FINALLY. The Boston Celtics 2016-17 season is on the verge of starting. Tonight, Oct. 4th 2016, the C's are set to take on the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers are without their first overall draft pick, Ben Simmons, however they still have plenty of young talent to showcase, as do the Celtics.
The Boston Celtics look to get a lot out of their young guys. Specifically, we should see a heavy load of Terry Rozier and Jaylen Brown running the floor. I've said it before and I will say it again, they could very possibly be the two stars of the green in the future.
We also get to see Al Horford in green tonight. It will be interesting to watch him work against the young Sixers bigs Jahlil Okafor, Joel Embiid, and Dario Saric.
Due to a foot injury, Ben Simmons will not be on the floor tonight. In fact, it is said that he may even miss the entire season.
