    Easily the favorite…good god Espn is such biased trash content most of the time.

    They have a best record in nba and after tonight Denver is trailing by one. When all healty Boston is probably the best team in the league,I agree with that. But best player in the league!? I like Him but tonight he shooted 9/27 with 7 TO…Joker did not have a nights like that this season. Don’t disrespect b2b2b mvp.

      shooting is not everything, homeboy. Tatum did everything else

    • Crnjak

      @12branko12
      So did Jokic…..night after night. He could easily average 30+ points if he just take number of shots that other superstar takes. Tatum is curently top 5,maybe top 3 player in the league…no doubt it. I love watchin Celtics and Tatum…they are deepest team in nba. But SAS is Jokic hater and always finding reasons for his mvp case.

      @Crnjak I told you alraedy I do think that Jokic is better player and, imo, deserves the MVP. I just don’t like how Tatum’s underappreciated considering the other top candidates (I am talking mostly about fans). And SAS is typical SAS, he should not surprise you. The guy will never support a foreign player.

    If you watched the game Tatum played bad tbh. And I’m a Celtics fan. His stat line is good but he nearly costed us the game. He turned the ball over 3 times in the last minute of the 4th quarter. JB saved us with that tying 3

    • MJS FAM

      January 20, 2023 at 12:49 pm

      So did Curry our defense stepped up on curry if u noticed all his shots we’re definitely hard that’s why he couldn’t really do anything

    • MJS FAM

      January 20, 2023 at 12:50 pm

      And also we have to remember Brown just coming back after a week and he was rusty if brown played like his old self last night We win that game in Regulation

    • Issiah Zeek

      January 20, 2023 at 12:59 pm

      @MJS FAM Horford… he was the key once again! I believe he hit a 3 before JB did to bring them closer and switched on to Curry… it’s funny cuz Curry could’ve punished him but instead settled! Good game but I think both teams are still Flawed! Warriors are a shell of themselves… Boston should’ve smoked them and I’m a Warriors fan!

      January 20, 2023 at 10:01 pm

      A bad game with 34 and 19?

    January 20, 2023 at 12:46 pm

    Best team in January or best team in JUNE

    • Jude

      January 20, 2023 at 9:53 pm

      Warriors are .500 if that…. And the Celtics can barley beat them… Warriors won the 1st game against them…. Bucks are best in the east don’t be fooled because of injures.

    • AverageDre

      January 23, 2023 at 9:22 am

      @Jude so you are going with the injuries excuse? lol i can use that logic for the first game against the warriors missing horford and williams

    • AverageDre

      January 23, 2023 at 9:22 am

      @Jude and the Bucks are not good lol even if Middleton is playing he’s mid now sorry

    Take Stephen a off espn thanks

    January 20, 2023 at 1:19 pm

    How come every time they talk about the Celtics it’s always a Quick Take? Why can’t they get a full segment. Best record in basketball for a while now.

    • Joel Baez

      January 21, 2023 at 7:32 pm

      Best record for more than half a season

    • Corleone05

      January 21, 2023 at 8:59 pm

      coz they don’t like the celtics.. it’s been like this always.

    • TESLARAIDEN 8

      January 22, 2023 at 12:46 am

      Much as I also want Celtics to get credit for their record it’s a bit difficult to get a 10-20 minute segment out of “yeah Celtics are the best team, roll credits” 😅

    • EazyDoesIt

      January 23, 2023 at 12:34 pm

      My guys get passed and hated on they aren’t “polarizing” enough for espn …. But it’s all good they will win it all and force them to ☘️

    • Adreem

      January 23, 2023 at 1:30 pm

      it’s politics🤦‍♂️

    These 🤡 are ALWAYS WRONG they don’t look at anything 3-4 steps ahead they only look at the last 24 hours like the 🙉 that they are

  10. Moldveien

    January 20, 2023 at 1:45 pm

    Idk bro I dont see how you can say that Tatum is a consensus first pick for mvp qtm, while jokic is literall 0.1 assists a game off avaraging a triple double while being nr 1 in the west.

  11. Joshua Askew

    January 20, 2023 at 1:50 pm

    “finals rematch”!? It’s a regular season game

  12. tru gee

    January 20, 2023 at 1:59 pm

    Over the bucks?? Denver??

  13. Jim W

    January 20, 2023 at 2:34 pm

    Barely keeping ahead of the Bucks who havent been close to full strength all season. Going to be interesting to see them play a healthy Bucks team.

    • AverageDre

      January 23, 2023 at 10:32 am

      @Jim W i dont even think you get past the sixers at this point💀

    • Jim W

      January 23, 2023 at 11:44 am

      @AverageDre inefficient now? You clearly are just grabbing as bs.

    • AverageDre

      January 23, 2023 at 11:59 am

      @Jim W 1 for 11 1 for 12 6 for 17 32 fg pct and 26 percent on the season for 3s you right that’s pretty efficient lmao

    • Jim W

      January 23, 2023 at 12:07 pm

      @AverageDre You realize the guy played low mins in 7 games after being out since last season? Your argument is weak.

    • AverageDre

      January 23, 2023 at 12:10 pm

      @Jim W and hes been mid every game im sorry you’re second best player is washed

  14. Tanmay Singh

    January 20, 2023 at 2:35 pm

    I’ll never get why the media hates Jokic so much.

    • PartizanBgd011

      January 23, 2023 at 12:31 pm

      @AverageDre I bet you fall asleep immediately after start reading a book. 😂😂😂 Just don’t forget to breathe.

    • AverageDre

      January 23, 2023 at 12:34 pm

      @PartizanBgd011 yeah i would if it was a book about the Denver Nuggets lmao

    • PartizanBgd011

      January 23, 2023 at 12:52 pm

      @AverageDre😂😂😂👍🏻 they don’t sell coloring books

    • AverageDre

      January 23, 2023 at 12:57 pm

      @PartizanBgd011 oh well coloring books im staying awake but a book, a poem, a biography, a game dont matter anything to do with the nuggets im sleeping

    • PartizanBgd011

      January 23, 2023 at 1:11 pm

      @AverageDre just stay between the lines brother, you’re doing well.

    Tatum against Nets was doubled 1st 3 quarters and finished the game 29 % shooting. When he shot at basket and someone finished it, it was counted as an assist. At least 5 guys above him at mvp race. What a clown S. A. S.

  16. Ewart Orugaagii Bey El

    January 20, 2023 at 5:02 pm

    Heat are coming

  17. Alvin Recio

    January 20, 2023 at 5:53 pm

    Let’s Go Celtics!!!!

  18. whatudoin1

    January 20, 2023 at 7:59 pm

    Why the celtics segments are so small 😂

  19. GRUNT91

    January 20, 2023 at 11:36 pm

    I sure hope so

  20. Chiboz

    January 20, 2023 at 11:46 pm

    Tatum with the light-skin stare

  21. joenette pelingon

    January 21, 2023 at 2:28 am

    in a rare moment,I agree with mr. smith

  22. Drew Wilson

    January 21, 2023 at 10:40 am

    Would be nice for JT to win MVP, Eastern Finals MVP and finals MVP this year

    • Morse Fine Arts

      January 22, 2023 at 11:46 am

      nah split the finals mvp and ECF mvp between Brown and Tatum….either way works for me

  23. RMlll

    January 21, 2023 at 12:37 pm

    It’s because we lost the finals. We can’t be #1 for no reason we need to take it this year, give ‘em a reason to talk about us

  24. Judith Mais

    January 21, 2023 at 1:17 pm

    Boston Celtics was also the best Team Last Year, when the Playoffs is over, let decide then!!! Not the best Regular Season Team, last year that was Phoenix Suns! 😂😂😂

    The most simplistic non complicated answer ever Stephen A. that’s all us Celtic’s fan ever wanted you too say lmfao.
