Well on paper the Clippers had a top 2 team talent wise. They just had an overrated coach that couldn’t get the best out of his players.

Celtics on the other hand have a top 3 coach who gets the most out of his players.

Only complaint is probably should have tried make a move during the season to boost the bench. Can only retain flexibility for so long, we need to start making contender like moves eventually because that’s what we are.

On paper the Celtics have similar talent. Without Pandemic P and without Glenn Rivers. But maybe I've been looking at different papers all season.

Yeah you have been looking at different papers. Clippers were the favorites by many NBA analysts along with Vegas odds makers. Followed by the Lakers and Bucks.

Clippers underachieve and the Celtics have overachieved. Clippers were a disaster vs the Nuggets after being up 3-1.
