The Boston Celtics and their Journey to Failure

February 3rd, 2020. Kevin Durant is balling out in the Boston Garden tonight. Celtics fans in 2016 would have loved to hear that statement all those years ago, when a plucky Boston squad led by 5’9” Isaiah Thomas, the ever-reliable Al Horford, and Brad Stevens’ coaching genius seemed to be on the upward trend considering …
