The Boston Sports Journal’s Brian Robb helps Austin Bumpus take a look at the state of the Boston Celtics on the fifth episode of Expand On That: A Boston 25 Sports Podcast.
They evaluate the team’s improbable postseason run (:55 to 6:20), debating whether their season ended on a hopeful note or a somber one after their Game 7 loss to the Cavaliers.
Robb looks ahead to the future, addressing Danny Ainge’s comments that the team may stay put as far as offseason moves are concerned (6:21 to 9:05).
The two look at the Terry Rozier situation (9:06 to 11:53), and what the team will do with their new success story at point guard.
With no set leader in the postseason with a young lineup, Robb helps to decide who should be the leader of the roster for the next few years (11:55 to 14:30).
With the future up in the air once Kyrie Irving’s contract runs out in a few years, Robb helps to figure out how long this Celtics group can last together (14:31 to 17:42).
To wrap things up, Robb and Bumpus give their very-early expectations for next season, setting high goals for the young Celtics roster (17:43 to 20:20).
