The Celtics With the Most to Prove this Season

Who’s got the most to prove going into the 18-19′ season? The Celtics enter the new season with an intriguing mix of players on the roster. They have a collection of established stars, developing contributors, long term projects, and unknowns. In this article, I’ll take a look at who on the roster has the most to prove to fans and the organization come October. Let’s get started. Robert Williams, F/C This one is a no brainer for most Celtics fans who have been paying attention this summer. Williams has a well-documented history of laziness.

“Mutual Interest” Between Jamal Crawford and Celtics

Jamal Crawford could be shipping up to Boston. According to Jared Weiss of the Athletic, there is apparently mutual interest between the 38-year old and the Boston Celtics. The Celtics don’t currently have a roster spot available. However, with the recent fiasco around Jabari Bird, Bird is expected to be released from the roster at some point in the near future. This leaves the door open for the team to sign the 3-time Sixth Man of the Year, likely for a one year contract.

Jabari Bird Arrested for Assault on Friday

Jabari Bird is in a whole lot of trouble. The young Celtics guard was arrested Friday night in Brighton, Massachusetts. As of this morning, he was in custody at St. Elizabeth’s hospital. The matters appear to be very serious- the Domestic Violence Unit of the BPD became involved in the situation. Charges against Bird include assault, strangulation and kidnapping. There’s no doubt that this is going to be a sticky situation for the 24-year-old. While allegations against athletes are always hairy, this certainly does not look good for Jabari Bird.

Among their targets were Damian Lillard, Kemba Walker, and-you guessed it- Boston’s own Terry...
