Yes but Bill Russell was the main guy in those Celtics teams.. I think he is also one of the best defensive players
When the league had 4 teams


I don’t rate the early celtics dynasty at the same title for title weight as the bulls or lakers more recent dynasties

More or less like early Real Madrid in the European Cup

He was a great player but people have different preferences. Also its not possible to have a starting XI of main guys, you need "water carriers" as you mentioned and Bill Russell can play that role and still be elite

I saw highlights of Boston v Miami.. it was such a high level of basketball. I was hoping for a Celtics win and it looked like they will the way Tatum was playing in the first half, he was incredible. But Miami also have a very organized group and lead by Butler they have a guy who is a fierce competitor.

Butler is going to be thinking about that shot for a while. Overall pretty happy Celtics are through.

Haven't watched NBA in ages, and just watched back to back the first 2 games in the finals.

Man that atomic midget Curry still has it.

I gotta admit that Steph Curry is really good. He is like the Messi of basketball, it's annoying that he resembles the type of game that I don't want to identify with but the guy was celebrating the ring halfway through the game and he backed it up.

Celtics have a really good team and this can be a valuable experience for them in future games.
