Smarf has been a revelation from deep this year. the Celts were on a little skid (they had a few this year), and smarf got hot from 3 in a game, seemingly uplifting the entire fanbases mood in the process. all I could picture was YodaSmarf lifting the X-wing out the swamp.
for some reason in the ECF in 2018 Kyle Korver and Coach Tyronn Lue were completely thrown out of whack by the Celtics not playing their rookie Semi Ojeleye...who averaged 15mins and 2.7 pts per game that season. it was confusing for everyone involved.
Marcus Morris has been an absolute treat on the Celtics. One of the most pleasant surprises of the last two seasons. In a game in mid 2018 Marcus went off against the Thunder who had Russ, Paul George & Carmelo at the time and hit a game winner that can only be described as 'Sam Cassellian'. the only thing that topped his shot was his hilarious stare down smile and sip he gave the Thunder bench after. a moment that deserved all the funk

Jayson Tatum had one of the greatest rookie campaigns in Celtics history. he played excellent efficient basketball all year. And then when it mattered most and when his team was most short handed, he helped propel the team within 10 minutes of the NBA Finals in a game 7 against one of the greatest players of our generation. Tatum dunked on LeBron in game 7 so hard that he immediately decided to move as far away as possible and change conferences. the original pic was Jayson and his son Deuce (Jayson Tatum Jr.) napping.
The Celtics had a very unique and fun roster in 2018. I at on point came across this absurd image of Shane Larkin, Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum at a team event and couldn't help but have fun with it.
Kyrie Irving is a pointgod. Few humans have ever possessed his level of skill and basketball IQ. in 2018 he had his naming ceremony with his mothers Indigenous Tribe of Origin, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Kyrie was bestowed the name 'Little Mountain' and his sister was named 'Buffalo Woman'.
Robert T I M E L O R D Williams shares the name of a funkadelic painter, has the catch radius of. a blackhole, and appear to freeze time when he leaves the ground to dunk or block shots. One of the leagues best big men, Anthony Davis, had a lot of trouble with him in their brief first meeting.
