The Boston Celtics will look much different next season, that much we know.
Kyrie Irving and Al Horford headlined this offseason’s departures, but we think it’s fair to say that Horford’s exit left Celtics fans feeling a bit more blue than that of Irving. It certainly doesn’t help that Horford went to the Philadelphia 76ers, one of Boston’s biggest rivals.
Horford was introduced to the Philadelphia media last week, which was tough enough for C’s fans as it is, but the sight of the big man in Sixers blue likely is worse. Boston, shield your eyes.
