The NBA's weekly power rankings have placed the Celtics atop their list, as has ESPN. Beating the defending champions on your way to a 15-game winning streak will do that for you, or it damn well ought to, so kudos to the national analysts for taking note, and not just chalking it up as [insert team here] having a bad [insert thing team in question does well here] night.
Never thought that the #Celtics, Hayward injury or not, would be ranked No. 1 on ESPN's NBA power rankings at any point this season. Yet here they are, one spot ahead of the Warriors. Right where they deserve to be. pic.twitter.com/9oH9kyHInD
Yes, it's early. Yes, [insert good team here] might "flip a switch", or whatever you want to call actually caring about games. But right now, things are so bright for the Celts we should all take a moment to bask in the warmth that radiates off a team so hot it might as well be its own sun. Just don't tell Kyrie, or he might just try to explain to you how the league is, in fact, orbiting Boston.
