CLPod 74: The Cs teams that never were, late summer moves & more

Two months out from the start of the regular season, and nearly half as long from camp, more than a few of us are starting to get antsy without basketball to watch.

With that in mind, we decided it was time to dust off the microphones and record an episode of the CLPod to talk about the (very few) moves of note going down since the last time we recorded.

And with the team in a liminal space between seasons, neither last season's Celtics nor the next, Mark Allison and Justin Quinn got to thinking about all the different ways this timeline of Boston's journey from one contending squad to the next could have gone differently.

So, we put our heads together, and tried to imagine how the Cs might look if Danny Ainge had kept the last title team together longer, or if Brad Stevens had said no, or if Boston hadn't signed Al Horford, or...well, you'll have to listen to hear them all.

So, if you're as ready as we are for some real, live NBA games that count, you're going to have to wait a while. But if you want some news and analysis on not just this timeline, but several others we don't happen to be on, buckle up and listen to this week's CLPod - we have at least another month of doldrums ahead of us, and a lot to be thankful for, if our thought experiments are as realistic as we think they are.
