The Boston Celtics have a nice starting core with Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, and Al Horford. However, that fifth spot (which has been Amir Johnson) is not nearly as strong. Johnson is starting for his defense and his defense only. He is top ten for power forwards in DRPM (Player'...

CelticsBlog’s Midseason Awards: biggest surprise/most improved

Leave it to Avery Bradley, the longest tenured Celtic, to be the majority favorite for biggest surprise/most improved. Bill Sy: Avery Bradley's progress under Brad Stevens has been steady, but I really didn't expect for him to find this other gear this season.
