Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports Let’s take a moment to appreciate that the Celtics’ new star guard is really good at basketball.

Seemingly freed of the toxic locker room environment that plagued last season’s ill-fated squad and fresh off an undefeated preseason, that “new team smell” is in the air, and it smells pretty good. The Celtics were as cautious as most teams tend to be in the preseason, so apart from some assertive offensive play from Jayson Tatum and some hints of improved athleticism from...
