Boston Celtics ‘tough’ not to win NBA title, but Milwaukee Bucks ‘not scary’-Charles Barkley

March 8, 2024

Charles Barkley said the Boston Celtics have more quality than the Milwaukee Bucks and should be NBA champions in 2024. The Celtics lead the league overall with a 48-15 record, and TNT Sports analyst Barkley said the Celtics have “two of the best 10 players in the league and a sixth man.” , believes he has “everything” to win the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

TNT Sports analyst Charles Barkley says the Boston Celtics have “everything” to win their 18th NBA title this year and it would be “shocking” to see another champion.

With the 2008 championship, Boston hopes to end their 15-year wait for glory by giving the Los Angeles Lakers three titles. Since then, the Lakers have won 17 trophies each.

Led by Brad Stevens, I’m Udoka, and now Joe Mazzula, the Celtics have lost twice to the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals and once to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA over the past four seasons.

They are the bookmakers’ favorites this time around, and for good reason.

Led by Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, they have the best record in the entire league (48-15)

In fact, the Celtics recently won 11 straight games, culminating in a 55-point halftime lead against the Warriors, but have only lost three games this season at home at Fortress TD Garde

Their closest rival in the East is the Milwaukee Bucks, who are seven games back.

Wisconsin’s team received rave reviews in the preseason for adding Damian Lillard to a roster that already includes two-time NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo.

But Barkley rejected Milwaukee’s challenge, insisting that Boston must be stripped of the Larry O’Brien Trophy

“If they don’t win this year, it’s going to be a complete joke,” the Philadelphia 76ers legend told TNT Sports. they have everything.

He has two of the top 10 players in the league in Brown and Tatum.

We have a great leader in Jrue Holiday. You have the best sixth man in Kristaps Porzingis.You can also add Derrick White.

“The Celtics have everything, so it would be shocking if they didn’t win. They could easily solve problems on the bench.

To be honest, I think Porzingis should be benched.

If we need to score off the bench, we’ll bring in Porzingis – he can always finish the game. Other than the Celtics, there isn’t a single team in the East that scares me.

(The Bucks) have Giannis and Dame, and nobody’s afraid of them because they’re not very athletic. The Knicks don’t seem to be doing well. My Sixers are struggling without Joel (Embiid).

The Celtics lost two consecutive road games this week against the Cleveland Cavaliers and defending champion Denver Nuggets.

So they will look to get back into rhythm when they travel to take on the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night.
