At +500 odds (courtesy of FanDuel Sportsbook), the Boston Celtics enter the 2022-23 NBA season as title favorites.
Just don’t tell that to Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, who believes expectations for his team may be a little high.
“I think that [last year’s] performance was a bit overrated,” said Grousbeck. “[We were] a finalist and two wins away from winning it, but when you look back, Brooklyn was a tough series, and then we had to go seven games [against the Bucks and Heat] … We’re not a hands-down team to repeat as Eastern Conference champions. I think we’re a quality team.”
Boston’s finals odds were buoyed with the addition of Malcolm Brogdon, whom the team acquired in a trade from the Indiana Pacers this offseason in exchange for a 2023 first-round pick and five players, including Aaron Nesmith and Daniel Theis.
