The Celtics should want nothing to do with Kevin Durant

As we do our best to make sense each new, bemusing Kevin Durant rumor — KD demands Steve Nash gone as Nets coach … KD wants to play with Marcus Smart … KD might be cool to reunite with James Harden in Philly — allow me to make one request of you, Celtics fans.

Think for a moment, if you would, about why you fell and fell hard for last year’s team. Think about the most enjoyable characteristics of the 2021-22 Celtics as they picked themselves up off the hardwood after a 25-25 start, won 26 of their final 32 regular-season games, wiped out the Nets, defending champ Bucks, and ever-annoying Heat in the playoffs before falling two wins shy of the NBA title against the noble Warriors.
