We finally have a starting point for the 2019 NBA season... and our Boston Celtics will kick it all off for the NBA against the Philadelphia 76ers opening night. Justin and Jon extensively looked at that matchup and tried to determine how the Celtics might start that game... Horford and going small or Horford and Baynes and one of the C's talented wings sitting.

One of those talented wings, Jaylen Brown, told CJ McCollum's podcast that he expects the Celtics to make the NBA Finals. In a Lebron-less Eastern Conference, Jaylen's prediction isn't nearly as controversial as one typically would expect. To wrap up the show, Justin and Jon looked at the ongoing debate following Cedric Maxwell's visit to Celtics Beat on Sunday. Max suggested that Kevin Garnett was a better all-around player as a former Celtic, and then the hot takes flowed. Justin careful in showing his appreciation for KG, but Jon was ready to spill blood in his defense of Larry Joe Bird.
