For some of us, the rise of the Philadelphia 76ers after a slow start to the 2022-23 NBA season has made the Atlantic Division ball club the biggest threat to the Boston Celtics this season in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. But others see the Milwaukee Bucks as a much more potent opponent who could threaten to upend the Celtics’ designs for a return to the NBA Finals.
We can count among the latter ESPN NBA analyst Tim Legler, who recently took some time in an appearance on “SportsCenter” to break down why he believes the team of superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is Boston’s most dangerous foe this season.
To see what the former NBAer has to say about that potential postseason collision between two of the East’s top teams, take a look at the clip we have embedded above.
