Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce on the path to true contention for the Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics’ exit against the Miami Heat in the 2023 Eastern Conference finals was disappointing due to their lack of energy and adjustments in key games of the series despite the stakes being as high as they were. Beating a team four straight times is very difficult at any stage of the postseason and even more so three rounds into the playoffs, and the Celtics did not come prepared with a strong mentality.

The storied ball club needs to evaluate its weaknesses more thoroughly moving forward and improve itself in various aspects to have a better shot at hanging another banner in Boston.

As to how the Celtics ought to accomplish all of the above, however, has been a topic of considerable debate almost from the moment the final buzzer sounded for Game 7 of the series.

Boston Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce sat down on a recent episode of the “Ticket and the Truth” podcast to talk about it.

Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear the conclusions these two Celtics giants came to.
