It’s become an age-old, philosophical question in the NBA. If a tree falls in the forest and there’s nobody there to hear it, do the Boston Celtics need a point guard?

It’s a vacancy they’ve struggled to fill since Isiah Thomas’ fall from grace. At the same time, they managed to enjoy a successful 2021-22 season without a conventional floor general. Their 12.8 Net Rating from the All-Star Break onwards was the best in the NBA.

If they can carry that success into a series victory over the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks, they’re unlikely to make any major moves this offseason.

A Conference Finals run would be enough of a success to merit only minor tinkering. On the other hand, a second-round exit may motivate them to upgrade at their weakest position.
