Charles Barkley has been the number one fan of the Boston Celtics this season as he roots for them in their quest for championship No. 18. He reiterated his strong faith in them last night on TNT’s “Inside the NBA.”

There’s no doubt that the Celtics have been the best team in the league this season. Before their most recent losses against the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Denver Nuggets, they went on a roller coaster 11-game-winning run where they annihilated everyone in their path.

Barkley, speaking before the game against the Nuggets, voiced his support for the Celtics and went further to say that anything short of winning the NBA title would amount to failure for them as an organization given their current form. He said:

If they [the Celtics] don’t win a championship this year, it would be a total gag job. They’ve got everything. You’ve got [Jaylen] Brown and [Jayson] Tatum, you’ve got two of the 10 best players in the league, probably. ... I will be shocked if the Celtics don’t win.

It’s easy to understand Chuck’s faith in the Boston Celtics. They boast the best record in the league, 48-15, and also a better roster than the one that lost to the Golden State Warriors in their last Finals appearance. However, they still have a lot to do if they are to become the team with the most NBA championship titles.

Boston Celtics lose potential 2024 NBA Finals audition against the Denver Nuggets

Last night at the Ball Arena, the Denver Nuggets led by Nikola Jokic bounced back with a 115-109 win against the best team in the league, the Boston Celtics. In the process, condemning the C’s to their second loss in a row.

The Joker showed his MVP credentials with a commanding 32 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists, his 20th triple-double of the season. Jayson Tatum had a quiet night, but it didn’t stop Jaylen Brown who, despite his best effort of 41 points, 14 rebounds, and four assists, couldn’t prevent their third loss in a row to the Nuggets.

The Celtics have a chance to bounce back when they visit the Footprint Center, in Phoenix, to take on Kevin Durant and the Phoenix Suns.
