3. Boston Celtics – Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kristaps Porzingis

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown led the Celtics to another Conference Finals appearance last year and have constantly been amongst the favorites to win a title. The Celtics have added Kristaps Porzingis to the roster, giving them a different dimension that continues to help spread the floor.

With the Wizards last season, he scored 23 points per game and hit 38.5 percent from three as he showed his great ability to catch and shoot. At 7-foot-3, he also provides great interior play on both ends of the floor and as the third option is ideal for the Celtics. Porzingis improved the Wizards by 8.5 points per 100 possessions when on the court, per Cleaning the Glass, so he will certainly play a part for the Celtics and any success they may have.

He may have ended up playing as the second option with the Dallas Mavericks, but that was with a very dominant iso player in Luka Doncic. With Tatum and Brown alongside him, he is now one of the best third options in the league, and the two Js will find ways to incorporate him into the offense and make a big difference.

Tatum was an early front-runner for MVP last season, Brown is now the highest-paid player in the league, and Porzingis is a borderline All-Star, so the quality is there. On paper, they should fit together well as a trio.
