Back in 07-08 the fast start the Big Three had was primarily defensive. They were smothering. They closed out. They were physical in the paint. They overwhelmed teams defensively.The game is different now with the focus on threes and pace and space but in a lot of ways, this Celtic team, like in 07-08 is remaking itself with elite defense. Their length, size, strength, physicality, and mental toughness defines this team much like the defense defuned the 08' team.Difference is that team was led by older vets. This team is defensively elite and led by youth. We could be looking at one of the best defensive teams in the league for the next 5 years. They are playing that well. It is just so cool to watch.
