The Boston Celtics are heading into the 2022-23 season with high hopes. After an unexpected run to the 2022 NBA Finals, the Celtics have put together a solid offseason, adding Malcolm Brogdon and Danilo Gallinari to their squad without losing any key rotation pieces in the process. As a result, the C’s are favored to make a run back to the Finals again next season.
Everything is looking good for the Boston Celtics…except their visiting locker room
Things are looking great for the Boston Celtics, as they are in a prime position to win a title over the next few seasons. But there is always something that can be improved upon, no matter how perfect things may seem. If you ask Duncan Robinson of the Miami Heat and Pat Connaughton of the Milwaukee Bucks, there is one thing Boston could improve upon immediately; their visiting locker room.
Robinson and Connaughton took the Celtics visiting locker room to task on Robinson’s “The Long Shot” podcast. Robinson compared it to a high school locker room, while Connaughton said it was easily the worst visiting locker room in the NBA.
“If you walked in and said, ‘This is a high school locker room,’ I would say that’s a sh***y high school locker room,” Robinson said.
“The Boston Celtics locker room is the worst visiting team locker room in the NBA,” Connaughton said.
It sounds like the Boston Celtics visiting locker room could use some upgrades
Neither Robinson nor Connaughton are known for their controversial statements, so it was a bit surprising to hear them light up the Celtics locker room like this. Both guys certainly became pretty familiar with the locker room, considering both their teams recently endured seven-game battles with Boston in the postseason.
Maybe their calls to action will prompt the Celtics to make the changes necessary to please Robinson and Connaughton. Or perhaps they will leave it as is to further irritate the two players, along with what can only be countless other players around the league.
Whatever the case may be, the Celtics players aren’t concerned about this in the slightest, considering they don’t have to use the visiting locker room. And as long as their own players are happy, the C’s probably won’t pay too much attention to Robinson and Connaughton’s complaints.
