Danny Ainge Addresses the End of the Celtics’ Season
Jayson Tatum emerged as a bona fide star, Jaylen Brown showed he can be a consistent presence in the lineup and Kemba Walker helped the Boston Celtics put the failed Kyrie Irving experiment behind them. But there is still work to do in Boston after the Celtics squandered their best opportunity yet under Brad Stevens to get back to the NBA Finals.

One is Gordon Hayward, who was sidelined in the opening game of the first-round series with a sprained right ankle and missed most of the postseason.
