The Boston Celtics are, in many ways, redefining success in the NBA. They have been head and shoulders above every team they’ve faced. Some of that is due to injury luck, of course. But most of it is simple talent. The Celtics were a historic regular-season NBA team, with the fifth-best margin of victory of any team in league history. And they’ve done just about the same in the playoffs so far, with the ninth-best margin of victory in league history. That’s what happens when your fifth-best player (sixth?
