The updated, post-trade-deadline TrueHoop Championship Bus

In September, we discussed this season’s TrueHoop NBA championship bus. As we expected, the lack of a real superteam—including the ostensible one(s) the Nets have dismantled—have made parity the buzzword of the year.
Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Russell Westbrook and dozens of other players have moved … but where does that leave us?

Already the league’s best team, the Celtics got even better at the trade deadline, adding Mike Muscala—a solid shooting and defensive option and another big man who can help in a pinch.
It’s hard to trust the knees of Robert Williams III. Now the Celtics have Muscala, Luke Kornet, and Blake Griffin to fortify their ranks behind Time Lord, starter Al Horford, and rotation big Grant Williams.
Right when I say I’m off the Bucks, they rattle off 10 straight wins.
