The Boston Celtics are beginning a smooth partnership with Teddie Natural Peanut Butter. This is excellent news for Celtics fans who also can’t get enough peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Peanut butter news is only minor news for Celtics fans. They’re waiting for Boston to turn their season around after getting off to a relatively slow start. After coming within minutes of beating LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals last season, the team is off to a 7-6 start.
That’s not the start that most Celtics fans envisioned, but Boston has a lot of time to right the ship before the playoffs begin. Brad Stevens is an excellent coach and the team didn’t hit their stride until the playoffs. Not to mention, they played their best basketball of the year after Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward were lost for the season. It’s far too early for fans to hit the panic button.
The Eastern Conference looks much tougher now than it did a few months ago. First off, the Toronto Raptors and Kawhi Leonard are off to a scorching hot start. The Philadelphia 76ers just added Jimmy Butler and they’re hoping to avenge their playoff defeat to the Celtics. Plus, the Milwaukee Bucks and Giannis Antetokounmpo look better than anyone expected.
