The NBA announced the results of its annual General Manager Survey today, and a number of Boston Celtics were littered throughout. We've gone through the full results from all 47 questions, and pulled out every mention.

They're listed below in two categories, those in which a Celtic garnered enough votes to amass a reportable percentage of total votes (i.e. the top vote getter or a substantive runner up), and those instances in which a Celtics’ player was simply highlighted as receiving additional votes.

We'll start with the former. Percentages of the total vote are included in parentheses.


Top Finishes

Boston Celtics voted as the second best team in the Eastern Conference (10% 1st place, 79% 2nd place, 8% 4th place)

Boston Celtics voted second in best overall moves this summer (25%)

Kyrie Irving voted fourth in addition most likely to have the biggest impact on team performance (7%)

Boston-Cleveland trade voted most surprising move of the offseason (45%)

Jayson Tatum voted second in rookie most likely to be the best player in five years (21%)

Brad Stevens voted second best head coach at make in-game adjustments (31%)

Brad Stevens voted coach running the third best offensive system (10%)

Brad Stevens voted coach with the sixth best defensive schemes (3%)

Kyrie Irving voted third most desirable player to have taking the final shot with a game on the line (7%)


Also Receiving Votes

Jaylen Brown as player most likely to have a breakout season in 2017-18

Gordon Hayward to Boston as most surprising move of the off season

Jason Tatum as most likely to win Rookie of the Year

Jason Tatum as most likely to bee the biggest steal relative to draft position

Marcus Smart as best perimeter defender

Brad Stevens as head coach that is best manager/motivator of people

Kyrie Irving as player fastest with the ball

Marcus Smart as toughest player in the NBA

Now is as a good a time as any to remember that these rankings are fairly inconsequential, though they do give a brief glimpse inside the minds of executives throughout the league. Their perception of players and teams has a major influence on trade and free agency markets, and in that sense these results do hold some value.

In the full survey, 93% of GMs expect Golden State to take the title. 7% say Cleveland.

At least in the view of the GMs, parity is still some distance away.

It would be nice to see someone else make it more than just the perceived (less than) two-horse race.  For the sake of the league, this would be a great time for teams like Boston and Houston to at least make some serious noise. It would be even better if an Eastern team in addition to Cleveland and Boston could show some chops.

The Nets showed some chops since our trade of Pierce and Garnett to them - lamb chops. And we were eternally grateful for that.

GSW will be who they are. But everyone will give them their respective A games.

They are likely to win it all again. But nothing is ever guaranteed.
