New Orleans Pelicans guard CJ McCollum on what’s behind the Boston Celtics’ hot start

Sometimes, the best way to get an understanding of a phenomenon is to get outside the bubble it exists in. In the case of the Boston Celtics‘ hot start to the 2022-23 NBA season, a glimpse offered by New Orleans Pelicans veteran guard CJ McCollum is a most informative one.

McCollum, who hosts his eponymous podcast, “The CJ McCollum Show,” recently discussed how well the Celtics have played on both ends of the court to start 2022-23 with guest Izzy Gutierrez weighing in. They also get into the origin of the too small taunt currently getting overused in the league and much more as well.

Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what the pair had to talk about in this video put together for the ESPN YouTube channel.
