Kemba Walker's comeback, Payton Pritchard's emergence & NBA COVID-19 complications ft. Adam Himmelsbach

Chris Gasper is breaking down the Celtics with Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe. America has struggled to curb COVID-19, so it shouldn’t be shocking that the virus is altering the NBA's schedule. How is the league going to move forward this season? Also, Gasper asks Himmelsbach for his thoughts on how Kemba Walker's return changes the dynamics of an already promising Celtics season. Himmelsbach recounts just how happy Danny Ainge was to draft rookie revelation Payton Pritchard and throws out a trade target for the Celtics. Producer Ellen Fleming jumps in with thoughts on the Pritchard nickname debate and reveals why James Harden would've been a bad fit for the Green — it has nothing to do with basketball.
