I don’t think it’s wise to compare The Process with what the Celtics have done. Any team can re-create The Process imminently if they want, but almost no team can replicate the series of events that has benefited the Celtics. Getting a team to agree to what amounts to 4 unprotected 1sts in a trade is unthinkable today and then that same team being perennially trash during those years picks is remarkably lucky. The Celtics outcome is the product of, IMO an isolated incident and can’t be repeated thus making it not a process at all.
