The 2018-19 Boston Celtics flunked their chemistry test. But if you ask Enes Kanter, the 2019-20 squad deserves an A-plus.

Based on the snapshots we've gotten from the NBA bubble, the Celtics have thoroughly enjoyed each other's company as they gear up for the 2020 NBA restart later this month.

Kanter confirmed as much Tuesday, boasting on Twitter that the C's are second to none when it comes to team chemistry.

Is Kanter a little biased? Yes. Might several other NBA title contenders disagree? Sure.

Chemistry absolutely has been one of the Celtics' strong suits this season, though, and it's followed them into the bubble: The C's have had a grand old time on the golf course, swimming pool and volleyball court during their downtime away from practices.

Kanter and point guard Kemba Walker have played a key role in Boston's improved chemistry, as the team's two free-agent additions have meshed seamlessly with a young Celtics squad featuring budding stars in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown.

The Celtics had plenty of mouths to feed last season with Kyrie Irving, Terry Rozier, Marcus Morris and Al Horford all vying for touches with Tatum, Brown and Gordon Hayward, but Brad Stevens' club has played largely selfless basketball this season en route to a 43-21 regular-season record.

 

Can the C's translate their good vibes into a deep playoff run in Orlando? We'll start finding out next Friday when they open their "seeding" round against the Milwaukee Bucks.
