Boston Celtics point guard Terry Rozier is not known for his modesty, and he made that abundantly clear when he hopped on Barstool's Mickstape podcast to talk about playing the Philadelphia 76ers on opening night and Christmas day.
Rozier's opinion on the matter was simple. "Lunch meat, lunch meat."
The NBA seems to be trying its very hardest to turn this matchup into the next big rivalry in basketball.
It makes sense, as these are probably the two teams with the brightest futures in the Eastern Conference and figure to be seeing each other in the postseason for years to come.
The two clubs already have one playoff series under their belt, and it didn't exactly go smoothly.
Boston managed to beat the Sixers in five games in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Celtics were missing All-Stars Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward and still found themselves one game away from making the NBA Finals. Brad Stevens' squad is looking loaded for this upcoming campaign and is the favorite to win the East.
Despite the disappointing end to their season Philadelphia also had a great year, shocking a lot of people by winning 52 games and capturing the third seed in the East. Young stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid impressed the NBA and if they can get 2017 first overall pick Markelle Fultz back to full strength, they will be even more dangerous.
The NBA season can't get back soon enough, and these two teams will be must-watch TV all year long.
