In an interview with Sky Italy, Danilo Gallinari said it is a championship or bust for Boston this season. The forward will bring the roster offense off the bench.

"The goal is the ring with Boston. Despite being in the NBA for 14 years, I feel excited for the next chapter in my career. At the Celtics, there are definitely many responsibilities and expectations. I have already talked with many of my new teammates and members of the coaching staff. They can’t wait to get back in action. There is great enthusiasm," Gallinari said.
