I think once Smart is healthy and integrated back in, whether Danny makes any additions or not at the trade deadline, this team is going to be a hard out. Teams above them will be looking to avoid them. We've also quietly moved up to 4th in the East. A bench addition, whether through young development (Langford or Grant) or the acquisition of a veteran and I think we'd be really tough to beat. Especially with TimeLord
Healthy and tuned in defensively come the playoffs, as KG said, anything is possible!
During the "Dark" period, I kept saying that it felt to me that we were close. None of Kemba, Tatum, or Brown have been 100%. We will get Smart back and even Langford. Plus likely something from a trade or signing of someone released. I don't see us winning a title this year but ECF is a reasonable stretch goal.
Given how easily we make the ECF I can't disagree with that
I also really like how we match up with Brooklyn when healthy. Philly would be interesting given we own them but they're better under Doc. The Bucks are a tricky one, they've got a nasty big 3 but no depth.
Will be very interesting. Just need to get some continuity at the pointy end of the season
