If you're Danny Ainge do you send someone to Hayward's house to help him pack his bags?
With the awesome chemistry and vibe this team has right now; in the words of a famous philosopher - Are you kidding me?
With Hayward back, this team will be a tough out. Including Hayward, we have 4 legit scoring threats who can basically create their own shot. With Hayward back, we basically have 3 playmakers (including Smart). Cs will be a team to be reckon with.
Now, do we have weaknesses? well yes. Who doesn't....
Houston and Milwaukee are basically a one man gang
Lakers are an injury away (AD fragile body, LBJ age) from disaster
LAC probably know by now KLeornard issues are chronic.
Phily chemistry is awful, might self-distruct
Denver and Toronto have more weaknesses/holes than anyone care to admit.
...yeah, I think we are right there. It won't be easy to get passed Gianis and Embid; but they will have to guard our BIG 4 as well...and heck, if we get passed Gianis, we'll probably have the formula to get passed Anthony Davis.
