Kind of like how Hayward's injury was a blessing? That's worked out great for the team.
Uhhh Hayward never played for the Celtics prior to getting injured so we never had an idea what kind of leader he'd be or how the chemistry would be with the other guys.
Kyrie has shown on more than one occasion to be less than becoming of a leader.
I like how he's upped his assists game this year but the team still doesn't seem to be playing TOGETHER with him in the lineup.
For whatever reason the team seems to be more like a team when he's not in the lineup.
My point is, injuries are never a blessing. If you think Irving is a problem on the team (I don't) then an injury isn't going to help that situation because he'll be back eventually and then reintegrating him becomes a problem.
