...a blessing in disguise.I might rather have Rozier than Irving. It seems as though things gelled last year with Rozier at the helm.
It will make the rotations more clear and give more shots to guys who probably need it more.
Hopefully Irving can get some rest and heal up and be FULLY healthy for the stretch run/playoff push.
But a non-contact injury is almost never good.
Rozier is not half the player Kyrie is and doesn't have the intelligence on the court that Kyrie has. Also, he's not nearly as effective a shooter.
The East surprisingly enough is much better this season than last season. Last season's Celtic playoff team doesn't make it past the 2nd round (or maybe the 1st.) We need Kyrie for a deep playoff run.
We'd be a 1st round exit. Took us 7 games to beat Milwaukee in the first round last year. I think people are forgetting the actuality of last season's playoffs and thinking it was some dominant run. Save for the Philly series, we struggled
on the road in the playoffs. (Interestingly enough, Rozier no-showed during road games, a trend which has continued this season).
