While I disagree with you on numerous points, I appreciate you clarifying your position.It is relevant to understand that starting Baynes was never part of the plan last season until Hayward went down, Morris and Smart missed 30 games plus Horford and Jaylen missed another dozen.....yet despite being forced to start due to attrition he was still moved to the bench against multiple opponents to protect Horford.
I’m anti-Horford at the 4 for sure......because he’s not a 4 and took one for the team last year. However there are always some matchups where playing them together is the correct play which is evidence by Horfords. numbers at the 4 in these few advantageous lineups.
Even if Horford is as effective chasing wings 25-feet from the basket playing out of position as he is defending the paint you are losing a ton on the other end by playing Baynes over Morris or Tatum. As close as Brad is to losing this team by starting and inferior player with guys in contract years this would have been the final nail in the coffin. Brad couldn’t find enough minutes for everyone out of the gate without playing two bigs together which is why he didn’t. There are still some teams for short minutes when I’m in favor of it but there aren’t a ton of them.
Why would you even suggest replacing Tatum, that's strange. Is that your game plan when those few going BIG moments happen?
