If you see a 42-44 win team, ~6 seed, would you:Fair enough.
From my admittedly tiny minority point of view, the teams that concern me vis a vis the Celtics are the Hawks, Magic, Cavs, Bulls and Knicks of the world rather than Milwaukee, Toronto, Philadelphia and Indiana. The latter teams are going to be there at the end next year but those other teams have a shot to improve enough (particularly the Hawks) to pose an obstacle two or three years down the road when the Celtics are hopefully better and the kids have had enough seasoning to potentially be very effective in their roles.
I am not even worried about Milwaukee et al because the talent gap between them and Boston at present is pretty huge and, barring major injuries, I don't see the Celtics beating them in a series, even without Korver.
1. Want to see TL get a serious look this season?
2. See Tatum/Brown, along with Kemba, be the focal point of the offense?
3. Look to move Hayward, if healthy/producing and the team is around .500 (since he can bolt at seasons end)?
4. Work in Edwards, Grant, and Romeo at the back end of rotations?
Winning would be priority #1, but use some minutes for guys that are actually going to be here for a few more seasons. There might be some merit to this if Milwaukee, Philly and others are much better then the Celtics this season
