The point is everyone is injured or banged up this time of yr.Mysticmanjrf1 wrote: ↑Sun Jun 19, 2022 2:20 amBoston barely beat Milwaukee without Khris Middleton, and they were a missed Jimmy Butler three away from losing the Eastern Conference Finals to a very injured Heat. Not saying Boston isn't a good team, but the margins of victory were small. I feel like they need a point guard to create easier shots for Tatum/Brown more than another scorer.
Still can't believe the Lakers chose Westbrook over Buddy Hield. Swapping that contract for anything at this point seems optimistic.
I think the Celtic's inexperience and just lack of killer instinct has more to do with them barely getting by these teams.
And I find it laughable that anyone is concerned as to what the Lakers are going to do. They don't have to do anything but sit back and wait. The entire league is their farm system.
They'll "figure it out".
Tatum/Brown have now been to 4 East Finals and 1 NBA Finals...I'd think they now have the experience, but you're right about injuries. Williams wasn't right for the Finals either.
Not concerned about the Lakers, more laughing at the ineptitude. Although it's hard to laugh when you're a fan of the team that sunk millions and a 1st round pick into Kemba Walker, Evan Fournier, and Cam Reddish...
