I think we're a little better than the Wizards but they are a very good basketball team.  Their bench is pretty bad and their coach isn't exactly an X's and O's wizard (no pun intended) but they do have a legit superstar.  John Wall is insane, Bradley Beal is really good, and Otto Porter is solid albeit overrated.  I think we could hypothetically take them out in 6 now that we've added Hayward.  Heck, we were close to beating them in 6 with last year's team.

Plus, their contract situation is sort of a nightmare.
Bad coach, awful bench, IT>Wall, Smart>Beal, AL>Gortat, Otto Porter.. i can't even remember what he has done last playoffs
It should be a 5 game for us

Smart > Beal ??

I am a big Smart supporter, but even I realize this must have been a typo...must've meant Hayward...right??
This is counting overall stats, Smart is obviously better in every aspect besides scoring, which is also only going up, AND honestly i don't believe Beal can stay healthy like last season
His small lead in rebounds and assists doesn't bridge the 13 point per game gap. The gap alone between Beal and Smart in terms of scoring is more than Smaet Smart has ever averaged. Beal is also one of the most efficient high volume scorers around.

No way is Smart better.

ROFL Smart's not even an NBA starter!

He played starter minutes (fifth most minutes on the Celtics last season)...

Having said that, I doubt that he'll be in the starting lineup this year, and despite Avery Bradley's departure.
