I enjoyed watching last year’s team more. I suspect that having Hayward this year would have changed that.

Regardless of personal enjoyment, I think the team has exceeded reasonable expectations.

Last year's team was limited and over achieved, yes they were enjoyable to watch but i'd still rather have this yr's team.

I am inclined to think the Cs will eventually figure this mess out and come back better by March. 

Although Im really inclined to believe that all other playoff teams have improved and that  I have no confidence whatsover that this team is 100% getting out of round one. For me we are at the same tier as Indiana, cHeat and the Bucks. Forget the Raps and Cavs because those two will slug it out in the ECF barring injuries.

There was a magic to last year's team, mostly owing to the King in the Fourth stuff, and the overall feeling that they were exceeding their talent by a good margin.

This year's team is plenty talented, they've just had bad luck with an injury to Hayward and most of the supporting cast is very young.

I really enjoyed watching this Celts team earlier in the season but the last month or two it feels like the joy has gone out of the team, it's like they proved they weren't dead with the 16 game winning streak following Hayward's injury and now they've been coasting / are burnt out.

I'm hoping they become fun to watch again before the playoffs roll around.
