Terrible choices. No way the Celtics lose to Toronto in the East finals. Toronto's best players play very small in the playoffs. And the Celtics will make the East finals. Cavs vs. Celtics in the East finals is what I would expect. (and yes, I expect the Celtics to get out of their mid season lull. I expect the Raptors to have a similar stretch in the near future)
Getting Hayward back ... Joining the team on road trips means he expects to be ready, and accordingly I at this point expect him to be back.
I think this poll is really a “Do you expect Hayward back?” kind of poll. Based on the recent news that he’ll begin traveling with the team in March, I absolutely do expect him back this year. Traveling with the team means he’s far enough along in his rehab that they’ll hope to get him involved in on-court activities with coaches and teammates during practices on road trips. (If you look at the schedule there are numerous off-days on March road trips, including even a 2-day break between games in Chicago and Minnesota in early March, which will probably allow for a full practice.)Getting Hayward back absolutely raises the ceiling on this team. We know it and the Celtics know it. You don’t travel with the team and get away from your daily long-term rehab regimen if you aren’t ready to take that next step. Joining the team on road trips means he expects to be ready, and accordingly I at this point expect him to be back.
