IT and Crowder would probably play at a higher level
Rose tended to look good against us
Wade would have done his usual playoff tricks
I agree they would look better. The problem is that there was huge war in the cavs locker room. It was the new guys (it Crowder wade rose etc) vs originals (lebron love smith Thompson). Some cavs fans really speculated Crowder and IT were still trojan horses for the celtics
Out of Clarkson, Hood, and Nance I thought at least one of these guys would seize this moment and elevate their play and brand. All three fizzled out especially Hood
I thought going into the playoffs you would get 1-2 games per series where Clarkson and Hood were on fire and looking great, 1-2 games where they were as awful as they have been. Both are terrible and those mid season trades are looking worse by the day.
