You need to be able to put the ball on the floor and score off the dribble to go deep in the playoffs. Buddy Hield can't score off the dribble and he can't play defense. He's offering nothing by way of the two most important playoff traits so why are we even wasting our time?
Miami has still managed to be effective with their DHO stuff in the playoffs. They also have Jimmy and Dragic to give you off the dribble scoring, which I agree is more important in the playoffs, but I still think it's a plus. I don't think Bam would be as successful as he has been without those shooters. It also makes life easier on your off the dribble scorer if you can open up the lane more. Come playoff time teams seem fine with leaving mediocre shooters wide open and living with the results.
