Not necessarily dude. The Wiz arguably have a top 10 player. So did the Pelicans. Now that I think about it, the Celtics do too. All of em are/were on the treadmill.
How are the Celtics on a treadmill? They have a top 15-20 player in Tatum who is only 22 years old who is already putting up 26, 7 and 6. He is already so good and has room to grow. The Celtic's ceiling will be determined by Tatum and Brown's growth.
I literally said to not be on the treadmill you need a high level shot creator prospect. He is one of the best ones in the league.
Do we have anyone even close on our team?
Okay I forgot how young Tatum and Brown are lol. Tatum is definitely high level, so is Brown, but despite their presence on the team the Celtics haven't felt like true contenders in the last few years and it still feels like they're like two or three pieces away from being contenders. Even then, I don't see them being better than the Nets, the Bucks, or the 76ers within the next two years or the Hawks after that.
If Ainge wasn't so stingy, they could have flipped Brown and a few picks for Harden and easily beaten the Bucks and prevented the Nets super team from forming. When you have the kind of core they do, you're never far from contention.
