What do u wanna bet that if our starting 5 is healthy we win the first round. I'm open. Holla at me.
Agree 100%. The problem is whether it's reasonable to expect both Horford and IT to play injury-free and, in the case of IT, to have another career year. Secondly, Horford is 31 and, it's not clear to many of us, if he's durable enough to play center anymore. But if they're both healthy: first round absolutely.
IT has been one of the healthiest players in the league. He rarely misses games and Horford aside from some freak injuries has been able to play as well(shoulder injury that put him out for a season ?)..
Point taken. I think you're expecting too much from Horford given his age. He had several really good games during the playoffs, but was also completely outplayed in several games. Re IT: I have my theory about little guys who play with reckless abandon. He's a gutsy player.
