Assuming we'll jettison some of the kids this offseason (if we don't hit 2020-21 with expanded rosters due to COVID). But we need a couple more vets in the back end of the rotation to support the starters.
Well, if we do make the Finals, it would be quite a feat and would only be comparable to the 2012 Thunder making the Finals with so much youth on the roster. The only vets on that roster were D-Fish, Perk, and Nick Collison.Combined playoff experience (minutes) of potential contenders' top 9 rotation guys:
• Lakers: 21,889 minutes
• Rockets: 13,256 minutes
• Raptors: 12,849 minutes
• Clippers: 11,838 minutes
• Bucks: 10,872 minutes
• Celtics: 5,761 minutes
Our top 3 guys in playoff minutes are Smart, Brown, and Tatum lol. If by "overperform", you mean Smart turns into Harden, Brown into Westbrook, and Tatum into KD, then I think we can go deep into the playoffs haha.
