Alright, this may get a lot of scrutiny, but this is a friendly space; I am just brainstorming.  When I saw the Celtics take on the Knicks this past Saturday, early on, they reminded me of the Celtics of last season.  The starting lineup was Irving-Brown-Tatum-Horford-Baynes, and they were up 26-10.  Obviously the game ended a bit closer (103-101), but it made me think of something discussed during the offseason: should Gordon Hayward come off the bench?

Young studs Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have played remarkably, filling in the role created by the injury of wing Gordon Hayward, and Al Horford and Kyrie Irving were All-Stars.  Injuries aside (and there have been many), the core at hand has many gleefully looking towards the future.

But is there one more move in store?
