Boston's Calculated Rebuild Is Now Irrelevant

Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

The Boston Celtics have been heavily praised over the past few years for their smart and calculated rebuild, all designed by GM Danny Ainge. Unfortunately, the loss of Gordon Hayward to a gruesome leg injury on Tuesday night has changed Boston's narrative dramatically.

While the Celtics have lost much of their firepower to trade or injury, the Cavaliers look completely rejuvenated with their new-look lineup. They may have lost a super star in Kyrie Irving, but they are a deeper and better team than they were before. 

The Celtics face a tough road ahead and will have to lean on young playmakers Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum if they want to fulfill their potential of being an Eastern Conference powerhouse. The Cavaliers, however, will have a smoother path to another NBA Finals appearance due to their newfound flexibility on their roster.
