Some things are simply irreplaceable. Some NBA players are irreplaceable to their teams.
Some people are, too. That’s deeply true on a personal level. It’s also true on a professional level.
Yet, sometimes, their teams lose them anyway. If they don’t replace them, they could be in trouble.
For example, the Miami Heat lost P.J. Tucker this summer. They still haven’t replaced them. In 2022-23, they’re dealing with the consequences.
This team has underperformed so far this season.
Could they replace Tucker with Bojan Bogdanovic of the Detroit Pistons?
