Do you ever look at a team and wonder ... What if? It's sort of a silly exercise, because in addition to the what-ifs we can think of, there are an infinite number of others that are beyond our ability to conceive, thus picking particular what-ifs is highly selective and (at best) pseudo-analytical. Still, it's fun (for at least one of us), so I hope you'll indulge me for a few moments of our valuable time.
