Maybe once the dust has settled we’ll look at this season in the same light as the 1997-98 campaign when the team finished 16-66, got a high pick, and found themselves Vince Carter to change the fortunes of the franchise, however briefly.
JV is a project with upside, not a focal piece. MU is doing important things right now, but his hires will be as important as firing the old guard like Kelly. We still have to sort out a long-term coach and handle the roster issues mentioned above. I think Lowry IS the backup guard, though.
