I think it further underlines how special it was to have Carter and Bosh here. These sorts of chances don't come all the time and some times fans take the teams success for granted.
This is a difficult league. Players have their windows. Maybe this dificulty will allow us to cherish the success next time it comes around.
The Lakers are being used as the example, but Cleveland has been winning better picks than us, their rebuild should be that much further ahead. They are not anchored by a 3pt shooting center, yet they are not much better than us.
uuhhh the lakers have won almost 20 championships? how can you even compare? for the laker's it a trade here, a new coach there, you win a few and you lose a few but you'll be back up at the top soon...
We're so desperate for something positive to happen we actually have a thread trying to justify ED as a top 10 PF in this league just because he's played really well for 10 games.
