Somewhere out there Kenny Smith is having a chuckle.
disheartening and disgusted sum up the last two games
LOL! I was just looking at the "Show results" thing on the poll. Only 3 people voted 0%? C'mon guys..
Congrats to .40, ebrian, and Nilanka!
You guys nailed it!
To be fully optimistic though, we haven't official been knocked out. Teams during this time usually melt down or heat up, and 24 games left to play. (Although, I'd rather see Toronto start playing for development)
The fun is about to begin because the minute they are mathematically eliminated, good times will ensue.
For one thing, JV and Ross will start getting more minutes. This mean less minutes for guys like Bargnani and Anderson, which also equates to winning more games. I'm sorry to anyone who likes the latter two players, but facts are facts -- we will win more games without Bargnani and Anderson on the floor.
I'm excited about seeing the young guys get more minutes, even if it means no playoffs.
They can not make the playoffs this season maybe next year if the players like Gay and Bargnani not injury.
Good luck next seasons!!!
I just went back to check some of my old posts (at another site), and I found that at the 4-14 mark I predicted us to win 20 games total this season. That was before the Gay trade obviously.
However.. sitting at 23 wins, I do not feel like they have exceeded my expectations.
Looking at the Bucks limp in to the playoffs (37-41, 3-7 last 10), 40 wins would have likely assured a playoff spot - even 38 would have done it had the Raps even split with Milwaukee. With four games left the Bucks play Atlanta, Charlotte, Denver, and OKC.
Disappointing because it was attainable.
And not even to say it could have been better ... it SHOULD have been better.
I think next year, anything but the Playoffs will be a HUGE let down.
Which is at least a nice feeling to have. Been a while since we've been able to say that.
I'd say this season was already a huge letdown.
we toronto'd another season. yay
