    If only we won 1/3 of the games we lost in the last 2 mins last year, we where playoff bound
    Having RG for a full year from the start, with our present roster, our team is playoff bound----of course baring any injuries

    +1.
    Good. Lets see what this squad does for the first 30-40 games and we can reassess at the trade deadline.

    I feel like they should still be looking for a legit backup PG. who can we get for 2 mil
    Entourage: Harvey - "E (BC) was right, there's genius in this (Bargnani)"
    Ari - "You wanna buy it?"
    Harvey - "I do, for a dollar"

    No, more the anti-tank brigade deciding that Masai publicly saying what he has to say means anything at all. He also called Bargnani a fine athlete who just needed a change of scenery, you know.

    I wonder at what point next season MU would consider it a lost season?

    If the team goes 5-15 in their first 20 should he rebuild? What about 10-10? Or 12-8?

    There is a fine line about being bad, mediocre and good. At what point does he cross the line without falling into the 7-11 trap?
    Still too early to say. Depends if we get a brutal early schedule or not, how our early matchups against the other contending teams fall, et cetera.

    Every time I read this "34 win team" thing, I do a big *head shake*. That's what happened last year, not where the team sits right now. There are so many reasons why this should be a better team, and different than the one that struggled through last year, that I can't imagine people ignoring them.

    I'm not going to attempt to point them all out, but one of the big things tankers speak of is the need to develop young players, and have them grow together. There's development, and growth to be expected all over this team, and leaving it exactly as is (pending moves by Ujiri) makes it not the same team it was last year. Not comparing teams or specific talents, but as an example of what I speak of, in KDs 2nd year and Westbrook's 1st, OKC was a 23 win team. Were they a 23 win team the following year? No, they won 50 games.

    Do I suggest the Raps can make a similar leap? No, I'm saying the team coming into next season is not the team that started last season, for many reasons, including the development of our young players.
    Well said
