The FO has to be happy with the play of the team since the RGay trade. The ball moves around on offense and they play with more cohesiveness. I don't think they're upset with that one bit.
OOPS LOL you guys are right I completely forgot that we were first in the Atlantic which has completely thus thrown off my question
I appreciate the sentiment, and feel the same way to a large degree, but there's got to be room for some perspective. As likeable as these guys are, they're nowhere near good enough for a deep playoff run, let alone a championship. A lot more change and growth are needed, whether this season or in the next couple.

If we win against the Knicks tomorrow I'm putting away my tank. I just don't see how we can do it now. Everyday the odds of getting the 3rd seed go up in comparison with the odds to get a top 6 pick.
Not that I want Masai to make a "win now" type trade, but if we aren't going to be in the bottom 3 of the East we'd better have the 3rd or 4th best record in the East (not just the 4th seed due to winning the division). I want homecourt advantage in the first round.

While a win tomorrow hampers efforts to get to the top of the lottery, the next 9 games softer are all vs. the east. January 15th.
And while the Raps won last night, so did Orlando, Utah, Sacramento, and Brooklyn.

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
Dose anyone think they might even of been surprised by the play with the trade. Maybe they were hoping for a tank themselves, but wow, we got some good talent a few young guys with potential, a nice vet to keep everyone calm, and oh shit were winning.
Maybe there looking at generating the buzz, with playoffs, it help the appeal of the franchise around the league if were doing it with young guys. And of course acquiring assets when ever and where ever we can. We are team will look alot like Denver, no superstar and team ball. Lots of good young talent.
I know a lot of people on here bang DD a lot and how get rid of him now, but he is a legit option on offense as long as there is another threat on the floor. He is struggling cause teams are now keying in on him, he plays well but after the bad game the other night the Ross DD thread popped up. He is a piece I hope we keep long term.
Everyone needs to try and stop analyzing MU. I know were fans and all, but the constant talk of tank, is driving our TEAM to new and better ball. They are obviously responding to the all the talk, wether we like to see it or not. It's the information age, and bet some of them read this stuff and bring it back to the fellas providing fire.
They responded again last night after a terrible sloppy first half.
Lowry is the linchpin of this team, so as long as he's on this team, the team's performance isn't going to go south. Once Lowry is gone, this team should be able to sneak into a top 7 position and grab a guy like Exum or LaVine.
I have hopes that Masai will pull something off on draft day.
I just hope now the MU has decided he wants to NO tank and actually compete, he does not trade away our picks of future to get assets for now.
