I'm judging this team by post-trade numbers - 25-13, influenced by strength of schedule, where I think we land in a league average(ish) level.
So, I'm quite happy about this year so far. A big thing I'll be looking for this summer is improvement in JV and Ross's games. JV's been disappointing of late, which I guess was to be expected at some point.
Also, the Pacers and the Heat are two of the biggest favorites to win the whole league this year, and I'm not sure that their models are THAT sustainable. So if we can keep up our level of play for the next few years and actually improve, I'm not sure that an eventual finals appearance is such a long shot.
