    Default Conflicting Feelings

    I was watching the Rap's game and I hated that they were losing. It sucks to watch, then the thought comes that they need to get a good pick in the draft so losing is okay. It doesn't make the loss easier, but at least it's something. Am I the only one feeling this or is this shared mutually?

    I'm happy with the loss today because of the great games by DD and Easy Ed. I def didn't want two wins against a team we're tied with, but I'll take the split!

    Bonner and the Spurs KILLED Miami. I don't know what Charles Barkley was saying when he said that the Spurs weren't for real. What a tool

    He's thinking of Dallas and LA. Anyone can guard the heat with no one below the elbow;they are the worst of the elite division right now and basically go two deep on offense.

    To answer the original question, losing is for losers and breeds losing losers. I would also like to point out that we are starting four first round picks with two more off the bench. The present is just as important to their development as adding another possible piece. If they pick-up Perry Jones or Sullinger or Irving or Barnes doesn't really matter. Whoever we get may or may not contribute long or short term;whoever is picked 14th may be better than whoever is picked fourth (especially if it's Fredette, either way).

    Bottom line for me, is draft shmaft, let's lace 'em up and see what we've got now.

    The good thing is with the state of the team right now (injuries, young/inexperienced players, lack of depth/talent) they can play balls out and still compete for a top 3 pick.
