In response to melswitt's comment:
It sucks...they get into the playoffs our future is cooked...we'll be so mediocre for years it will kill off a portion of the fan base...The NBA, right now, is as bad as I can ever remember, and I've been watching and listening since 1960...diluted talent, no D, pitiful rebounding, no toughness to the point that any tough guy can strike apoplectic fear into an entire opponents lineup....
We desperately need to get into the lottery to improve...our talent level sucks, we have a mishmash of midget PF's, Centers with arms like a T-Rex who have no athletic abiility, or a total rookie, 1's and 2' either too small or without a complete set of skills...but we're all set for 3's , 'cept for one ancient warrior with a hideous contract and another with a serious inconsistency issue...the toughest guy on the team is a 1 who's coming off a serious injury and hasn't played this year
No, we can win a championship now and don't need the lottery....Oh yeah!
And my nose just grew.
We can get in the lottery without losing....
