Re: Why watch this coming season?

I sympathize with you. Usually if your team stinks you can kind of hang your hat on a fun young prospect and follow his developement to take your mind off the losing. Like we all did with PP, or Big al, even Gerald Green. (Admit it, when we first got him your imaginations ran wild)
But this team doesn't really have a prospect that is compelling to watch!
Sully, I guess would be interesting to follow to see if he can be better after his back surgery. He still doesn't have a particularly enjoyable style of play to behold. But who else???
Olynyk? BORING! It isn't interesting to watch a big man shoot jumpers and get his shots around the basket thrown into the stands cuz his arms are about as long as a fifth graders. He may be good but his game is ugly.
Bradley? Personally I'm already sick of watching his yo-yo confidence. How is it going to be without his binky there in Doc.
Green? Yeah, but the guy is as infuriating as he is fun to watch. And if he plays too well they might win! Can't have that.
Humphries? PUKE! Hopefully that J@ck@ss is gone before he ever dons a uni!
Crash? Used up. If they can't unload his franchise killing contract we will have a very expensive bench player who obviously isn't part of the future.
Brooks? Maybe. He's never seen a shot he didn't like. But his big knock since coming into the league is that if he is not THE focal point he gets VERY disinterested. He needs the ball in his hands to be even remotely effective, which may happen if/when Rondo is gone.
Crawford? See "Brooks" above.
Iverson, Lee, Randolph, White??? Who, lame, who and who?
So unless DA can snag at least one young guy with a little electricity in his game, a glimmer of potential, than not only are we going to watch a losing team, but probably one of the ugliest teams ever assembled.
