Amir Johnson missed 12 games and was pretty much playing through pain all season.
So basically all of our best players other than Derozan were ravaged by serious injuries. Had all of them been moderately healthy, we could've definitely won 38 games. But the cards just didn't fall correctly for us this year.
Very well could be true, but I much rather have a high draft pick than get destroyed by Chicago in the first round.
