I respect your opinion Q ... but I disagree...

I disagree only in that its too early to tell for sure.

The team may have zero direction but we wont know till November.

MU will imprint a "direction". DC with free reign will obviously focus on a "d first identity" and the evidence so far seem to suggest they can play better D with gay in the line up ala the last 20 games.

Even this team will have a direction in terms of what are the peices we need to grow and THEN what pieces are here short term long term. Kyle Lowry for example and his performance in a contract year.

I project this team a a d first 500 team barely making the playoffs in the east ; challenged to score a 100 points always. Most wins will be 79 - 78 affairs.

The direction and identity will come from that.
