No we haven't given up. Last year we didn't have enough scorers, the year before that they were both hurt, and you already know the issue for this year. If they can both stay healthy, we have a good shot at going far in the playoffs next year. Plus Adelman is trying to get some more people that can help this team and someone else who can create their own shot.
I at least want to see another full year of these two together on the court at the same time. They've only been healthy together for the majority of the season for one year. That was the year we took Dallas to 7 games, also the first year of the Yao and T-Mac era.
our team has never had a good offensive AND defensive system goin into a season w/ most of our roster already set. in all 4 seasons tmac been here the teams gone thru roster changes, critical injuries, and now a new coach. phx, da, sa, det, all have their teams set (or when they were on the top). weve been a top 10 team 3/4 years macs been here so...other than injuries we dont have that much to be worried about next season. (and roster changes)
