How depressing it is to contemplate the upcoming season. Reading all the rumors and articles about what other eastern conference teams are doing to improve their rosters and the best players are signing with the other teams and what, pray tell, is the Cats FO doing??????????????????? And I was so excited about the coming season until I realized that we're still going to have a group of some of the least talented players in the league. Sigh. Just let me wallow in disappointment for a while.
It's not that our players aren't talented, we just can't compete night in and night out with superstar players like Garnett/Allen/Pierce, Bosh, James, Wade, and Howard.
True, Timmeh. I didn't mean that our guys aren't talented, I just meant relative to those players whom you mention. The guys we'll be playing against night after night. Still it's possible that we could have a .500 season and that would be a milestone and would make lots of folks happy. And I think that we can still make it into the playoffs.
I don't mean to be a bummer but I just needed to express my concerns.
How are things going? Are you involved in the military aspects of the school like preparing to go into military service or just the educational opportunities? Are you involved in sports? I've been thinking about you knowing that your presence on this forum would probably be limited this term.
Is there really any reason, realistically, to think that we won't be #5 in the Southeast Division this coming season? At the end of last season it seemed possible that the Cats would make the playoffs this season. Or is it too early in the year to even think about this?
I think it'll be the same scenario as last season, just bigger. I think the Eastern Conference will be very balanced this year, and, barring major injuries to any teams better players, I think it won't be until mid-March before we start seeing teams becoming definitively eliminated from playoff contention.
