nah, we're not as good as we think we are just yet.
i wouldn't be suprised if we got close to the 8th seed, but fell short at the end. a .500 team this season should be our goal... and if you think that's shooting low, remember we only won 27 games last season... so that'd be an improvement of 14 wins, which would be quite a feat.
i think this season we'll fall short, but it will make our youth hungrier when they realize how close they are.
BUT, after this upcoming season, i expect to make the playoffs with high seeds for the next 8 years.
