Default So what if we make the playoffs.

Does it really matter?

The only reason I was hoping to make the playoffs was to have our young players get a feel for it.

But some of our young players are hurt and knowing Zeke he won't play Frye and Balkman because we are "IN" the playoffs. The moron will say we have to use the vets because they have more experience.

I could just see Jefferies and Rose launching up threes.

So I feel that if we get in the playoffs we will be so embarrassed it will actually be bad for the teams psyche.

Curry will be man handled and go home and sulk.

Let's miss the playoffs and then next year the team knows why they missed it.

It's just the way I feel about it.

i dont agree at all. usually a team that loses and gets embarassed in the playoffs comes back bitter and doesnt want it to happen again. if this season ends with 35 wins and no playoffs the players are just going to say that they improved and be satisfied and go to the beach. if they get in the playoffs and lose they will have had a taste and want to get further. they have nothing to lose. not making the playoffs just gives the bulls a better draft pick and the curry trade worse. regardless of whether they make the playoffs or not they will get the same pick.

Normally I would agree but this team has been embarrassed all season long and never rises up, so I think they have a more fragile ego than a veteran team.

This is a work in progress and it's going to take time with these guys.

Once they get rid of the dead weight they will be much better.

There are too many cancers on this team.
