look around at all your rebuilding franchises, and tell me how long you think they've been rebuilding for? The reality is that it is usually longer than you think.... and in the NBA, how many teams have actually won the title over the last 30 years?
Everybody wants to make it sound like it's a linear amd absolute progression when it in fact is anything but.
