The Atlantic has become one of the hotly contested conferences in the league. We offer nothing but money because of the position BC has put us in by over valuing assets such as Bargs
& Josie, which has put the team at a stand still. We are virtually pinned down. Our development is purely base on youth and under valued role player s like JJ. So it is going to be a long road.
Because of this it really isn't to essential that we keep BC, because he has tied his own hands. There isn't much he can do or any one else for that matter.
This off season presents some pretty great opportunities to up grade our coaching staff. You say this team believes it can compete, which I agree with, but I do believe Traino has hindered this team with a lack of preparation and his inability to instill execution and efficiency has nothing to injuries. He has even at 100% made terrible rotations and has left out key assets out of the game plan ie. Klieza.
3yrs? Yeah right! I'd be willing to bet quite a bit of money that they'll at least challenge next season for the playoffs and make the playoffs the season after that.
