I don't remember anyone saying he was an All-Star. There was one post expressing the thought that he could be an occasional selection. And this dude didn't watch all of 4 years of problematic defense, otherwise he'd probably be full of the "hype" himself. Grounded? Who amongst us hasn't been ground down to nothing at this point? I still think they need to know they have a sure-fire core in place, but damn, I'm hoping to see that by the time the trade deadline comes, one way or another, or else see some over-achievement that allows them until next summer. I expect to see a two-steps forward, one step back sort of season, but a lot more clarity. The possibility of any kind of clarity at this point excites me a great deal. Slam that as hype if you want, but it is not.
