If we don't make the playoffs than this is the definition of a wasted season: barely any player development besides Val, one of Lowry's two years gone, no pick. And even if we're a good enough team to go .500 the rest of the way, we still won't make the playoffs.
I'm upset at the slow start because they knew how hard the schedule was early on and how important that made the winnable games in the first fifth of the season. The way Casey's rotation started off is not excusable because we had a whole preseason to define roles/lineups and we were even without Lowry for part of it so it's not as though we didn't know what to do without him.
Worst of all is people don't seem to be realizing that if we do fail to make the playoffs, most of, if not all, the changes this 'minority' of panic-button pushers are hoping for now will simply happen at the end of what will have been a wasted season.
I'd rather see a new GM, coach, players to replace Jose/Bargs/Ed/Ross/Amir, etc. starting now so maybe next season we can come in with the playoffs looking like a lock.
