Exactly. The major reason this is so frustrating is because they sold this as a potential playoff team when we're clearly still far away from that goal. It's especially frustrating because on paper they did seem good enough (I don't think anyone expected Bargnani
to be an all-star, but I think even fewer people expected a career low year for him in virtually every category) and that brought out a lot of optimism (shit, I was so pumped I got tix to six of the best games of the year in anticipation). The mix of those two elements became a deadly combination when none of it panned out.
The farther expectations are from reality, the more dissonance it will create and therefore, the more anxiety.
