I used to be like you, with blind optimistic going into every season, but like many other fans on this board, we've gone through too many failed seasons with the same things happening every season to keep us in the cellar.

This year its a lot easier to see we're going to be bad because we're constructed to be that way. Yes, we have some good players in the starting lineup, but there's too many questions with them in terms of injury, fit, and chemistry.

Plus our biggest weakness besides overall talent, which is our bench, is going to be bottom 5 in the NBA next year. If you just keep your outlook simple in looking at this team next season, we have a mediocre starting 5 with a horrible bench. We're not going to be good. Take any of our starters out and we're even more screwed, and theres no way all of our starters will play 76+ games together.

Which is why we should all be on the pro tank bandwagon. Embrace it. Love it. We're going to get a really good prospect next June.

this team has very little margin for error. To be a .500 team pretty much everything has to go right and there has to be no major injuries to our main players. And even then, with the reffing and Casey's strange ass rotations it would be shocking to me if we got more then 35-37 wins.

1- health
2- luck
3- casey smartens up

I don't see us having much success in those three categories.

one thing im not excited for is caseys rotations.

I get you BDL, but you have to be optimistic as a fan, if you're not, then why be a fan? I just dont want a 10-12th pick, i rather make 8th seed and get a 16th pick and get some experience for our young guys in the playoffs . I don't see us losing more than 45 games unless ujiri trades rudy and lowry
