Can we make this the official post-loss doublespeak thread?

I'll go first:

Bargnani going down early really hurt us, he's our guy defensively. He really makes it tough for Aldridge.

How many amnesty provisions can we trade for because I can't decide on just one player!

I'm just glad the losing culture has changed.

It just feels so good to finally be an up and coming team again.

I'm just glad that we're defending the perimeter a LOT better now. Holding a team to 0/20 from behind the arc speaks volumes for this team's defensive improvement.

It's better that they just missed all those three point shots so that we didn't have to bother running out to defend them this time.

The best thing about this team is the depth. This is the deepest team we've had in years. I mean, two starters go down and you're talking no drop-off. None whatsoever.

Amir's mouthpiece toss at the ref shows his accuracy is improving.

What I'm worried about is that Ross and JV are going to be too good.

"Team manages to hold opponent to zero 3pt field goals made on twenty attempts and still loses by 18

Going into the record books baby!

When you have guys like Amir out there, guys who have so much emotion invested into the game, its hard to not be a fan of a team like that.

It's better to have won and lost than it is to have ever won again.

What I like best about tanking is that it's easy for a team to flick the switch to go to not tanking.

Blazers showed grit beating one of the top teams in the league.
