Either the truth, or wishful thinking.
« on: January 22, 2013, 10:54:09 PM »
It's not that bad. All we need todo is make the playoffs, which we clearly will.
Not playing well in the regular season is a veteran move by Doc, KG, Pierce, Terry, but if they say they're playing badly to save energy for the playoffs, Stern will do something.
 
It's clear we can still win the championship... Do you realistically think Doc changed his mind from so upset the other day to nonchalant today? It's a calculated move and everyone is falling for it.... Which is what Danny and the team want.

Hey man, more power to you.

If it makes it easier for you to believe that the team is just playing possum to take the league by storm come playoff time, then you do what you need to do to get through this stretch of crappy play.

I don't mean for this to come off quite so condescending.

I appreciate the desire to find a silver lining and think this team can make another deep run.  They've surprised us before.  But it really feels different this time.

But hey, I hope you're right.

This is KG and PP last hurrah. They talked to Doc and Danny on the offseason telling them that we will just be an 8th seed and clobber those who oppose us in the Playoffs and we will win Banner 18. Lets not let the other teams see our gameplan and pretend that we lose to teams.

God I wish this was their plan.

Yeah great idea.. Lets just suck enough to hopefully make the playoffs and then IF we make the playoffs we just flip that switch.. This isn't two-three years ago. I belived in those teams, that they could turn it on.. Not this one not this year. We need some help if we plan on doing that.

If we miss the playoffs, you'll all get mysterious donations of one million dollars each. Not happening.

I don't think we will miss the playoffs but we are flirting with that chance right now.

Y'all forgot the past, eh? I guess no one wants to remember the feeling of hopelessness
