A playoff team if they're extremely lucky and what more? A miracle? Us taking down OKC, San Antonio, or whomever else may be there? Or what if we go all out and get the 9th or 10th spot, for what? Worst position possible seemingly.
Listen, I was all about this team winning as much as it could going into the season, actually had some sense of hope, but the reality is this team has been decimated by injuries, no time to gel or chemistry to come together with the full team all online including Kobe especially, who we know it takes the biggest adjustment for everyone to get used to playing with.
Time and circumstances just aren't on our side & even more, why force & make some of our players, especially Kobe & Nash & some of the already injured players play even harder & kill themselves just to give us a chance for what? For nothing ultimately and if anything, they'll only hurt themselves more potentially re-injuring even worse.
You might think this is all negative & bad, especially from a fan to feel this way & think this way, but it is the harsh reality we are in and we must not be in denial.
Only thing i'd add to a post i now thoroughly agree with...is our entire roster is still playing for future contracts. They want to be out there showing their value but i also think they're playing to get MDA fired before season ends.
Praying for 1. Kobe's Health (looks pretty good so far), 2. High Draft Pick (Randle...injured game #1.*sigh*) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of, Davis, nice upside!), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron!...but the jury is out)
