Since there are no grades for last nights wonderful game (why bother, right?), I'll post here in the rarest of rare things, a game the team won. This is one of the worst teams, right now, on paper, in NBA history folks. Vlade has assembled of team of absolutely nothing. It's stunning to watch. How could this even happen? No hope, no future, the best player is zach flipping randolph at 36 playing less than 24 mpg. I won't get into the numbers but this is BAD. Really bad. the numbers say this team should be 2-14. That's a 10 win pace. 10! The summer optimism of the NBA pundits was utterly absurd. Especially after these kids got worked over by low level d league talent this summer. This team is worse on paper than the worst intentionally bad sixers teams of recent vintage. Really. Dig into the numbers. Yes, it's a small sample size. and that 46 point loss to the very terrible hawks skews things, but good golly everyone, this isn't even rock bottom. wait till we win 18 next year and have no pick. Vlade has set this team back a decade or more. At the moment by almost any measure, this team is overachieving in the win column. If Joerger gets this team over 20 wins he should be coach of the year. Historically bad folks. This is why many of us left immediately post Boogie. It was, and is, hopeless, and will be for at least 4-7 seasons. This is what you people wanted, huh? Enjoy. Is everyone smiling?
