Complete and total agreement, whats so great about ZBO and Hil beating a Booker-less Suns team? This Franchise is lost, bipolar, directionless and cannot commit to a long term strategy. Is everyone in that building just worried about appeasing Vivek on a day to day basis? This year reeks of the PDA era. No Plan at all and everyone on egg shells. That playoff promise by Vlade was the first sign of disaster for me, no way could we make the playoffs less than 2.5 seasons after trading Demarcus, that was a huge sign of incompetence right there. Vlade put himself on the clock with that dumb statement and if this continues he won't be able to deliver. I wonder if that was something he promised Vivek as well when he asked to trade DMC. Even the most optimistic of fans could see that there was not enough talent on the roster to even think about the playoffs for a while. Yet Vlade might have thought so?? Yikes. I really would not doubt that these guys thought ZBO/Hill Production minus DMC's complaining would equal playoffs this year. SMH Grant Napear syndrome. So ZBO leads us to a few extra wins this year, we get the 6-7-8 pick again and miss out on the cornerstones AGAIN. I know everyone is tired of losing for the last 12 years but this is not the correct way to be approaching this year. Absolutely zero excitement unless a young guy like Bogie, Frank etc FORCES there way into playing time. Even when a young guy makes a play for himself it feels like it is despite Joergers system, not because of it. Let these guys run out there and make mistakes so they can learn in a lost year, they made the NBA they have already EARNED the right to play on a team like this. They will be better off for years to come if you let them experience court time, you DO NOT learn more from just watching. If KD, Klay and Steph were in front of them then yes make them "EARN" it but why do they have to "EARN" playing time over freakin ZBO, Hill and Temple. All signs point to Vlade and Joerger being put on a short playoff clock by Vivek as a condition of the DMC trade, so ultimately this failure will fall on Vivek unless we succeed out of blind luck.
