    we have 2 superstars, 3 role players, and the rest are unproven in the nba. I'm not drinking the cool-aid about us not getting worse since last year. we did. and that's ok because we rolled the dice and crapped out. it happens. but we shouldn't lie to ourselves just to be disappointed later.

    I say 14-6 with McHale and 18-2 if we had at least an average coach. I think our roster is not the problem. I kind of like it to be honest.

    I completely agree with you but the issue is depth. It's not that asik and lin were THAT great. It's the inexperience of the players that are going to replace them that worries me. Nobody is writing this team off when they are predicting 49 wins. But you can't give me concrete reasons why the bench will be adequate because some of those guys haven't even played significant minutes on an NBA team

    lol


    If the newbie players are inconsistent then we have at least what we had last year. As a starting unit we are the same team but a tad more defensive.

    Yea they were inconsistent but they did come through occasionally. The replacements could just flat out suck period.... not saying I think they will I'm just saying theres reason for legit concern

    Not really. The bench sucked the last two years. If they suck again as expected then we are in the same place. At least we have gotten rid of the suck players to try and see if we can improve. We have unknowns now where we had knowns before. Why stick with what doesn't work?

    13-7

    I see us dropping a few winnable ones and winning one or two we probably shouldn't have. Beginning of season, lots of new faces on the bench, gonna be a few growing pains, but overall I think H&H work well together and we come out of that stretch with a good record. A 65% clip is nothing to sneeze at.

    I think 19-1 and our only loss is to the LA Clippers.

    i can see us stumbling out to a 12-8...

    smh

    the refs sway everything, and they'll easily cost us a few games.

    whatsoever, the first game got to lose though
    Honestly i am a huge rox fan for more than 10 years. BUT, seeing how badly what Lin was treated in last season, I really don’t want to wish Harden/Howard good luck.

    GOD DAMN IT. There is no really perfection in the world.
