    This is a good thing given how stacked the 2023 draft is

    Green and Sengun are walking highlight factories.

    KPJ / KMJ make their share of clips as well... Jabari will be your favorite player's favorite player type dude. And Tate's hustle will never stop being enjoyable to watch.

    Color me in the "can't wait to watch every night" type camp of delusion.

    Can't wait.. I'm overly optimistic that we'll win 45 games this year barring injury... Gotta be a method to this Silas madness..

    Talkin trash for no reason seems to be a thing these days for sure.

    Like talkin ish because someone is excited about the team just as much as the last time they were "competitive".

    :rolleyes:

    Called being a fan.

    Trying to control what others are excited about.

    LMAO

    I am very excited as well. I love the vision that Stone has for this team moving forward. I foresee the kids treading water through 3 quarters most nights before succumbing to more veteran squads at winning time in the 4th. I think they'll improve from worst record in the league status but still see them as a bottom 5 or 7 team in the W-L column. No matter, they need time to cook anyway and adding another lottery pick never hurt a rebuild. Use this season to establish a starting lineup of KPJ-Green-Eason-Smith-Sengun. That lineup will need some time but it is fire.

    It's corny af to be giddy like a schoolgirl over a team with the worst record 2 seasons running. Could you imagine anyone saying this stuff in real life and not getting clowned for it?

    It just depends on if you are capable of analyzing a situation and seeing the probable future outcomes or not.

    If your cognitive ability ends at the last two years were bad thus bad, I could see how you might have that perspective. However, if you were capable of recognizing that a bright future is on the horizon, it might be something that would get you excited.

    The Golden State Warriors were a 23 win team in 2012....but it's probable that some of their fans recognized that they had a bright future and were excited anyway.

    The team can come together all it wants, it won’t result in any semblance of great

    Nothing special will come from
    This roster

    Sometimes the truth hurts, but it’s the truth

    let’s see. Two top 3 picks. Two steals of the draft and potentially a 20/7/6 two way combo guard. No way that could turn into anything good. What a pessimist you are.

    What's funny AF is some dork acting like an immature insecure schoolboy who is uncomfortable with others being excited about the team.

    You say pessimist, I say realist.
