    Well we probably were out after the dallas game, but this was the official game. This might have been one of the biggest choke jobs in the history of sports. Like Red Sox and Braves last year. If we had just won just 2 of those games we would be in the playoffs.

    Good. I'm glad I don't have to pay for worthless playoff tickets.

    I am actually relieved though embarrased and very angry the way we didn't make the playoffs. I hope CHOKING TANK CITY is in the newspapers after the season and they call for McHale's head. It's a disgrace to sports with what McHale pulled. Lowry can also f off and take his AB behaviour somewhere else.

    I'm officially out of this team if they don't make changes next year. Either begin rebuilding or have a contender built by next year. This is more than I can handle.

    Yeah, tell me something new. What's old is new again. Right back where they started.

    I'm just glad they decided to choke not instead of on national tv in the playoffs.

    Breath of fresh air...after breathing in the ****tyness of their last 7 games. Worst way to end the season really. 5th seed to 10th seed in a week and a half.

    I hope we have a team direction at the end of the draft. I can't take much more of this mediocrity with no future hope

    More things change? More they stay the same. Strengthening the roster is not enough. It needs a solid rebuild effort. Maybe going after guys like Joe Smith, Eric Gordon, Granger, and other guys who are realistically attainable. Move up in the draft because that is the most realistic scenario to take if they give up enough to do it. They have to be ready to pull the trigger even if it means complete rebuild.

    Biggest collapse in the history of the team. More like Choke City rather than Clutch city. I am so pissed off right now.

    Almost a sense of relief. We can all finally move on, and de-stress. I think we all need a vacation to Vegas to blow off some steam.

    We had a 95% chance to make the playoffs.

    How much more mediocrity before Les finally gets it and lets Morey scrap the whole thing? They could already be there if he wasn't stubbornly believing that the fans wouldn't understand a couple of really stinky seasons.

    Has anyone in the media actually interviewed him and nailed him down on why he won't let the team stink in order to shine and why he prefers being mediocre to truly rebuilding greatness?
