    Absolutely. The players on this team are too talented and too competitive for them not to be thinking they can make the playoffs and maybe even win a round. Harden leaving is a blessing for the coaches too. It gives them a lot more freedom to shape the way this team is going to be play on both ends.

    This forum is at its most fun when the team is at the status we have today: Completely unknown.

    I started the game having a look at the top 5 picks candidates, since our tank would have to go all the way. And finished looking at potential matchup seedings.

    we are all delusional

    They can absolutely make the playoff, i hope they don't though, that would be a bad decision for the franchise going forward since with this core you can't win anything, building around it is the recipe for 7/8 years of mediocrity.

    Didn't we go on an incredible run when Tracy quit and make it to the 2nd round for the first time in a generation?

    The Rockets are too talented and tanking makes no sense. OKC owns our pick. The best thing to do is try to make the playoffs. They'll probably end up as a 7/8 seed.

    Hehe, OKC 2021. Tough out in the first round and fire sale next year.

    We have to have a direction. We can't be half azzing on tanking.

    I applaud wishful thinking... But Spurs are a matchup made in heaven for this squad... Isolation teams with good shooting and teams with length will kill us.... But I like what we doing thus far..

    I won’t go that far but we can kiss that top 4 pick goodbye.
