It's really starting to hit me: "We'll probably MISS the playoffs". Wow. I just can't believe this is happening. Things were already looking horribad for us and now THIS happens. Our THREE BEST BIGS are injured, and being 6 games below .500 is extremely plausible.
I don't think many will point out to injuries if/when we miss the playoffs. And they shouldn't. Despite our TERRIBLE luck, health is simply not enough of an excuse. This team was meant to do great things, and failed (so far) miserably. Our failure was partially caused by injuries, but the truth is most of it has to do with actual mediocre basketball performance. Issues have crept out from all over the place, in various forms.
This could end up being one of the most embarrassing seasons in the history of sports. The most expensive roster, 4 potential HOF players, a former all-star and defensive player of the year, a couple of valuable bench guys, and we are out of the playoff picture (as it stands).
I just can't believe this is where we're at.
Hopefully a miracle happens and somehow we find ways to win games, our guys get healthy, we finally gel and all of the sudden become something similar to what was expected from us since the beginning.
But I just don't see it.
