We're not getting a top tier free agent. This team has to draft or get wildly lucky like they did with Oladipo to have top talent on the team. There's other way's to get deeper, but they're not going to get more top heavy with star power than they are now. So even though the glass is half full take is that they're headed in the right direction, the flip is that this is the type of season we can expect for a few more years, filling in the gaps here an there with guys, staying relevant, maybe winning a series next year as long as we don't have to deal with LeBron (my LeBron fatigue is fatigued. I can't wait for him to get bounced-barf city).They'll be a bit better next year, but it might not even show up in the record.
I'd love to see someone's battle plan to make this team a legit contender, not just a team that can be entertaining for stretches.
