of course you do. you stay the course and stick to the plan... and the plan is to build something sustainable over 10-15+ years, not some win now agenda, regardless of how quickly we made the playoffs

The bill are coming due in the form of Russell's deal this off season and Caris next.


Irrelevant. we have max room even giving russell the max. we have tons of money to spend. they wont waste it on size they will use it on a small board PF who is an all-star/all-star calibur player to upgrade from dudley/RHJ/Carroll.

We can't come back next season and win 42 games, have same negatives and be like "well...thats fine, were still ahead 1 year"


of course we can. this isnt a knee-jerk billy king win now at all costs era. Marks is trying to build something long term

No, we're ahead of projection this season.


exactly, if things are going well and your plan has yielded great results you dont stray from what has worked so well

This is like the Wolves. They made the playoffs last season, lock up their core.

And this season, they were a relative mess in a tough west.

Yet, universally their season is viewed as a disappointment.


our situation couldnt be less like the wolves.... whose coach and GM are on 2 different pages... one wants to win now the ohter build slow... they spent big money on butler to win now only to have to trade him. their young guys dont work hard and the cultrue their is awful. does that sound like the nets to you?

This team can't step back next season and it be viewed as natural progression simply because two years ago they thought we were three years away.


of course they can. we are a team of 20-25 year olds, there is no rush. at least not for the smart people in charge

You can say all of that but this team would be universally viewed as a disappointment if we don't make the playoffs next season (barring some cataclysmic injury scenario).

NBA is year to year. You don't put down a 5 year plan and cement it expecting never to change it.

I think Sean and Kenny have done a great job that losing out on FA this off season doesn't blow up our plans, but make no mistake. Expectations are being raised.

That's what winning does.

of course it would not be seen as a disappointment. that is abusurd. only highly emotional fans who nee dinstant gratification who subscribe to the billy king era would view it as a disappoinment

if something is working at an elite level, you dont change it and do something 100% outside your philosiphy. you stick with the plan thats been working at an elite level

Not unless someone had a devestating career altering injury. if we went say 30-52 id be fine with it as long as we stuck with the plan. continues year over year growth is great but i dont mind a minor setback. im looking at this like marks, as a 10-15 year outook

30 wins is a -12 year over year. That's not exactly that minor a setback, especially when we've been raving about the +14 this season.

It's not even the W/L numbers.

Without significant injuries, this team only getting 30 wins means Russell, Caris, Spencer, Allen (any combination of them) had bad years...and that's not what you want when you're developing a young core.

It would even be worse if it was Russell who had the done year, after getting his extension.
