Naturally, we didn’t and we ended up with Grimes, who Thibodeau refuses to play.
We are relying on a veteran roster while we have no superstar or future superstar (sorry RJ) to develop. We are in no man’s land as a franchise and have always been - including last year. I don’t understand what we’re doing and how it was ever a good idea to think this roster was the way to go. We’re not even close to anything. We’re barely an 8th seed with no real future. We have some nice young pieces - Obi, Quickley, RJ - and some unknowns like Grimes and McBride who will never see the light of day with Thibs. There’s no strong foundation here as it currently stands.
Why do you have to be butthurt over an 8-7 start? Were you here when they started 4-11 with a clueless coach?
I was hoping they'd go 4-78 personally. Instead we won 21 games and got the 8th pick and have Obi Toppin instead of LeMelo Ball.
Now we are the Steve Clifford Bobcats or the Steve Clifford Magic. Utterly useless barely treadmill joke franchise with no future.
