It is just tiring not learning from it and continuing on making the same mistakes and relying on pure luck to get us a top pick by giving ourselves a lesser chance at one. We have to put in some work for it, we can't just rely solely and heavily on just lotto luck like how we got Penny, that was an outlier.
It is what it is if we win games the right way, but if we are relying on 30 year old for the big plays and big shots, that is not the right way. That is just repeating the same mistakes that made us mediocre and might once again happen unless we get extremely lucky on the lottery again as in the 90's.
we need our batman....when we had vuc and company all we had was some rotation players, nice complimentary players(AG+Evan+Ross) and a robin(Vuc) but no batman.....my fear is history repeating itself, this team now has a few nice complimentary players but that's it at this point....we will see going forward....
I don't even think Vuc was a Robin. He should have been playing the role that Brook Lopez is playing in Mil. But you are absolutely correct and I have been saying this for years since Dwight left the magic that the magic have always been a team full of good role players but no stars to build around. So it's absolutely necessary that magic hit on the draft picks and find these stars.
