Our back up PG play last year was terrible (MCW? Stone?). Parker has added some depth there, as has Graham.
Our bench lacked depth last year. We have greater depth this year.
Our rookie was a mess last year (still is this year). Our rookies both contribute this year.
Our starting center was a ball hogging mess last year. We have added depth and a full offseason and season of Willy this year.
Bacon wasn't ready last year but is impacting this year.
Sure, our core is the same (Kemba, Bats, Lamb, Marv, Cody) but I don't see this as basically the same group as last year at all.
I strongly feel Clifford would have had this team +.500 and playoff bound.
Heck, he's done that for Orlando - and they are arguably a less talented team than ours this year.
