We saw enough in preseason games to know this is going to be a tough season.
But then again, most of us knew that was part of the larger plan when management
opted for the youth movement and didn't choose to re-sign either Jefferson
or Millsap. I'm still confident that taking this one step back
will soon bring us 2 steps forward... especially after the 2014 draft. We will
have multiple first round picks in a very talent laden draft. Honestly, the
future beyond this current season looks very promising. In the meantime, our
young guys will get some very valuable experience. Acquiring Tinsley will add
guidance in making that experience even more worthwhile. Good move.
Love Tinsley as a player and a professional. He gets some serious cred in my
book because he used to be such a hoodlum and now conducts himself as a
professional and brings it every day in terms of work and professionalism.Can't shoot worth a lick but I like everything else that he
brings.Defenses now will collapse at will and all our Bigs offensive
lives just got incrementally that much more difficult because whenever Tinsley
is out there it is now literally 5 guarding our 4 whenever we are on offense.There will be flashes of promise and greatness that we will get to see
periodically this season in terms of player performance. There will also be
long gaps and lots of consecutive losses inbetween those flashes though.Its going to be ugly. If we are going to be bad I just hope it is bad
enough to end up with a shot at THE top draft prospects.Phoenix has
gone into overdrive tanking mode. Junior Jazz would give them a run this year.
Welcome back, Jamaal!Anybody get a good look at Mike Harris? How do
you see him fitting in, or is he someone that will probably be gone soon,
perhaps to be re-signed later if needed?
