    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?
