Needless to say after the Dwightmare my opinion has changed. And the reason is NOT because I was all optimistic that we would get Dwight and that everything would turn around, it's that the potential of getting him clearly had this team fired up. Honestly I'm sick of seeing us moping on and off the court. This is the same team that beat LA and beat Chicago around mid-season when we were playing like we had something to prove. Now I'm seeing why Gerald Green only signed through the end of the season--who would want to play with a bunch of guys who know the only shot they have of winning is with a player who isn't coming? We look God awful. Marshon has basically nothing going on and for that I put a lot of the blame on Deron whose numbers should be on the upswing as we make this supposed playoff push we are committed to (though I imagine by now we've turned our sights in the opposite direction).
Yes, losing Brook has been devastating for this team, but you know what? If this is the Deron we're committing to on the off chance he resigns without Dwight, then good riddance. Let's get some better veteran examples for Marshon and commit to his development. Let's stop handing out draft picks and start building a more young, electric line-up. Let's get an exciting, hard-nosed, competitive team that doesn't whine or complain but works for a win when the team (and its fans) need it most.
