Was reading John Hollinger's analysis of the odds for making the Playoffs. The Eas:
Boston, Orl and Det all at 100%; Tor 99.7%, Wash 98.6%, Ind 93.4%, Clev 63.3%, Atl 59.9%
Mil 21.1%, Phil 21%, Miami 14.8%, Nets 14.2%, Chi 12.1%, Knicks 1.7% and Char 0.3% - Dead Last
In the West, there are 4 listed as below us: Port at 0.1% and Clips, Seattle and Minn at 0.0%.
Bad thing is, Portland and Clippers will have better records, it is just that they play and the West and the Teams are better from top to bottom. He has us ranked #28 out of 30 in his pole, so that all comes together nicely. Kinda gives me a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach.
I got so pissed off with Hollinger earlier when he was dissing the Bobcats when we were 6-4. Now, it looks like he and Stephen A. Smith know what they are talking about. I still cant stand Stephen A. Smith, but damn if he wasn't pretty damn close to right. I feel humiliated!
Somebody give me some hope for this team. I think it has to come from the Draft, because I dont see the mgmnt spending $ on a FA and buying out one of our Contracts. And I fear them trading with someone for a body rather than a draft pick as I do not have confidence in their analysis of players they would trade for right now. it will likely be someone with connections to someone in mgmnt as opposed to someone who can actually help us. I have more confidence in the College kids I am watching.
