Tonight, at the last game of the season, Bob Johnson addressed the crowd. He had Ray and Gerald next to him. He described them as "superstars"
As I am watching Johnsons body language along with MJ's, I began to realize they are really convinced what we have going is eventually going to make us a contender. Frankly I dont think we are remotely close, maybe an 8th seed, but no where near a contender.
I think we are going to lock up Felton and Okafor to long term extensions/contracts and be stuck in mediocrity for several more years. This combo of Felton/Rich/Wallace/Okafor didnt seem to flow this year (blame it on sam vincent all you want, but dallas has a bad coach, though he is inspirational, and still finds ways to work around it)
I think this is going to be a painful offseason for people like me who love to play with the trade machine and try to improve the trade by finding realistic trades that can be made, and for those who want to see the team shaken up (I do I do, the only lock piece for me is Jrich).
My logic tells me he has to be gone, but I also felt that there is a distinct possibility Vincent stays. Somehow with MJ courtside, he must have seen how poorly Vincent coaches, but I am afraid they wont want to give up on him.
This will be an interesting offseason, one that I think is going to make me hurt a little.
