[I was trying to decide if I had time to post tonight, then saw this diary from JSun that I like better than what I was planning to write anyway. This is a great way of looking at the KT trade. Thanks, JSun! Based on this, I'd say I'm still at the "bargaining" stage. -TexSUN]
I really miss Thomas, but I've moved on to acceptance.
I went through the stages, with all of the delusions wrapped around them and me. Most of these were some of my original emotions/thoughts, and some of them I adopted from others. In the end, though, it sums things up nicely.
Here's the sum: The team is weaker for the playoff run if they run into SA. That is, of course, unless they actually do get stronger in the defensive post (STAT, Diaw and ... Marks?). But, what am I going to do? Stop following the team I've been watching since I was 3? I'll give them a couple more years before I jump off the bandwagon.
Here are my stages:
No. I didn't just read that. Well, I'm sure Kerr and Co. have a plan. This won't make a difference. We'll be fine. You'll see.
I hate that money-grubbing $arver and his lackey Kerr. This is the biggest bone-headed move since the DJ-Robey trade!
Maybe this is part of a larger deal to land KG. Or, maybe, to wait until Seattle waives KT, only to get him back on the cheap. These guys are brilliant!
We're going to be doomed to mediocrity for the next decade.
It's true that if the Suns face SA in the playoffs, they would appear to have a weaker roster. We'll see next spring, I suppose.
The Suns will just have to lace 'em tight and run faster than before. We're in for another roller-coaster fun ride again.
