real fanpost. project: playoffs.

ok, real talk.

so we want to get back to the playoffs, and we want to win a championship.

so, what if we don't get a top 5 pick?

what if we're consistently six or seven in the next couple drafts?

off the top of my head, based on their rosters now, Philly, Charlotte and Orlando will all be worse than us. i can guarantee myself of that. it's possible that the Celtics, Raptors, Kings, Timberwolves, Hawks, Lakers and Mavericks could be worse than us too, depending on Kobe. we could be #10 next year.

so if we don't get a top 5 pick, then, what do we do? how do we make the playoffs? how long is it going to take?

rather than proposing a concept to be idolized or scrutinized, i want to know what you, my fellow fans, want to see happen to our roster. what do we need to be .500? what do we need to make the playoffs in the West? what do we need to do to be elite? what do we need to beat the Thunder or Heat? can we count on that possible top 5 pick next year, and what happens if we don't get it?

we're promising and young and not totally devoid of talent, but we're not going to break .500 this year. right? what should we do? that's my concern. we should figure out what we have, but we should also figure out what we're going to do.
