    Which is why I predicted 40 wins this season. They are exceeding my expectations. Very proud of these guys.

    I predicted higher simply due to the fact that i hope for better. I also have some faith that Dame will always exceed my expectations. Still going with 48. But i do realize 44 to 45 would be more realistic.

    44-30 record sits at 74 games is just 59% winning percentage. Or a 49-50 win season. So you just sit in there on that treadmill if your team is getting into a 50 win season on the third year of a rebuild.
    Far from "Mediocrity". Sorry you can't see that.

    we are all different and have different expectations. I watch this team this play and I am bored to tears, for me it's just an awful style of basketball to watch. So we may win 45 games give or take and likely get bounced in the first rd again, maybe 2nd if we are very lucky, heck that's IF we make the playoffs. Just my view, I can't wait till we blow it up or make some huge changes like a CJ trade

    I predicted 52 wins. However, I had no idea our forwards would suck so bad. If we were getting strong forward play we would be right on track.

    LOL! I was just about to say that Dame and Nurk are polar opposites. This proves it!

    That's just silly.

    It's not Stott's fault at all. TT got plenty of touches in the post.

    Mostly on the move. Its rarer occasion he gets an actual chance to set his feet and dig in.

    Last year Nurk was a beast, this year he is not. I truly believe that has everything to do with Stott's system
