It's a fun team. And a well-built team.
They had a similar effect as we did pre-Melo:
they are able to challenge superior teams, by the collective force of their style of play, and the whole being worth more than the sum of parts. And ya, they are young enough and have the cap space to be in a position to rationally build a bit more to actually challenge the NBA elite.
Also, I can't help but find it hilarious (even though it *is* true), that many of the same people rationalizing us getting our asses handed to us by MIA (Chandler sick for Game1, Shumpert injured, Amare hand etc etc) acted like complete ****ing tards when we get swept by the Celtics, just bc their dicks got hard every time they had a chance to try to attack the MDA Straw Man.
When the truth is, we were much more legitimately competitive vs the Celtics last year, than vs MIA this year, despite being more deterred by injury, and being much less talented overall.
