You must really hate Metro's posts if you hate that article. If you put your fandome (I know it's not a word but what ever) a side you may have to consider removing Thomas if he doesn't bring our team to the play off level next season. I really hate to think that way because as a fan (a true fan) I always hope and expect this team to make it to the play offs but that sadly has not been the case. I think this writer has too much faith in the mediocre teams of the easter conference. Philly will suck for at least the next 3 years, Chicago is a disappointment and my bet is they will continue to be unless they make some upgrades, Orlando, still a work in progress. Bottom line the east is wide open. Bottom line, we would have made the playoffs if we didn't have injuries. Now with one more year under this new team's belt, the chemistry margin has increased and the chances of success with this current roster alone have improved. With standing a major meltdown I do not see this team missing the post season next year.
