I know I'm a few games late on starting this but I was surprised when I saw we were at game 44. This was the team we were supposed to have all figured out after 20 games. 25 max. So where are we at the halfway point? Taking away the enthusiasm from the last two games it would be easy to say that we are a .500 team. That means there will be times we suck (early on) and times were great (a couple of weeks ago) and most of the time we'll be ok. And at the end, we'll have a record a game or two on either side of .500. It doesn't matter when the good or bad times happen, just the result.
That would be the easy answer. We are a .500 team. Exactly where we don't want to be. Blow it up. Sell high. But then, in typical raptor fashion, there has to be a caveat. The Rudy Gay trade. Are we a .500 team or are we a great team post trade that was just a bad team pre trade. We should know by now but I can't say it seems any clearer than the day before the season started. Only that we don't care if Gay picks up his option next year. I don't what to know if you think we're doing well. I want to know if you know what we're doing anymore than you did 44 games ago.
