As I said in an earlier post, I felt BD went off the boil about half way through the season So I am not overly sad he is gone. Yes there were glimpses of brilliance, but 1 man does not a team make!
I am getting fed up of listening to bleating fans stating in their vast experience that we do not have a hope of the playoffs! Call your self a fan?
I am fully behind the team members we have who did a fantastic job for us last year, these are young guys and if I was a player reading this site and the lack of respect being thrown around (Harrington, Barnes, Jackson, for example) when these guys have given their all for us and we only just missed out, I think I would be extending a finger in the air and saying "Thanks for the support".
Yes I would like to see Brand or Iggy here but other than that, I really want to see how our young guys play given the opportunity and most importantly now that the limelight is away from Baron. More importantly lets stop talking about a bunch of second raters like Heinrich, Crawford, etc. I think our guys are better than all of them.
We had a fast run and gun game before and that was with Baron lumbering up the court like an ox slowing things down on numerous occasions. I think given the opportunity we could easily be one of the fastest teams up and down the court and therefore what we lack in "Boom Dizzle" (A frickin dumb nick name anyway) we make up for with raw, fast, growing talent.
Yes it may be a further development year, but I want to see Ellis, Andris and the majority of our squad back to really show what we can do.
So rather than the constant whining about an almost new squad, why dont some of you start showing a little "Warrior" colour on your sleeve and say, if someone comes, great, if not, so what, we are behind you you 110% fellas and the arena will be just as loud!
The last time we were underdogs I liked the result, lets have at it again!
