It’s still tough to get over that last year we all watched a 48-win NBA team and now we’re watching one that might not win 30.
Forget about the circumstances. Those don’t matter anymore. What matters is how you get back to 48 wins, and maybe that's where some pessimism creeps in. Thing is, you can’t just assume that this is a one-year dip. I certainly don’t consider it a given that the Warriors will be a playoff team next year. Do you?
