all of which raises the interesting question of whether people now EXPECT the playoffs, given the good start. i know i figured that the kings would not make it to postseason play, but that it would be close. if i had to assign percentages, maybe 25% chance of making the playoffs. during the winning streak, it was easy to think that the kings would battle for first place in the pacific, but the last two games kind of brought it all back to earth. so, at this point, i think their chances of making the playoffs are better--maybe 40%--but i still expect them to miss.
