That's just it tho, THEY DID! They quit right up until they were officially eliminated from the playoffs! Now it's like they're back to early season form, and while that is good news for the start of next season, it its just total garbage from this fans perspective. Where was this fight a month ago when we were still in the playoff race? Where was this never-say-die attitude back in mid-late December when we were still in first?
An elite draft pick selection by a draft team known for making gold out of middling picks would have been amazing because I know they would have found EXACTLY the right player to fit in one of this franchises missing pieces going forward. Now most of those picks are going to be off the table by the time we pick, unless we win the lottery and gain a few spots like New Jersey did last year.
I HATE this team right now. It waits until NOW to start winning again, after ALL IS LOST, when the ONLY THING LEFT is an elite draft pick and it completely screws that pooch too.
I can't wait for this miserable season to finally be over.
