Let's Try to Be Rational for a Moment..

...I know it's hard and disappointing, but we have to think about it before we press the panic button.

Last year we were extremely excited about this team, we thought it could do damage.  This was before the arrival of Blake Griffin.  We didn't even have Blake Griffin in the realm of consciousness. 

The team is already better than last year's in every position, excluding Blake Griffin.  It's still possible to do well in the first few weeks.

DJ will just have to develop faster.  Camby will have to speed up his recovery timeline.

Who was the backup point guard last year? Upgraded with Bassy

Who was the backup SG and SF? Upgraded with Sual

Then there's the front court.  Kaman, Camby, DJ, Smith and even Novak.  The team's front court is already deep, certain (you know who) players need to mentally show up and it's all good.

So let's think about it before we cry too much.

I am extremely disappointed in not being able to see the exciting and dynamic Griffin for another 6 weeks (let's hope he doesn't get stuck on the Kaman vortex timeline of doom), but there's still a lot to look forward to.
