That's right! The season is officially over and my thread has returned and this time it won't be used sarcastically after only two weeks into the season! Want some reasons for optimism? 1. The draft is in less than a week and we'll know what young star is joining our already talented young cast! Ingram? Simmons? Someone else? Don't matter! Another stud! 2. Luke Walton is returning triumphantly home! He brings with him youth, fresh ideas, an ability to communicate with young players and veterans, a new-aged offense that our pieces fit perfectly into. Luke's return home sparks new hope in us as fans and our players as well! 3. Free Agency is right around the corner and we've had our name attached to all kinds of people. Home runs like LeBron, Durant, and DeRozan? Solid players like Noah, Deng, or Parsons? Maybe we trade for someone great like Cousins, M. Gasol, or Butler? Who knows? The answer will bring us even more hope though! 4. Byron is gone! 5. Byron has been let go! 6. Byron is no longer our coach! 7. No Byron around our young players! 8. Seriously Byron is totally fired! 9. Look around and see no Byron! 10. With or without any additions to the team, we've got a great young group of players. Randle, Russell, Clarkson, and Nance Jr. all have great potential and could make us a great team again given time. They each bring something unique and different and they all fit together beautifully. Even if we miss on everything this summer those four with maybe Tarik Black and Anthony Brown and our #2 pick will make for a fun and exciting season!
