Late to the party here...

I think it's an okay take, we lose a considerable amount of experience off a pretty good but certainly not great team. It's easier to go with more proven quantities.

We are definitely relying on a lot of IFs at this point, they seem like good bets, but we can't be sure. some of the big ones:

- DH making another jump to leader of the team
- KG becoming a consistent go-to scorer
- Nigel, Huff, DeAndre all making big contributions after having not played for us last year

I do think we have a better-than-not chance of making the tournament and even making noise. I'm personally super high on Huff, gotta love a 7 foot rim protecting 3 point shooting guy. But still, it's an IF
