about this team that scares me is that our unprotected pick doesn't belong to us. That imperative to win and marginalize that huge mistake trumps everything reasonable and positive I want to feel and enjoy about this team. I just want to be happy that they are improving and fun to watch. I am irrational about this and I don't like it, e.g. you just know that this year will be THE YEAR that the Wolves ping-pong ball wins the lottery. Who leaves their first rounders unprotected anymore? All our current first round picks revert to 2nd rounders, lol, after the lottery protections wear off.
It makes me wonder how many others feel like this whether they know it or not; feeding our impatience and win-now mentality with this green and tender team. The Wiz beating Toronto ticks me off. Frickin Jaric, frickin McHale, frickin Taylor, frickin Adriana Lima (the only reason that Marko was worthy of giving up a first rounder, maybe McHale willfully forgot to ALWAYS, ALWAYS use protection when thinking about her coming to Target Center) .
