Throughout the week some of you drop some brilliant or at least somewhat thoughtful comments and so this is a try at highlighting some of them. Disclaimer: It’s not that I necessarily agree with all of them, but they were interesting and for the most part, well put. Consider everything sic’d.
Points for Keith. He called it. (Vince): I think the idea that we should COMPETE for a playoff spot is the best measure of success. That doesn’t necessarily mean we’re playing for keeps the last week of the year, but in February and March we need to be on this board saying things like, “You know, Phoenix is headed on the road for four games, and if we can put together a little streak here we might have a shot.” It’s key for a young team to play 70 meaningful games to get that experience for 2010-11 when the playoffs will be THE goal, not a hypothetical.
