They? Who is they? Fans? The owners and management sure didn't say anything like that. The only people preaching about it were fans with no direct ties to anyone who makes decisions.I personally don't think they are doing what they could to get it back. They had a golden opportunity in the offseason. They preached to us for years that that would be the time their hands were no longer tied and they could really get things done.
Not your fault you don't know the difference between a fan and Larry Bird.They blew it big time and I am pissed at them for misleading everyone again.
They didn't see mediocre last year, and I highly doubt that we wouldn't have a top 3 record in the East this year if Danny was playing.Now their hands are tied again and we are facing more years of mediocrity because of it.
Again, stop confusing fans with management.They like to use the excuse that nobody with a big name would want to come here. That is ******** and a defeatist attitude. I am sick of it. Thy don't tolerate it in other markets why should we here?
