How will Hornets respond to tough loss?

I realize it is a year away and the Hornets will be a slightly different team next year with a few minor tweaks to a solid team in the off season...But, are the Hornets going to get better this summer because of this series with SA or will they lose their edge and take a step backwards?

I am of the opinion that they may not respond well to this thumping by the Spurs in Game 7.  They expected to win this series and if wins are hard to come by early in the season next year, look for the emotionally volatile Hornets to implode in a storm of backbiting and fingerpointing.  Chandler, West, and even the mighty CP3 let their emotions get the best of them in game 7 and they could have a tough time bouncing back.

That isn't to say that they can't right the ship and have a strong team over the next few seasons.  I just think their stock was overvalued and it may take them a while to rebuild their confidence.
