Sometimes when there's a lot of stuff to criticize about the team--which there always is in the midst of a losing stretch--it's easy to find yourself saying things that sound negative.  Nobody's mentioned it or anything, because you all know what it's like to be fans.  Criticism is part of the deal.  But I also want to offer this assurance, and I mean this 100%:

We may be losing but I am still enjoying watching the team this year more than I have in any of the past 4-5 years.  In fact it's not even close.  It's a combination of the young guys, Zach trying to carry us by inventing new ways to score every night, and guys like Ime and Dixon who at least try to give something every time they step on the court.  The results aren't perfect but the process is a heck of a lot better than it used to be.

Or put another way...this is the first year in a long time it's been worth saying anything bad about the team.  Those other squads left you throwing up your hands in frustrated silence.  This one gives you hope of progression into a nice future.
