Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

And So It Begins....

About ready to crank out my Scientific Method post, but couldn't help noticing that Mark Stein drops the Seattle Sonics to 18th and out of the playoffs in his preseason poll.

Mark. Whoa. Whoooooaaaaa.

We lost Jerome James, Nate McMillan, and Antonio Daniels.

You might remember Jerome as the laziest player EVER to put on a Sonics uniform, one who has earned the neverending disgust of the Sonic community.

You might remember that McMillan is a COACH, and I could count the number of really good coaches on one hand.

You might remember that Antonio Daniels was a BACKUP point guard, who will be offset by the continued improvement of Ridnour and a full season of Damien Wilkins.

Our starting 5 is Luke Ridnour, Ray Allen, Rashard Lewis, Nick Collison, and Vitaly Potapenko. Our 6th man is Vladimer Radmanovic, with a rotation of Damien Wilkins, Rick Brunson, Robert Swift, and Danny Fortson.

Am I missing something? You rank us below Memphis (who lost Stromile Swift), the Lakers (who simply added Phil Jackson), the Warriors (who, until they prove it, will be my Arizona Cardinals of the NBA), Denver (who we destroyed several times last year), and Sacramento (who lost Sonic-killer Cuttino Mobley and added perennial loser Abdur-Rahim).


Not this again. I don't know if I have the energy to rip people for thinking that a Seattle team had a terrible offseason. Again.
