Scale of 1 - 10: 7
No excuses for injuries -- every team has em. ie - Oh the Bulls make us look like idiots - and they haven't had D-Rose -- so don't cry to me about our injuries. Check the records. Where would we be without Melo?
It's nice that we are in 1st in the Atlantic -- but overall the NBA is a grind - and to win rings - you need to grind it out.
We lost a lot of that momentum of the hot start -- and now I see us reverting to the mean.
We'll obviously make the playoffs - where the 2nd Season will prove the 1's half of the 1st season is not even worth discussing.
I rate the season as a success so far as for gaining some respectability -- not much more than that.
Wish I was more optimistic - but to me - I've seen us win the Eastern Conf Finals twice in my life -- woop dee doo.
This team is not a long term team currently -- 2 year window.
Whoever gives them A's etc is just so happy that they made it this far from obscurity at this point -- but I am not convinced I'll be any happier at the end of the season this year than I have been for the last 20 years.
First half '12 - '13: 7 out of 10. E for Effort.

1/23/14: This "team" is irreparably damaged
My Solution: Shut the team down until ALL current contracts expire. If players / coaches / execs can find jobs elsewhere - let them go get new contracts and cut ties completely.
Wait ~5years and relaunch as an expansion team.
Bring back 2 people -- no more, no less. 1: Walt Frazier 2: Herb Williams [Honorable Mention: Mike Breen]
