In your opinion do you want to make the playoffs this year?
The big problem is in making the playoffs, we would lose our first round pick this year (from the Ben Gordon trade)
Some people, including me believe that this summer is a possible gamechanger in terms of becoming a perrenial playoff contender (and more) or still being in the rebuild process.
More then likely if we made the playoffs we would be facing the Miami Heat in the first round, so that it something to think about as well. If we kept our pick by missing the playoffs this year I would hope it would be used on a young scorer such as Trey Burke or a young athletic wingman. With the addition of the draft we will have a ton of cap space to make moves through free agency ( unlikely to land a big name contract because of today's nba) or land a possible franchise wingman through a trade (more then likely, given Joe D's history on trades. Lets face it Joe Dumars has been more successful through trades then FA... Dumping Ben Gordon, Aquiring Ben Wallace, Rasheed, RIP)... this summer is very exciting because as I stated earlier it has a potential to be a gamechanger summer and thrust us right into the playoffs.
Onnnnnnn the flip side of all this it is widely stated that this draft class is quite weak all around and it would be better for our Young team to gain Valuable Playoff experience.
