My view on the matter at hand for a lot of teams who will be competing not for the championship but for Jabari, Andrew and Julius.

What do you usually do to cope with the losing seasons of your team?

Myself, as a Raptors fan, I just try to watch old playoff games against the Sixers and visualize what pieces we need to get there. Also I make sure to watch Raptors-Bobcats games where they actually make us look good (save for the one I actually attended where they were spanked by them in the ACC).

Always wondered what Boston fans did all those years and the plans for this year too, at least there's success to look back on.

Edit: my post came out kinda hateful and a bit off topic. Didn't mean it that way.

But as a Suns fan what I've done the past couple years is watch the Suns vs Lakers highlights(playoffs and reg season). Those games are great. I also look at the sweep we gave the Spurs and all the chaos Dragic was causing in the playoffs.

Watch the Bruins, Patriots playoff run, countdown the days until Spring Training starts is usually how it goes up here.

As a Jazz fan. I don't mind. It should be fun to see what we've actually got to work with as Favors, Hayward and Kanter will get plenty of playing time. I think this draft is deep enough (if players actually come out this year) that I won't be upset if we don't get one of the above mentioned players.

Good lord. Did anyone think to edit that article before it was submitted?

I'm down to tank. Orlando has no choice, I actually like Randle overall 6-9 230, and he's not even in his man body yet

Lol, you do that to cope with a losing season? Now that I think about it, I do the same thing.....but it actually makes me happy.

Don't forget about Exum, that kid is going to be a hell of player and someone will get a great PG this year if he skips college or next if he does go to college
