I doubt we will have another season like that. For one, last year the injuries were prevalent (to Baron, Kaman...etc). Two, we had a lot of off the court incidents (think of Randolph getting a D.U.I). Three, players unhappy with being on the team (think of the whole Baron Davis incident where he allegedly told his former Golden State Warriors team mates that he wanted to go back to Golden State). Three, not starting Eric Gordon right away (think of how many more games we could have won if he had started, and also he was topping all rooks in scoring from the time he was given the starting role).
This year will be better. Gordon will start, so we will have that scoring threat (and think of how much more deadly he will be with one year expereince under his belt). We got rid of Randolph, so we shouldn't have any off court distraction, and we replaced him with the unanimous best player in the draft. We even got some good players to come off the bench (Telfair, Smith). This year will finally be the year that we dig ourselves from out of a hole.
