The playoff picture is emerging, and it's submerging hopes of certain fanbases. If the Los Angeles Lakers are your team, you're coming to grips with the prospect that your superteam might be a long shot for the postseason.
If you're a New Orleans Hornets fan, you're tamping down expectations after they were ratcheted up on draft night. If you're a Charlotte Bobcats fan, you're coming to the sad realization that your team is awful yet again.
It could be worse, though. You could be a Sacramento Kings fan. Perhaps your team's staying in town, and maybe it's been sold to Seattle.
Regardless of how poorly your squad is doing in the standings, be thankful if it's staying in your city through next season at least.
