Just don’t. They get a big win, they follow it up with one of the worst losses you could ever imagine watching.

They have enough characters in which you could emotionally invest, but short of a 12-game winning streak, there are few redeemable qualities in this team that could hold your attention, let alone your rooting interest.

So for this year at least, pretend it's 1989 and Bernard King will soon be coming back from a knee injury.

It won’t be a playoff berth, but it’s something worth the brain power than trying to figure out why this team is so bad, and why its leadership is so unwilling to blow it up.
