Keith Langlois: Also at your press conference, you said “our time is now.” I’m extrapolating from that, but I’m guessing you’re not going to tell your team that “we’re scrapping to get into the playoff field” and leave it at that. Without giving away your message when you gather for training camp, what is your big-picture view of what you have here? Dwane Casey: That we’re a good team. We’re better than what people are saying – that we’re right there hanging around the eighth spot. No, no, no. We’re a better team than that.
But it’s up to us to go out on the floor and show everybody and proving it by going out on the floor and doing it and working and being a tough-minded team on the floor. It’s up to us to do it, but I envision us – and I know we’re better than what people have us ranked because of the talent of a Blake Griffin, Andre Drummond, Stanley Johnson, Reggie Jackson, the guys we have, the young players we have to infuse with them, it’s just too much there for us not to be better than just scratching into the eighth spot of the playoffs.
