poll: (not so) great expectations

after watching (only) the 4th quarter of the kings game (thanks for that league pass!), and now the portland game, i started wondering what my expectations are now for the spurs for the remainder of the season. i'm sure we're all disappointed with how things have gone so far, and maybe they'll suddenly pull their finger out and figure it all out, but i'm starting to have a bad feeling about it all.

so, given that, what are your expectations for the rest of the season? what do you feel is a realistic result now? when the season started i wasn't as confident as some around these parts (i've never really rated jefferson), but i did think if the guys gelled we could challenge the lakers for best in the west. to my mind thats now impossible - if we haven't gotten it going by now, i don't see it happening with the team as currently constructed (rodeo trip or no rodeo trip). i also don't see a silver bullet out there to fix this via a trade - its the defense where we're suffering, and no single trade is really going to fix that. to my mind, we're heading for a low seeding and a first round exit. 50 wins? maybe....maybe. but who cares in that case?

what say you?
