They are a very streaky team which is why they are sitting at the 8 seed. They were an eight seed at this time last year so why they look very different the results aren't so different YET.
Don't misunderstand me, I'm not saying they're about to ascend to the top of the West. But there were serious questions about Morey's future after he tried to leverage everything with draft picks to trade for a star vet and got stuck with multiple #1 picks and no star. I think the Lin backlash has gone too far the other direction at this point. He's a nice player. Parson has really come on, Asik is a good guy to have and they have several other young players that could develop.
They're still not "there" yet, but they're significantly further along than they were coming out of the draft.
