i think there's a real steep learning curve when it comes to the playoffs. the dubs this year are kind of like the clips last year. they've got the talent to win, but do they have the experience and confidence (inter-related)? i think even great teams tend to get knocked out the first time they make it. then the next year they come back and know what it's about. then we have to see if they actually do have the talent to win. the clips and the grizz are in that situation now (clips no, grizz, maybe). The dubs will be there next year.
