Same here. My heart is broken for the seniors not getting the ring they deserved, but only because they gave everything to this fanbase through thick and thin, not because the season ended in a loss.The fact that the team had such a great season in what was, for me, the worst winter of my life, will make them always hold a special place for me. Cannot express my gratitude enough for that.
I agree, but I think it's something that can trickle down, too. That's the benefit to having guys that stick around more than one year. They can pass down the way things are done and how the team should care about each other. That's invaluable.The thing about this year's team I loved the most was how they were with each other. You really got the sense these guys all became a family, and it carried through to how they played and carried themselves on the court. I hope that mentality sticks around for years to come, though I think it probably has a lot to do with the particular circumstances of this season.
