Carl wondered if the team needed a deep playoff run to reinvigorate the fans.

“Did we need a deep run with the way things started and losing out on the fan base a little bit,” Dukes said. “People were not as excited as this season got underway because of the way we were losing.”

Dukes continued about this year never had the feel that has been there in the past.

“The team will change, here’s the thing though, will it change so much that you feel like we won’t be a contender? I don’t feel that way, I feel we’re always going to be a contender when Darren and Carlos are making these decisions to bring in the talent. I just never felt like the talent meshed enough for me to go, man we’re something, we’re a problem, we’re gonna be an issue in the playoffs, I didn’t feel that way.”
