To do the cool things, you have to be logged in first.
A few things:1) You're pretty hardcore to stay up late on the East Coast for these games, so major props there.2) I'm not entirely sure the team and Nate are on the same page and until they both get there, expect more sporadic play.3) Agreed on getting Greg the ball. He leads the NBA in field goal percentage for Pete's sake! Also, I do think he is making more of a concerted effort to not foul but is still getting a lot of those reputation fouls which will haunt him for at least another year. If he continues to be a leader in blocks and rebounds, then he'll start to get the go-ahead to be a a little more aggressive. 4) Roy needs to step up and just take over some of these games. Case and point was during that awful 31-2 run the Grizz put on us. He needed to just put his head down and go to the hoop.5) Finally, the team just needs to know this season will not be easy. They can't trot out there and think just because they won 54 games last year that teams will be intimidated and lay down for them, oh quite the contrary. Now we play the role as hunted instead of hunter.
Yeah. Exactly. Exactly, exactly, EX-freakin-actly!! You just summed up my thoughts, feelings, and frustrations in this single post.
Thanks. Glad I could help. And sure - coach and team are not on the same page. So who's job is it to get on the same page? That one's not up to BRoy.
As the "Leader" of this team and cornerstone of the franchise, I still think it is part of Roy's job description to help get everyone on the same page. Many of the guys follow his every move, so if he can help the team gel, it will only help the team in the long run.
Barrett had a nice post today (he always has nice posts XD,) and he links to an interview with a news correspondent who had some good insights into what's egging BRoy. It's worth chekcing out.
