You guys are letting Doc fool you... he's doing nothing more than trying to light a fire. He said the same things about his coaching when he said the team was soft! It didn't work last time, what makes him/us think it will this time? Seems like a lot of wind blowing to me.
What makes us think they have it? Because Paper says we are good enough?
Has anyone considered that maybe, just maybe, they aren't good enough together... that they haven't meshed b/c they aren't the right fit for each other? It takes a lot to put together a good team filled with players who work well as a unit. You can assemble all the good players you want to but it doesn't mean they will have on court chemistry no matter how much they like each other off the court. Look at Mia, they have 3 of some of the best players at their positions, THE PLAYERS chose to come together (collusion)... they liked each other off the court, they were friends. They all gave all the effort you could want from them but they still weren't enough their first year, they had to lose (and be helped -.-) before they figured out/fixed themselves and they still barely got passed us. The only players on our team that are use to losing and are probably accustomed to it is Lee, Collins, and Barbosa (kinda, even though the Pacers were solid last season)... all of the other players we have won and knows what it takes to win (Sully is a rookie so he doesn't count)... to me, it doesn't seem like they aren't trying, they just don't seem to ever click all at once. It's weird really... one day PP and KG will light it up and RR and Green will disappear and vice-verse, then bench will light it up and the starters will stink it up or again, vice-verse.
I don't know what needs to be done but I know that Doc can't keep talking about it publicly because that hasn't worked and it could make it worse.
