Now I know this team compared to that team is a lot different, but no one can deny that this team still has great players. i still believe this team will pull it together, they've showed spurts where they are a dominant team, now its all about channeling that for the full 48 minutes. Defense is key, and at this point, defense isn't about how much the coach emphasizes it or not, its about how much heart you have and how much pride you have, to make shutting down the other player more important than making baskets. I think what the lakers did in the last 5 minutes of that spurs game was phenomenal, and maybe they will realize something they were doing right on the defensive end.
It's easy to be pessimistic right now. But the tides will turn for us, and when they do, this team will finally be living up to expectations. Here's hoping for that.
