Good D is easy to ask for but hard to get. 06-07 The Clipps did their talking on the court. Kinda like Rocky, it wasn't pretty but it worked. Last yr we lost that identity and identity governs a lot of your behavior. This yr it's EB's team and they'll take on more of EB's attitude (I hope). Then they'll be a lot more pressure for the guys to do the "D"
Kayman needs to do a lot of work on the basics (I'm still not a great CK fan). He's always in foul trouble and we need his offence--"D" vs points. Tim Thomas often has his own agenda which sometimes includes working hard. I think 50 will be motivated to play D this yr. And yeah guys losing li'l bro' #14 didn't help. The arithmetic- If CK does his homework ( I 've said this ad nauseum) and Mikey takes a Popovich pill it looks like a plus .
As far as Hart after my original elation, I think the chance of him being the PG we need is much less than 50/50--not good odds to bet your season on but a great backup. As per David we don't need a pure PC but again who's on the table?
