“We focus on how we can get better as a team. We got a good opportunity to go out and you know compete for the whole thing and not solely focus on, you know all the outside noise. We can’t control it. You got to control whatever you can…we want to win the whole thing and that’s what we intend to, you know, pushing ourselves to do so.”
It’s the right thing to say from the right pair of people to say it. I’ve always, you know, told them that they got to do whatever is best for the team, so if that thought Doc was the right coach for us then I trust them. You know, either of them would have been great for the team and, you know, the owners and EB. And Daryl, well Daryl wasn’t here yet, but EB, they went with Doc, and I thought he’s a great choice. “Because with Ben guarding the ball, and then me being at the rim and protecting the rim and making sure no one gets there, or no one scores in there…we’ve got the potential to be the best defensive team in the league. And then offensively, just keep pushing the ball and, you know, when we get to the halfcourt side of the offense, you know, you know, I do what I do best, you know, score, draw fouls or when I’m doubled, making sure I kick it out to my shooters.”
They get their first chance to back up those words on Wednesday night.
