    This (heat game) is the closet we can get to a playoff game, DAL wasn't.

    I think everyone can see my point and what I was talking about.

    I think Chandler is our leader in the regular season but Anthony or Lin in the playoffs.

    I honestly think that's our area of weakness. I would like to see one player step up and be the leader. STAT did it before the Melo trade and maybe should step up again.

    However,we have three all-star players (Chandler should be!) who have a massive influence on how we play. Chandler in particular was a cornerstone in the Mavs championship win so I would like to see him play a more active role leadership-wise.

    Default The Man Handler Leads the Team

    Chandler is BY FAR, the leader of this team.

    "A leader is a person who guides others toward a common goal, showing the way by example, and creating an environment in which other team members feel actively involved in the entire process. A leader is not the boss of the team but, instead, the person that is committed to carrying out the mission of the Venture."

    Melo and STAT have not led by example, they are not consistent like the Man Handler. they do not have rings. Chandler refuses to lose. he dominates. his actions speak louder than words. He is the epitome of a NEW YORK KNICKERBOCKER, first on defense, taking hacks and tumbles and coming back strong, encouraging everyone to play better. that is a leader.

    Its Carmelo. He's clearly the captain. He always gives the pre-game and victory speeches. Tyson is the defensive captain tho lol.

    i dont think there needs to be one clear cut leader. our defensive leader and vocal leader on the court is tyson, but that doesnt mean he can keep egos in check or keep everyone focussed and all that. i was looking for someone to be physically assertive in the second half against the heat. melo really stepped up when the team game wasnt working and played his heart out against lebron. it wasnt exactly a playoff situation at that point, more like a 1 on 1 to settle a bet after hs practice, but melo really took over. lebron would have looked really really bad if his horrible shots werent dropping. melo needs to be the guy thats gonna lead by will when things arent going right. the other 36 minutes of the game it needs to be lins team.

    the way were gonna win a championship is to have a few guys lead in different ways. i left out jeffries leading the second unit defensively and jr offensively, so you can see there are many guys that can/must step up if were gonna be as good as were capable of being.
