Honestly, we miss a lot of great looks. It feels like everyone is in a slump together. I attribute that to our team being so young and missing the mental toughness to man up and not hang their heads.
Great shooters don't care about the last shot and always believe the next one will go in. Our team kinds gets depressed when we miss a few and grow hesitant. Gallo is especially guilty of this. He hesitates more and more instead of just flowing into the game.
Turiaf is definitely our glue guy and you can notice how much we missed him in our losses. His energy is infectious.
People say Dantoni doesn't develop players and he's taking a lot of crap for not playing AR. However, he's the one Joe Johnson and Marion owes their contracts to. He found out how to fully get the most out of Boris Diaw who never recovered his play after he left Dantoni. He refuses to play guys like Darko and hamburger helper Curry who don't keep in shape. I can't believe my eyes when I read that some on the forums want Curry and Marbury back! Me first Marbury who makes everyone around him worse and Curry who has never ever made any effort to keep in shape. Why play someone who isn't trying their hardest to get on the court?
Now I'm not saying we're without fault. Our endgame plays have been horrible and our PGs can't seem to figure out the pick and roll. We still make bone headed mistakes on defense and dumb turnovers. However, if we had just made a few more of those open 3s, we would still have won at least 2-3 more games. That shows how close we are. Theres no need to despair and start ranting. Have patience with a young team.. Walsh did a great job with our salary, so we'll have plenty of options in the future.
