Can we change the title of the Thread to "What we need: A confident shooting Ronnie"?

Holy Cow. Looking under the wrong rocks.

When your offense is "go go go" and no one has the stop sign on firing it up, its tough to ratchet it down to something completely different. Same problem last year.

Need 5 bodies out there on the same page that can execute a 1/2 court set if your team is leaking oil. 1 guy with ants in his pants effs it up and thats whats happening.

Coach has a deep team and will figure out who those guys are.

Sure hope so. Meltdowns and end game lack of execution are not new this season.

NPR interview of Sam Walker. I guess I missed it back in May.

Most, can't contain himself. "Blocked by Russell! Blocked by Russell!" Most shouts. "He came from nowhere!" At a shade over six foot nine, Bill Russell, Boston's twenty-threeyear-old...


MK will be 23 in March.

"The first half was lackadaisical," Thomas said. "Everybody was going through the motions. I'm like, 'We can't have that. We're better than this.' ... Everybody started putting the pieces together."

That’s what I am talking about. Maybe KT read the book.

Page 156, “Didier Deschamps said that within the confines of his team, he was rarely quiet, ‘I talked during the warm-up, I talked in the locker room, I talked on the field, I talked at halftime. I kept talking afterward. You have to talk. That’s how you correct something.’”

Dianetics is another good self help book. Probably way better than the one CUFF is trying to pimp on here.

I was waiting for an anti-intellectual attack on my post. Thanks for the opportunity to respond.

Walker’s book is a deeply research study on championship teams. Endorsed by Theo Epstein of the Red Sox and now the Cubs. Not a self-help book.

Scientology is one of the biggest scams around. The book “Dianetics” is the “intellectual” underpinnings of L. Ron Hubbard’s scam. CAGW, however, is a bigger scam in dollars and damage to the economy. So far, CAGW is not yet classified as a religion.

Hubbard was born in Nebraska. No word on whether he was a Cornhusker fan.

Tim Brando in the first half of the X game, “Greg McDermott tells me MF has become the leader of this team.”

And, “MF is the best player you have never heard of.”
