    I think everyone knew AD had the potential to play like he has over the last 6, the problem has always been AD was too selfless to show it. His attitude change has been a huge part in him putting up insane numbers. I'm glad he got his head on straight.

    Guess what. This team is not done. In fact, we are seeing a new team emerge that has grit and if we keep winning and beat teams like rockets and Boston then Im not ruling anything out. Get the 3rd seed. Jrue has really surprised me. Hes playing like a superstar and I am ok recognizing him as one of the best guards in the league.

    If by context you mean admitting you were wrong about AD and learning from your mistakes in rushing to judgement, then yes context is key.

    it's true... he was totally shell shocked... weren't we all... DC was a major blow. I honestly had started believing AD wasn't capable of being the great player that DC is (playing emotionally and as a leader etc...)... but he's come around, and proven us all wrong.

    Hey, the first line of post was "I hope this is an overreaction to a bad stretch of games." So it was and I'm very happy to admit it. Looking back at the descriptors I used--"listless," "sleep walkers," "pouting"--that's exactly what they looked like in the stretch following Cousins' injury. I also said what I expected was for Davis, who looked particularly disinterested, to show he had arrived as a true superstar player and carry the team the way a LeBron or Westbrook would carry their teams. Ask and you shall receive! That is exactly what Davis has done and I couldn't be more pleased. To see him step up and become the kind of force that we always knew he could be.

    I don't know exactly what Boogie said to Davis on that phone call, but I bet every coach in the league would like the transcript!

    A perfect example of how this team is floored without DMC.
    AD and DMC is another story.

    Steven Adams breaks down the Thunder’s success not switching at all when he was guarding old mate Anthony Davis pick-and-rolls: “Their guards are not trying to score like that, like crazy...They’re more probing, trying to see if they can drag you out to get lobs for old mate.”

    What that literally means is if our guards aren't aggressively attacking the basket, teams will stop following them and focus on AD.

    Forget Cousins. Our guards need to stop being passive.

    Jrue is the only one who can get to the rack consistently without getting blocked
