wonderful win last night on so many levels... this is a new team, and there learning in the heat of the moment how to win the close games... thats huge. We all know that max, Amir, AA would have never seen a sec of playing time in the last 6 mins of the game. (probably should add stuckey into that group too) So none of them have much experience in playing the final mins of games.... there coming thru and learning. Name another team that has been in the championship hunt that has had this much of a turnover and not really fallen that far. Were down to 3 players who won the ship with us, 4 if you count the team that lost to the spurs. Our Bigs are all playing to there potential and within themselves not trying to be something there not... thats all you can ask for them. Loved seeing the good Max last night, lets hope we see it more then less. Rip.. Rip... Rip... I had been on your side till you had to open your mouth with such a selfish sickening me me me comment. You have noticed that the team really hasn't missed you to much the last 2 weeks, you should be humbled and doing anything/everything to do anything to help out the team. This isn't the weak backup guard team where hunter was just about the best we had to backup you up, you have to earn your time each and every night. No AA can't score like you yet but his all around game is going to make it next to impossible to sit. You notice AI out there running all over with the ball and not turning it over and trying to get everybody involved. (I think he goes out of his way to get Brown involved... I really respect that) You might also notice he's a HOF 1st ballet no doubt. Last but not least there's Stuckey, he's the reason your buddy was shipped out, he's got future all star written all over him. He runs the team nicely and is only getting started, and plays with a sence of urgency that you and Billiups lost 3 years ago. It doesn't matter if you start/finish... it matters what you give to the team while your out there, you are playing well and you will finish the game I bet, its not your night then a teamate will pick you up. You have a chance here Rip to be part of something special... by far the best backcourt in the league, or force your way into a trade. I'd take whatever roll was given you and ride this train to what could be a great playoff's. Next year who knows if AI will be here, but if you are going to be a totally selfish player now.... I can say Joe will make sure your not here either. In closing this is the most fun I've had watching this "TEAM" play since probably 04-05. between the AI and Dysss refusal to lose and the energy of the kids I love how were shaping up.
