    This might be some of the camaraderie that Drummond was talking about developing a little while back.

    No question about it. But I also think Reggie, himself could have handled the entire situation a little bit better after his return.

    How does one 'handle' losing a player who arguably, was responsible for more production than anyone else on the team?

    Reggie's ability to drive and finish at the rim, and his PnR partnership with Dre, made everyone else on the team better. He literally carried us to victories last season that we had no business winning.

    I get that SVG is a stiff when it comes to rotations, but seriously, if every Amazon distribution centre in the US spontaneously combusted you wouldn't be calling out Jeff Bezos for your late package.

    I'm sure the late package would be SVG's fault because he yelled at Andre and hurt his feelings.

    He doesn't start him immediately, play him for months while the team struggled before randomly deciding not to ever play him again.

    Well he had just come back from an injury. You don't just chuck him out there for 40 minutes on the first day back.

    The team struggled because he couldn't produce like he used to. Admittedly we were playing better with Ish but Reggie *should* be a better piece than Ish.

    Actually, Reggie only played 23 minutes in his first game back and 18 minutes in his second game.

    It was more than Reggie. Our Chakras became completely misaligned. Something happened.

    Ish was never the long term solution as a starter. We knew that going in. I like Ish, but he's no IT3.

    How about Jonas Jerebko in game 3? He was the spark off the bench that gave them the unlikely win. It may be only one game but coming off the 2 beatings they took in Boston it was a pretty big win.

    He came in and did great. Hit some shots, talked some smack, he was a good spark for sure.

    You are being overly generous: he is merely rearranging the chairs.

    No disagreement there. But, for sure, Ish opens up the talent flexibility.

    I bet he could get his leg up the wall quite well.

    That's the point of making the coach the President of bball ops.

    Theo Epstein had patience.

    Bezos had patience and a 10 year b plan.
