    I think our identity post Bargs is that we are a team that relies on superior athleticism and 1 on 1 play to try to win games. I am hopeful that it will change to a team that uses it's athleticism to play good defense and get on the glass. Right now our starting 5 is one of the longest most athletic units in the league, that is probably where we should be focussing this season.

      Your basing this after 4 games? Oh alright. Damn god no here is our GM.
      I think you can base it on the ~40 games this team has been together and the fact that (other than JV and Ross) every other key player is in his prime. So, unless Ross and JV turn into Wade and Dwight overnight, this is pretty much as good as it gets....

      Yeah, they'll look better some night when the jumpers are going in but that's not a long term recipe for success.

              Nothing kills a "rebounding identity" like stapling your best rebounders to the bench.

                This team's identity is defense & rebounding - that is what the changes made to the roster in the summer were all about.

                By the way - getting the ball back by rebounding better trumps a few points on the FG% every time - of course its better to do both well.
                Last night was a perfect example of why this is not true.

                Raps won the battle on the boards by a rebound but they shot 49.3%.

                If you don't get them shooting a low percentage you can't take advantage on the defensive glass.
