Who backed anything this team did last year?

Actually - if you look at the point where this was an actual team on the court, it got much easier to stand the smell. And I have always been happy to see the continuation that Jay represents in terms of how he goes right back to Lenny and KO, and was a bigger part of Sam's staff. He knows how last season went off the rails and doesn't need to wonder or over-react as a result.

Him being Canadian - does that mean squat right now? Can we wait until he achieves something beyond putting in some work in the pre-season before we need to sing o canada?

BC could very well be lying to himself, or to us or simply putting a positive spin on things so far. If it's the last option then it's hardly something to complain about. That's his job. If it's the second option it's not a life and death matter. If it's the first one then there's definitely a problem, and he's still going to have to show the results here before we can really be convinced that he isn't capable of lying to himself. When it comes down to it it just doesn't matter where we put our faith - all these guys have a lot to prove starting yesterday, and it will not end until they all go fishing with fingers pointing at them to signal praise or blame.
