Did we just become best friends? YUP!!!

Great points. Too often people harp on AB, and yes he is a poor defender, but he's not alone. Curry and Ellis had 39 points in the first half!!!

This team plays hands up and hands off defence. They have even when Mitchell was here and Kobe was dropping 81 on us. We need to play like Boston... change our image, dirty up the games (LX I know you agree)... it may take time to get the refs to adjust, but we have time. At this point, we'll continue to flounder as a soft team with a reputation for being soft.
