Exactly - those are the natural instincts I was referring to. If he falls back on that, then he's no farther ahead of a TJ that falls back on speed and athleticism. That's not being critical of Jose playing that way - it worked for Tau, and it works against teams like the Hawks and Kings. But it's not what this team needs the most. It's just what they've had to rely on too much, and I've tried to point out that it's not the road paved with gold.
