Back in the Oakley/Willis/Childs/Christie/AWill days we had players like that.
These days we don't (with the exception of Lowry I guess... and JV although he's a rook).
The Raps haven't had any strong, veteran leadership in a long, long time.
Strongly agree with the bold.
To be honest,I don't see/feel a sense of urgency or frustration from any players right now but i doubt that they don't care. It actually bothered me in the loss to Charlotte that Demar was more visibly pissed off by the none fouled call on Bargnani
than what Andrea showed. AB kind of just put his head down and walked away. The Raps definitely need more leaders. I see alot of intensity from JV and think he's shown more than anyone else that he cares(imo).
