A part of me wonders if it's being deferred by some sort of hierarchical setting in the locker room where there's a belief that we go as far as Rudy and DeMar take us. Heck, I can see where Gay might think that (I recall some quotes made by the previous regime when they acquired him).

The coach can do a lot of things, but I'd love for the players to begin saying on the court, "enough of this". It's gotta be grating on the nerves of some of the players.

Again, I think Lowry really could take a bigger leadership role here as the overall floor general. Being a PG isn't just about passing the ball to the right target.
