BUILT, NOT BOUGHT

Last night I was feeling pretty tired and decided to hit the record button midway through the 3rd quarter and catch up this morning.
As if it needed further testimony, Comcast receivers suck. Damn thing didn't even record.
So I get to sit through all the boring **** and then miss the fighting and exciting finish.
A minute left to go in the 3rd, and the game gets really interesting to watch. I wanted Granger to hit those 3's, and the team to win this game just to shut the Phoenix crowd up. Even Jimmy got into the bad call of a foul on Danny by getting a tech. Loved to see the fire in the team! It's easier to endure a loss with this type of effort.
AND for UB no negativism about Jimmy. I liked that blue n gold stripe tie Jimmy had on last night, he should wear it more often. Did anyone see McBob and a couple of others players on the bench talking and smiling. Chris or Quinn said Jimmy was smiling and talking too!!!
It warmed my heart to see O'Brien give a strong high-five to Brandon Rush (I think as he was walking back to the bench for a timeout).
I saw that too. McBob, Troy and TJ were all laughing with Jim like good buddies. There is still alot of comraderie on the team and the players don't hate the coach or have given up on him like we have, or like we think they have. I think he has a good relationship with his players.
I still want him gone after this season.
But I was very encouraged to see the minutes given to McBob and AJ and not in garbage time. If we can keep feeding Roy in the post, see what we have in McBob with some solid minutes and play AJ alot the rest of the year I will not say one bad word about Jim the rest of the season.

He may be a nice guy, but body language can give away a lot.
I noticed it during summer league, and thought perhaps Tyler and AJ were not sure of the "unknown" maybe being a little "shy" or what have you. But when O'brien was talking to the two of them, instead of the "arm aound the player" move, AJ and Tyler would typically be a good 15 feet away from him.
Last night, JOB tried to put his arm around Watson, Watson stayed as far away from him as possible, and actually continued to move towards the left as O'brien kept trying to step closer to him.
