I'm not perfect and neither are you.

That's great news DC WANTS to be the leader and is really making an effort to become that.
Having the same coach for once will do nothing but help him.

I think he could become a near all star point guard in the future. But, with the competition it'll be tough for him to make it as an all star in the east. (John Wall, Derrick Rose, Kyrie Irving, and others)
I thought it was pretty interesting that DC was the guy organizing the team workouts during the lockout. I really hope to see him develop and be the guy for this team.

The high-school tie with Jeff Pendergraph is interesting. Since we signed JP for two years, I'd say Collison isn't going anywhere.
Interesting."His leadership's been great ever since the lockout," Coach Frank Vogel said. "After the lockout, all the guys came back talking about how D.C. was the guy organizing our team for workouts and it's carried through training camp and onto the court. He's asked me for the freedom to call some plays, which I've given him, to sort of run his own team.
"The first thing is he wants to do it. Not a lot of point guards really want that responsibility and he wants it, and it's a sign of good leadership."

And, yes, that is a less than subtle pointing out of Granger.
I have to agree with Anthem that while Danny may not be an alpha dog, vocal leader, he is a great team player and can show our young guys how to be professionals and work hard.
But, I do think that things like this are great for showing who will be that guy on the court that every team needs. DC seems to be an active vocal leader, and it certainly looks like David West is as well.
There is definitely a place for both types...in fact, a need for both types of leaders on a team.

Many thought Granger would be the one getting the team together for lockout period workouts. That made sense as he has been anointed the "face of the franchise" by so many. Turns out he was not the one. That sort of thing is leadership. It did not surprise me that he was not doing this, but I think it will surprise many.
I'll take the "not a team player" a step further. Many feel that D Jones is not a team guy. I think we will find out that he is.

This article and to see his quotes, makes me a much bigger fan. His mind is in right place, thats a big deal to me.
Who's surprised? Danny worked out with several guys one-on-one over the summer (and I personally think mentoring is a kind of leadership), but his natural bent isn't to gather a big group and try to coach them. He probably would if he needed to, but why do that when somebody's already got it?
There's not enough data here to condemn Danny, or anyone else. If Collison had already contacted guys, why would Danny try to butt in? If nobody did anything, then sure throw Danny under the bus. That would show that he refused to step up when leadership was needed. But if Collison's got something going, what exactly is it that Danny's failing to do? Don't criticize him for not stepping into a void that doesn't exist.
