If he's not causing chemistry issues in the locker room, his play is causing issues on the team.
I said before, Danny and West are supposed to be the team's leaders. And Danny and David are completely disregarding the defensive side of the ball for their offense.
He's been, absolutely pathetic defensively - and rebounding. More so than any other player. But Quinn said he wanted more shots on offense?
I liked David at first, and maybe what I'm seeing on the court is simply a reaction to something going on in the locker room, instead of the cause. But if he brought some defensive intensity to the game, I always figured the younger guys would follow.
If he's supposed to be a leader, why hasn't DWest put his arm around Roy and tried to give him a little confidence? I've seen Dahntay do that for every single one of the bench players. Heck, I've seen AJ do that for Lance and Tyler. What are Danny and DWest doing? Why hasn't he picked up his energy, his defense, his rebounding, instead of being the worst offender?
So sure, maybe he is a calming force in the locker room. Maybe it's one of the other starters...but I'd expect him to take charge and be more of a leader instead of..what we are seeing.
As much as we can't win with Roy pouting and PG off in LaLa land, the team really starts with David and Danny. Our vets. And when those two aren't defending, aren't rebounding, aren't bringing energy - everything that is supposed to be the essence of smashball, I have to point at them first.
