Anyone else concerned that this team is only a .500 team since the first road-heavy month of the season? Where has our "Smashmouth"/ "Disprove the Doubters" mentality gone? Just when this team started building "Believeability", they have been gone out & been average. Almost every Big win is followed by Bad losses, Home losses, Multi-losses.
Anyone wish we would see something/ hear something a little different from Frank? I have yet heard him call out our effort, lack/loss of season-starting identity. The "Mr. Rogers/ up-beat spinning the ball on a toothbrush kid routine" does not get it done. I'm not saying he needs to start calling out individuals in public, but calling out the "Team" might get their attention. Let's remember, Frank is just now 1 yr worth of games into is coaching career, the honeymoon over, & this is when he needs to get this team focused day-in/ day-out without excuses. So far, he has not.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not jumping off a ledge, but winning by 15 vs. Miami & losing by 15 to a depleted NJ team is far from focused, far from acceptable! While I get we are not the only team who is inconsistent, but look what CHI is doing w/o D.Rose! We have been relatively healthy, and have only added talent since the start of the season, but I'm not seeing us get better, are you?. If we want to be "Elite" as we say, we should compare ourselves (our effort) to CHI, not an inconsistent ORL & others. I don't see us doing that - Do you?
Where are we?
