    Last night when we got down late in the 1st quarter the camera panned over to the bench where Lance was frustrated about something (I assume they way we we're playing), and while he was talking to Roy and Paul they were just staring off in space looking like lost puppies. Lance seems like he hates to lose while some of our softer players seem like they care more about how they're playing and what the stat sheets gonna look like after a game.
    Or maybe they just disagreed with what he was saying and didn't want to start something? Or maybe he had been yapping at them too much and they were tuning him out? Or maybe he has bad breath and they were protecting their sense of smell?

    Don't take any of that too seriously.

    It's not really a problem of giving him the keys. It's more of riding into the momentum. I think Frank should give players more mins in a specific game where they are playing so well. If Lance is playing poorly, limit his limits. Otherwise, give him more in that game and let him finish it.

    I'm not. I don't even necessarily think I'm right. I'm sure they want to win badly, but their actions when they're not playing well makes it seem that way.

    there are two reasons why Lance will become our best player IMO, he is the only one who can create his own shot, and he has the killer instinct, he is the only one on the team who has it, he wants the ball, he wants to take the game winning shot, he wants to crush his opponent. I can see Lance being a 19 ppg and 9 apg guy if we start him at point in a few years. He is a better PG than Hill to be honest. I see Paul George as a Joe Johnson type player. His cieling will be as a second option (hopefully to Lance) and can average 16-17 ppg
    Lance is the only active player on the team with that killer instinct, but there is another. Unfortunately he is out for several months with a knee injury...

    Agreed. My concern though is that if mistakes are made he is kept out for too long. He has to be able to learn from poor play and how to properly adjust.
