And we're blown out in the final minutes of Game #7 vs. the Knicks in '94 if McKey doesn't hit back-to-back 3FGA's.
I continue to wonder if there is something more to the Popeye speech. I recall a guy that had no interest in individual accolades, only in doing what his coach wanted. Now, I've never taken Larry Brown's statements to the press to be the actual truth. I believe everything he said publicly had an agenda to it, and whatever he said to the players privately remained private.
Which is why I just disagree with most of the vilifying of players if we don't know exactly what the coach is asking them to do.
We also like to pretend that we know where every player is supposed to be defensively. We don't know, of course. And I suspect we often blame somebody for being out of position when they were already covering for somebody else first.
