    This season is going to be Grimp complaining about how bad we stink due to our W-L record without taking any circumstance into consideration.

    Nonsense. I just want us to have a season like the Hawks had last season. Minus Horford, they did quite well because they had shooters. I figure if we structure our team similar to that, we can at least get 8th seed and upset someone even in a PG-less season.

    As terrible as this injury was....

    I do think PG will benefit mentally from being forced to spend this time observing from a distance. If you sort of put yourself in his shoes prior to that incident... he was very active in the basketball world --- as a participant. From NBA obligations, to sponsorship obligations, community obligations, free-lance obligations, it was pretty easy to imagine PG being someone who never had time to stop and pull back within himself. Sometimes that close-up, non-stop perspective hinders growth from a high-level.

    He seems like a smart guy. I had an injury to my ankle that kept me from being able to play in my late-teens, and that down-time gave me a lot of time to recoup my energy, rest my mind, sit back and watch some games and on TV and live. It was only a 6-month period, but I could feel myself putting things together in my mind even while I sat there not able to run or anything. And when I finally was able to get up and moving and back in shape... it translated almost immediately to the court. A lot of things all of a sudden made sense to me that didn't before. Whereas I was a mostly perimeter shooter before... all of a sudden I had a sense on how to handle the ball better, where to position myself for rebounds better, came in with a new-found mid-range game where I actually welcomed contact, learned how to use leverage and balance. My game really, really expanded due to me being forced off the court for awhile. Even if I was nowhere near where I was physically before, I was a much better player. Once the conditioning returned, I new how to better protect my body and be more effective on the court. The game slowed down a lot in my mind, and all of a sudden it dawned on me that you can be very effective playing basketball without being a physical freak, although it helps.

    I think this could be a similar situation for PG. He's already a physical freak. Now he can sort of "bolt on" the mental advantage.

    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.

    And the second we go on a losing streak (like the Hawks did) you will go crazy and propose 15 trades per day.

    What makes you think he wouldn't already be proposing 15 trades per day?
