Why exactly is Barbosa a problem? He hasn't been part of the rotation for weeks. Green? Bass? Have you ever seen Jeff Green and Brandon Bass laugh and joke about anything ever? I haven't.
I don't know who is taking the losses lightly Jeff Green is the first name that comes to mind. Maybe Bass. Barbosa.
Those are my guesses.
My first guesses would be Paul Pierce and Jason Terry.
Pierce always seems devastated after the losses.
I really don't think this is really the issue with the team tho. I think a lot has to do with Doc talking about how guys don't realize that its hard to win an NBA against anyone in the league. It feels like guys go out there and casually play assuming that its good enough to win. But on any given night if Isiah Thomas or John Salmons plays harder than you, they are certainly good enough to beat you.
To me it feels like Lee, Green, Bass, Terry are just so passive. They aren't trying tonmess up and just kind of blending in. Even tho I wasn't huge fans if them being passive was never an issue for guys like Pietrus, Dooling, Nate, Baby, Sheed, among others. I mean even Sasha and quis weren't that passive.
Bradley isn't passive which should help but yeah to me these guys just haven't figured out how to be consistently good. They either are trying to be overly aggressive with no flow ir they just sit back and swing the ball around.
That's why Bradley will be refreshing and why Barbosa and Wilcox can be so refreshing sometimes.
