Bosstown just created a thread with an apology to Sully - I feel I owe Courtney Lee one of my own!

Up until about 3 weeks ago I was heavily on the "trade Lee" bandwagon.  His shot wasn't fall but that didn't concern me - I was dissapointed by his effort, his inconsistent defense and his tendancy to turn the ball over every time he touched it.

For about the last 8-10 games Lee has played much better, and ever since Bradley returne he has been truly outstanding - at least on par with (if not better than) what I hoped he would be.

So Courtney, I hereby apologise for not having your back before. Keep it up.

Whole teams playing great. I love it. The way this team has been playing, we can honestly take anyone in the league. And yep, Lee has been a big part of that. He's discovered his role.

Lee looks like one of those guys who is so much more comfortable coming off the bench.

I'll co sign this...he and Bradley are a good tandem to have, as opposed to being bitter about it he's gotten better with Avery starting, kudos

I think so as well regarding the bench role.

I think the return of AB really helped this team mentally. 

They were struggling and I think they felt like they had tried everything and just didn't have it in them.  It's like the return of AB made allowed them to turn over a new leaf mentally and start fresh, and ever since the first win it's like they have suddently realised how good they can be if they put their mind to it.

I think AB's defense inspured them a lot too because when he started pressing on defense good things started to happen, and when others realised that then they (Lee, Terry, Green) starting pressuring as well. 

Seriously though, Lee has been spectacular in our last two games.
