I say we will bring another ship back to the Palace. A title is never a given but man, are we the team to beat. We have played at the highest level this year early and late. Our competitors have slipped a bit. Only Dallas has improved. Teams now say that they are happy when they can PLAY with us. Teams fear us. We are in their heads. Even Shaq had said that they need a near perfect game to beat us. That puts a lot of pressure on our opponents. We have an offense--finally. It is a modern NBA offense in the era of three ball. No more pounding it in just to be pounding it in. No more work the clock just to work the clock. We can score early and late in the clock. Tay is now a beast--teams have real problems handling him. Rip is near superstar levels now in his offensive game. Sheed can score from anywhere. We do need to get Ben his touches--I agree with him. But we don't go back to post up Ben--not like last year. Do we have a bench? How about a starter anywhere else, Antonio McDyss? How about instant offense, Tony Delk, the second coming of Vinnie Johnson. Can we still lock down? Rip is a first rate defender now. Tay is back. Ben is feeling good and can single-handedly wreck an offense. Sheed is on of the best defenders down low in the league. Mr. Dumars has put together a juggernaut that will show its dominance. Delk and Hunter can put the screws on defensively from the second unit. I just want to sit back and enjoy this team and watch it make history. To heck with all that Arroyo and Darko talk. Why it didn't happen last year--too many distractions. This is the year that was supposed to follow the championship. Like Joe says, these guys are special so lets enjoy this championship run. What do others think?
