Say what you will, Curry will not be afraid to deal with this team, emphasizing that lockdown, bring it in here if you want, prepare to be slammed on your arse defense this year. Based on the article mentioned below, conditioning will not be a problem this year, and if you didn't come to play and show no motivation either in games or practice, your role is dispensible and someone is waiting in line to take your place. _____________________________________________________________ Article from True Blue Pistons below: Friday’s practice ended with a Bataan death march of a drill. Curry put 10 minutes on the clock and put the Pistons – 14 of them; Wallace sat out the last hour of another three-hour practice with routine soreness – through a full-court drill that would have had Kenyan marathoners begging for mercy. Up and down the court they went, two balls always in play, running three-man fast break drills in both directions. One among them would get the layup attempt, while the two trailers would simultaneously receive passes and shoot wing jump shots. The goal: 250 baskets in 10 minutes, racing the clock and the limits of human endurance. It is, at its heart, a conditioning drill, of course, but it incorporates basketball skills so that players must perform despite crushing fatigue – handling the ball without a misstep and shooting jump shots through weary legs and heavy arms.
