    Our vets so far are missing more time early on than they have in the past. I am wondering if this is not because they are having more physical ailments, rather because they feel more confident with the bench guys and want the bench guys to get more minutes to integrate into the team, so they are willing to stay in the trainers room and miss some games that in the past years they would not have, even though they may have had similar annoying, but not serious ailments.

    Having everyone under contract with no FAs this offseason helps a lot too.

    perhaps age has a little to do with this.

    Your magnanimous overstatement is about as fined tuned as many of my friends, who think the key solution for the oil crisis is driving their Honda hybrids.

    The pistons where never a quick team and certain rule changes has changed the slower foot camels into a Terry Southern's chant: It's the hump! It's the hump!

    In a hyper-accelerated game where superstars (usually playing the 3-4 position) are now being challenged for equal playing time; actually, they are finally getting their due. We are speaking of your movement gatekeepers: those that are active in holding themselves apart from the rest and by being so, intersect as a catalyst for the system. A Boozer needs his Williams; et. al. Extend this concept to every successful-succeeding team and you might be on to something.




    Here's another twist on this concept: suppose you are a software engineer or better yet, just a designer. All problems solving, on the road to creation, is understanding patterns. A Cuban should be able to understand this more than most:
    Design Principle: Identify the aspects of your application that vary and separate them from what stays the same. ​
    In other words, if you've got some aspect of your code that is changing, say with every new requirement, then you know you've got a behavior that needs to be pulled out and separated from all the stuff that doesn't chance. ​
    Here's another way to think about this principle: take the parts that vary and encapsulate them, so that later you can alter or extend the parts that vary without affecting those that don't.​
    As simple as this concept is, it forms the basis for almost every design pattern. All patterns provide a way to let some part of the system vary independently of all other parts (emphasis in the original).​

    You don't think it has anything to do with being overplayed while injured by a panicking coach who has no view of the bigger picture? Second year in a row Sheed has been hurt grinding out wins in games 1-10 of the year? First he was just sitting out a half. That was 2 1/2 games ago. Look how much Dysse has been playing since he's been back. Will you be surprised if he starts having knee problems soon?
