Flip – has to convince this team they can win without Ben. Yeah, they’re professionals, they know what they can do, etc., but they’ve lost a big part of the team. If Flip was holding back last year, that has to stop and he has to make this team his. I believe he will try and I believe the team will respond. Tay – took a step backwards last year, maybe a contract honeymoon, maybe never found his role in the new offense. Must shoulder a much bigger rebounding burden. Time for some dirty work. CB – has to sustain the pretty amazing progress he made last year in assists and turnovers, but has to stop the shooting slide – he must shoot the ball better. Dice – needs to go from a 20 MPG guy to a 25-28 MPG guy, and get relatively more productive. Defino – assuming he gets the chance, has to either put up or shut up – offense, defense, jumpers, drives – he has to become nearly as important off the bench as Dice. Linz – has to remain healthy for the full run Everybody else has to pick up a bit, but not as much as 1-6. I think they can all do it. I don’t think it’s a question of skills. It’s a question of turning back the clock to when they felt they had to scrap for everything. If the sense of entitlement ends (for the players, not Flip, who I don’t think ever had one), then the wins will come.
