The culture part Coach Walton talked about, being together for the win and the loss, putting team success ahead of individual playtime is the best thing for me to hear. Especially since we've been speculating so much about Buddy Hield's benching incident and how he's taking it.
And yes, giving credit where credit is due, Vlade has been vocal from the get-go about getting the right type of players for the culture, and some of us laughed it off for us shying away from elite players who might be a headcase. This is the fruit we are seeing, if the team does have the culture of sticking with one another.
Luke is a really good coach. Don’t @ me. BTW, does anybody else ever get the feeling we could easily sign Lonzo or Ingram if they ever became available? It’s neither here nor there, cause they won’t hit UFA, but I feel like Luke can recruit former players, no problem.
