[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Jamal Crawford or JR Smith or Jason Richardson? : Yes, I fall for the crap! I believe that focus and attitude make a difference and veteran leadership makes a difference. KG's doesn't have the ability he used to have but he has the heart and desire and that teaches younger/rebel type players how to behave. Yes, I think KG's attitude and approach keeps players in line and I believe Ray's work ethic shows younger players what hard work can accomplish. Not every bad boy will listen (JR Smith, for example won't listen to ANYONE), but others do listen. Sorry, Karl, but I have to disagree with you on this particular point.

Just curious but who exactly do you feel KG is keeping in line?? The implication is the fear of KG makes players do whats right and tow the line... Who are we talkin about???
Baby? Yea, he cried some time ago, now hes mouthin off about how easy it is to cover Amare... how hes starter material and so on....
Rondo?? Tell me what KG is doing and what ROndo is being kept in line with.. just a few short weeks ago much of the banter was what a spoiled brat he is, taking games off etc..
JON, PP... care to explain??
Its nice to have that image in your head but in reality, it carries some weight but not to the extent you think. So without KG keeping the players (dont know who ur referring to) in line, the house comes tumbling down.. Thats some indictment of your head coach... thought that was one of his primary jobs.
The team can do that job... if they all on the same page, and thats the only way it really works.
I certainly can agree with your point that leading by example sets the tone and KG/Ray fit the bill for that... it helps but do you think all the other players are doing what Ray & KG do? Nope, they arent... nobody else getting TV time for showing up game day hours early shooting 500 jumpers... thats Ray all by himself.. Nice example he sets but nobody else is doing it..
I just wish I knew who KG was keeping in line on this team..
