    What's been wrong with Josh Hart? Seems like he's been limited since the Summer League.

    Hart was healthy throughout his college career. I'm thinking we're being overly cautious.

    ^^^ I thought he twisted an ankle in Summer League. Must be hammy because an ankle wouldn't take this long. Hope it's not a bad tear that is a season long issue.

    Boy if Randle becomes a competent defender... things change pretty rapidly if he gets his head straight on that end.

    Big, big, big if, but still. That's the sort of change that would keep him around.

    He said all the right things yesterday, so it’s a start. Talked about having incredible physical gifts and needing to be consistent to put them to good use, having that aggressive mentality and not losing focus. It’s obvious stuff, but if he actually does it, yeah, game changer.

    Yeah we've heard the positive talk now for 3 years seeing no results from it so I'm having a hard time getting excited about it. Still, all the news so far has been positive. I'm cautiously optimistic. We'll see on Saturday. I expect a sloppy game, but I expect us to have outrageous energy on the defensive end.

    He's only played 2. Shirley you don't count the broken leg against him.

    I do and I don't. I do in that he should have gained a little more wisdom, but I understand he's still very young.

    But I was talking more about the team in general. We heard almost all the same stuff last year: new energy, feeling great, media frenzy, blah blah. I feel great too and I feel like a corner has been turned, but I'm not counting on anything until I see it on the floor. Show me the product before I start buying it.

    Yeah. I’m here with him but hopefully @tada is right and this is the year he really pulls it all together.
