He wants to win - that is his No. 1 priority. He is a leader for this team in a different way. He is not loud, verbal or demonstrative, but he leads by gutting it out and fighting for rebounds. He can score from the outside, in the paint and on runners. He has emerged as a major leader for us during this stretch of games.
You see a lot of good coaches just coaching their players, making changes and trying to help their teams win. I see Larry Brown sitting guys down. Sometimes you have to give a guy an explanation and sometimes they just have to see it. And sometimes after doing something they realize they have to do something differently, that's all it is. I admire those coaches and I want to be a good coach.
We know we're short on pieces, ... We're trying to hold down the fort. Actually, this is beyond trying to hold down the fort because this is probably, really, who we've got. We're talented enough to win some games. As long as we have Gil and Larry and some bigs Brendan Haywood, Brown, Thomas, Michael Ruffin we have some hope.
