I agree that the team is half baked, and that ball handling has been an issue, but I don't think there is a team that isn't flawed. I would agree that the sure bet is that they won't win it, but I definitely think the talent is there to do so. I have said that from Day One, and I'll stick to it. Up until last week's poll they were the ONLY team that had been in the top 10 all year long.
Last night, for the first time in over a month, they played a game like they should have been playing all year long. Finally, their shots started falling, and in the second half, after building a more workmanlike 10 point halftime lead, they rained down 3's and slashed to the bucket they way you'd expect against an inferior opponent, bulging out to a 30+ point lead before clearing the bench. Trimble seems to have regained his stroke and confidence, thank god.
Now, see if those shots fall like that against Indiana this weekend, and maybe people will regain some confidence in them.
The time has come for a centrist political party. Rational Americans are not comfortable with extreme views to the left or to the right, and our current parties have no intentions of ever abandoning their ever increasing distance from sane, reasonable thinking.
