Your Locker Room Speech

It is Tuesday night, 6:30pm, and the Portland Trailblazers have assembled in the locker room. White jerseys with scarlet and black trim drape over massive frames, covering beating hearts and clenched muscles. The tension runs high as these boys-come-men struggle to forget possibly the worst defeat of their lives.

You are Coach Nate McMillan. Veteran of many NBA years and plenty of playoff games. You're standing at the center of this room, watching your players go through their pregame rituals like they have all year, but you know something is different. Slowly every eye turns to you. From the comparatively veteran Joel Pryzbilla to the deer-in-the-headlights rookie Nicolas Batum, they are waiting to hear what you have to say.

This is your moment. Put your words in the mind and mouth of Nate McMillan. What do you say to this team to help ease their fears and send them onto the court like a roaring lion, instead of a whimpering house cat?

I'll post my speech as the first comment below.
