Leadership and Roy

Quick article from Sept about Roy/Miller being on the same page:  "Said Roy: "You know, last year I would say I was kind of spoiled and I wanted things to be my way, whereas now I'm a little more understanding that I have to help change on the court to help him fit more, too. It can't just be 'How can everybody help Brandon."' 



What happend to all that "I want to be a better leader" stuff?  Brandon went to a psychologist in order to learn how to be exactly that; a Leader.  Leaders are formed when times are tough.  It's easy to "lead" a team when things are going well.  I have loved BRoy, but I am getting sick of these flip flopping comments.  One minute he's talking about reaching out to others and learning how to work without the ball more, the next he's asking for things to return to the way they were two years ago.  One minute he's saying he had watched Miller's game last season when Roy missed 14 games and was learning how they could play together, and the next he is complaining about the surrounding personnel and calling Miller (although not directly) a "slow guy".  LEADERS do not behave this way.  

Forget the fact that right now Brandon is simply not a player who should be demanding that the rest of his team conform to his playing style (very very sad, but painfully true).... even when he was healthy, the team only got so far with his preferred style... WAS ONLY GOING TO GET SO FAR with his preferred playing style.  his lack of acceptance of this fact is incredibly frustrating.  
Maybe BRoy was never a good Leader.  Maybe there's a difference between being the best player on the team, being a Star... and being a real Leader.  Maybe we're just really seeing that now.
