The NBA is a game of streaks. Always has been...

always will be.

It's funny to think about all the times I've come in here to vent about what needs to be adjusted and what needs to stay the same. Throughout the years I've seen players struggle, players wine and even players beg. With all of that in the history books I ought to know that it will happen at some point every year.

But oh no, not this year.

This year the team seems like a team that just wants to ball and give it their all every night. I love that about them and let's make no mistake about it, that's why this team started out 6-1 . Don't get me wrong though, this team has so much to work on before they can be considered contenders.

Some of the biggest problems have to come from the smallest things, such as being beaten by a single screen on defense that ends with the opposing team scoring a tremendously easy basket. Another would be just simply put in Nate's words "We didn't hit shots". You have to execute the offense with the goal mainly being to make a basket, and I don't care if it's the most awkward shot in the world, take the smartest shot possible and execute. One missed shot is all it takes to start pilling up more and more.

Rebounding is also another key issue, with Marcus Camby out there still shouldn't be an excuse. Don't let the other team know in the back of their minds that "if we stop them from making shots, we're going the other way", put pressure on them and make them hesitant to run back on offense.

There will be plenty of ups and downs as there always is with every season. Don't take the 2-5 record out of the last 7 games to the bank quite yet. There should be a turn around here somewhere soon. Hold on.
