someone compared it to playing tennis with someone who is way better than you. they know they can win and they exert just enough energy to do it. of course, sometimes that comes back to bite you on the butt. It would be interesting to see what would have happened with this team if blake, farmar and henry hadn't gone down. i think they'd be a very entertaining, very gutty .500 team. add kobe and nash, and you'd probably have a very frustrating, very contentious .550 team.
