We are twelve games in the season and I can tell you right now that this is going to be a long NBA season. I have said this from the moment I landed in Dallas...this team was built to win from start to finish. You can tell everyone, from the top down, has high expectations and the work ethic from the team reflects that. We have had some interesting moments already in a very young NBA season, and we are built to win, filled with vets BUT it takes time to really come together and grow as one.

For me, I have to stay patient. I know there are a lot of new guys, a lot of new faces, and I am the newest of everyone because I wasn’t in the organization’s original plans. One of the assistant coaches told me to stay patient because they are still trying to figure out how to use me. They view me as a weapon, but trying to mix me in is still a work-in-progress. It is my job to stay ready and help this team win anyway possible. It is almost like I am a college walk on with this team. Actually, I am the walk on with this team. Thats crazy when you think about it....

Despite how new a lot of the guys are, we do have great chemistry...we are working on our team synergy. The definition of synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts.....I had to Google that one up lol, but this reminded me of  "Voltron" the cartoon TV series from back in the days. You guys remember Voltron? In this team, we have to come together...TO FORM VOLTRON ;)

"Ready To Form Voltron! Activate Interlock! Dynatherms Connected! Infracells Up! Megathrusters Are Go! Let's Go Voltron Force! Form feet and legs. Form arms and torso. And, I'll form the head!"

The 5 lions form into Voltron...
