When the Superfriends got together in Miami, one of the many criticisms that they faced was that they'd be too busy partying and goofing off to actually do work. They had a bit of a rocky start, true enough, but at the end of the day, they still play hard and have put together a tremendous team chemistry.
Meanwhile, our pitch to bring together some (aging though they may be) stars along with Dwight who is the consensus best Center in the game things keep going wrong, and there is virtually no consistency game in game out. I have to believe at this point it is a chemistry issue more than anything. The Lakers in 2007-2008 until 2010 or so had great chemistry, they all collectively seemed like they wanted to be playing basketball together. Not entirely sure where it started to fall apart, obviously it's an almost entirely different team today, but the point is, we have a disparate group of journeymen and aged stars supplemented with rookies and scrubs.
The team feels a little alien to me in ways, but I think they also feel alien to each other.
Which, arguably, is one of the cornerstones for why Phil Jackson is the GOAT coach, his coaching style was largely built around getting players to work together and feel good about playing with each other without overtly having to spell it out like that.
