"I can prove it, and I'm going to do it: We're going to make the playoffs. "We're going to do whatever it takes to make the playoffs this year. Once one player sees how hard you're working, the rest of the team will follow. We might start off slow, but we're going to finish good."
The only thing that he has to remember is that MJ couldn't even lead them to the playoffs and couldn't motivate them (mainly Stackhouse and Kwame, who seemed to have no work ethic at all) with his strong work ethic. I don't understand why he thinks they will listen to him and he will lead them to the playoffs. Sounds like he is a little over confident to me.
Yeah, I think they will probably make the playoffs but it will be a struggle and think it is way to early unless you are the Nets, Kings, Lakers, Mavs, or Spurs to be guaranteeing playoff birth.
