    You don't know tired until you're stationed on a ship only to realize that for 6-9 months straight you don't get "weekends" off and you have to wake up every morning to work at 0530.

    They get an entire day of rest in between games. A day of rest on a deployment is a blessing.

    These guys were probably in better shape now than I was back then. They don't have any excuses. Access to better care and physical therapy and treatment than I had overseas, trust me.

    I really hate hearing shit like this.

    Rodman did the stairmaster for an hour after every game.

    Enough said.


    These guys are elite athletes and you're asking them to play 40-45 minutes of Playoff basketball with at least one day in between for rest.

    It's unfair to compare Lillard to an ATG like Rodman though, there aren't too many people in history with his kind of mindset. To go from a guy who couldn't really score or pass to an All-NBA level player that makes the HOF. Dennis was all effort/hard work. 15 rebounds a game in arguably the greatest decade for big men in league history as a 6-6 guy.

    He played very selfishly and just downright stupidly. Driving into multiple defenders like Dray and Klay.

    If his shot is not falling he's kind of useless. No defense, turnovers and not great at making plays for others.
