Just an observation and something that would be entertaining to see more of. Obviously wins are what counts but I'm just stating something I've noticed.
The bold part is exactly why it doesn't happen as much. Derrick is a very rare superstar that is mature beyond his young age and he truly wants to WIN. It is also the fact that this team is coached by a guy that I am sure has zero tolerance for B.S. and you have a team that couldn't care less if they make the highlight reels, they just want to win games and Championships.
