Default Music to my ears!!!

I loved reading Roy's comments below:


In three seasons in the NBA, the Trail Blazers forward hasn't left much to be desired. But with his team in the running for a playoff berth, Roy is making a point to lead his team by doing more than scoring - even if it comes at the expense of his teammates' feelings.

''I was kind of getting after them a little bit,'' Roy said. ''It's getting to the point where I don't really care if I hurt someone's feelings out there or if I step on somebody's toes. This is bigger than one guy now, so if you're letting the team down, I'm going to let you know now.''

One thing I'm loving, is Oden's attitude. First he shoved Ray Allen when the Blazers beat the Celtics. Then he pushed Lebron. I love that tough attitude, that he isn't going to take any sh*t from anyone. That's so key for a championship team, Oden needs to be mean.

AGREED!!! He needs a "chip on his shoulder" attitude - at times this season, reports I've read matched up with his stern appearance have had me concerned for the young man - depression is a very serious issue and he has a lot of pressure on him.
