The Right Way to Cry

I insist that you watch the video of yesterday's press conference in which the Florida foursome of Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Taurean Green, and Corey Brewer said goodbye to college life.

Billy Donovan is totally correct that most players don't bond with each other like that, and to me there is no chance that those bonds aren't the backbone of the team's excellence. Many of them weren't even blue-chip recruits, yet they became a team that didn't even come close to a loss in two NCAA tournaments. This is teamwork at its best, and I hope these guys will take it as something of a challenge to bring at least some of this camaraderie to the NBA with them. No, most teams don't have anything like this, but some have a little, and more is better.
