I think what Terry needs is freedom. I think he works best off a leash. Kind of like Rondo. I think Terry is trying to fit in, and that's great, but he needs to be himself,and I'm not sure he's been given the chance to. Here's a clip of Terry at his best, and some comments from yesterday's practice.

"Oh, that's frustrating," he said. "But again, I take that squarely upon my shoulders, and this is a new week. I'm looking to go this week and hopefully we can get three consecutive games of outscoring [the opponent's] bench, and we'll see what happens. But that's the goal, and we try to take it game-by-game, but hopefully we'll take it week-by-week, and last week was a disappointing one for us, but this is another opportunity and that's the beauty of it."

"No question, we thought it would be a lot smoother, but, again, it's not as easy as you think a lot of the time," said Terry. "It's good. It's good that we're going through it, and what we're going to do is look back upon this journey and say that we had to go through something. This is definitely challenging. I know for me, myself, I got higher expectations for my performance, but I'll get there."

"I just think everyone is starting to figure out that, to be a good team, you have to actually work at it," said Rivers. "And it's hard work. You just don't show up because you have good names on a piece of paper and become good. You have to work at it, and you have to work hard at it. And it's exhausting."

"Again, it's a work in progress," said Terry. "I'm going to stay optimistic. I'm a scorer. I'm going to figure it out. Believe me when I tell you, I'm going to continue to shoot the ball and I'm going to take advantage of every opportunity."

I like to hear the guys facing up to it. They don't seem to be ducking responsibility

Their not, but I. Want to hear them when they win 5 or 6 games in a row.
