I've missed the last two preseason games, but I've read some encouraging stuff.

I know that Harden & Paul need to gel, but I'm still concerned about overuse of both. Hopefully they'll stagger their minutes well.

I need Ryno to get his swagger back.
He won't be as crucial as he was last season but his skillset is still very valuable to the way this team plays.

He just needs a little hot streak.

True.

It's not just about making shots but having the courage and confidence to continue to take the shots the offense gives him.
He was great at that during the season last year. Make or miss Ryno would let it fly.

But in the playoffs he let the misses (and granted there were a lot of them) affect him and his confidence crashed and burned. Then he started passing up shots which only compounded the problem.

Anderson is at his best when he's not overthinking just balling.

PJ Tucker isn't shy about using his fouls.
