After the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the 76ers to pull their lackluster record to 7-9, the Wolves broadcast team conducted an interview with point guard Mike James. It was your typical post-game chat; nothing really special. But amongst the usual cliche’s an congratulations, was a comment by Mike James that really stuck with me.

He said, “We really are a good team.”
Now to most, if not all, of you reading this, that seems like a fairly benign comment. I mean, that’s what players are supposed to say. Nobody that wants to keep out of their coach’s dog house, would say they were a bad team, right? But it seemed to me like it was more than just a politically correct statement. It seemed like Mike James actually believed it.
