Tao Te Wolves, Ch. 46: Workhorses, not Weapons

Random, wistful setup (it could be better, I'll readily admit):

Opponents shooting 47% from 3-point-range the last 5 games.

Defensive rating on the up-swing. O-rating on the down-swing.

Corey Brewer wants to see some swagger. We need to see some swagger. How shall we do that, Corey?

A Signature Win. I can only presume that such a win will come from Hard Friggin' Work, rather than finesse. Defense. D Dragon.

Bust through some walls and see your opponent as a human -- an equal: not a threat, not an enemy -- who can see you, as well. Yes, guys. They can see you. They know your trends. Respect theirs, too.

Know the trends, but act on the instant. Talk, talk, talk, and talk some more. No need to levitate or bend the laws of physics. Just play like a fluid solid -- a team. Rotate. Rebound. D DRAGON.

We need to bust out our Trucks and Tractors, and let the Weapons take care of themselves.

Keep Them Below 100!!!! Team D!!

D DRAGON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When a country is in harmony with the Tao,
the factories make trucks and tractors.
When a country goes counter to the Tao,
warheads are stockpiled outside the cities.

There is no greater illusion than fear,
no greater wrong than preparing to defend yourself,
no greater misfortune than having an enemy.

Whoever can see through all fear
will always be safe.
