5 mg original brand cialis One  of the great topics for debate when it comes to team sports is how much does team chemistry play in making a difference between a winning or losing team. 5 mg original brand cialis  There are many who believe team chemistry is a bunch of bullshit and it’s mostly those in the sabermetric segment of baseball fans who take this position and feel that folks like me who believe in this part of the game are relics of the past and that whether you’re BFF’s with teammates or a big time snob, 5 mg original brand cialis as long as you produce on the field that’s what counts. 5 mg original brand cialis In some ways they’re right, 5 mg original brand cialis Jeff Francouer had a million dollar smile and a ten cent approach at the plate while he was with the Mets.  Barry Bonds was one miserable prick in the Giants clubhouse but he is still considered one the best baseball players of all time (I’ll leave the PED discussion for another time) but there is still something about having a group of people who have the same goal, 5 mg original brand cialis winning and will do whatever has to be done to achieve that goal. 5 mg original brand cialis When you have that collective mind set, 5 mg original brand cialis I feel you have a greater shot of being a winning team than if you have a team that is just a collection of talent who worry about their 2 for 4 day and their statistical resume than winning games.

5 mg original brand cialis I bring this up because of four teams I’ve watched over the last month or so, 5 mg original brand cialis two teams that have that “team chemistry” one that doesn’t and one I think will have it.

5 mg original brand cialis I’m a Boston Celtics fan and if there is a team that thrives on chemistry and is the best case study on the subject it’s the C’s. 5 mg original brand cialis For the bulk of his career, 5 mg original brand cialis Paul Pierce was the best the Celtics had to offer but as the losses piled up with exception of a trip to the NBA Finals in 2001, 5 mg original brand cialis Pierce was ready to bolt Boston until GM Danny Ainge made two deals that put the Celtics back into the forefront of the NBA, 5 mg original brand cialis  obtaining Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen. 5 mg original brand cialis All three players were All-Stars and future Hall of Famers as well; this melding of talent would either be a big success or a major failure. 5 mg original brand cialis It’s been a rousing success. 5 mg original brand cialis All three superstars under the direction of Head Coach Doc Rivers have checked their egos at the locker room door and preached the value of teamwork to their teammates. 5 mg original brand cialis Ainge also added a great supporting cast who all have the same team first mind set. 5 mg original brand cialis Garnett uses the term “Ubuntu” which loosely translated from African culture means a sense of community. 5 mg original brand cialis Yes it helps greatly that the team employs four players who are all time greats and one in Rajon Rando who will be in that same group when his career is over. 5 mg original brand cialis When you watch the C’s play you know right away what the mission statement is, 5 mg original brand cialis to win Banner 18 and to do it by any means necessary.

5 mg original brand cialis A team that is nowhere near having Ubuntu are the NY Knicks. 5 mg original brand cialis Here is a team that is just a red hot mess. 5 mg original brand cialis  The best guy in the entire Knicks organization is the GM Donny Walsh, 5 mg original brand cialis who took over a disaster of a team, 5 mg original brand cialis got them below the salary cap for the first since the inception of the cap, 5 mg original brand cialis who then went out an acquired two superstar players and has made The Garden the mecca of basketball once again. 5 mg original brand cialis For his hard work and dedication what did Walsh get in return, 5 mg original brand cialis a knife in his back wielded by the clueless owner of the team Jim Dolan. 5 mg original brand cialis The head coach Mike D’Antoni preaches offense, 5 mg original brand cialis offense and more offense with his “7 seconds or less” fast break style. 5 mg original brand cialis A style that will never win without the player’s ability to play even plausible defense, 5 mg original brand cialis which the Knicks don’t do. 5 mg original brand cialis  But the biggest problem with the Knicks is they have two superstars who don’t seem to know how to mesh. 5 mg original brand cialis Amare Stoudemire was THE show for the bulk of the season with the Knicks. 5 mg original brand cialis He was the focal point of everything from merchandising to promotion of the team, 5 mg original brand cialis he was anointed the next great Knickerbocker. 5 mg original brand cialis As the team had early success the chant of M-V-P cascaded from the fans at MSG, 5 mg original brand cialis they loved their Amare. 5 mg original brand cialis But wait, 5 mg original brand cialis all of a sudden another superstar joined the team, 5 mg original brand cialis this player was born in Red Hook Brooklyn but raised in Baltimore MD and won a National Championship with Syracuse and did everything in his power to be a Knick. 5 mg original brand cialis Move over Amare make way for Carmelo Anthony.

5 mg original brand cialis Both these star players said all the right things at the ‘Melo presser (the same cannot be said of Dopey Dolan) and the first few games, 5 mg original brand cialis the duo had Knick fans thinking it was 1970 all over again. 5 mg original brand cialis But as the season has gone on, 5 mg original brand cialis we see that both players are still trying to figure out who gets the ball when the game is on the line and how to get the rest of the roster to raise their game and guts to do what it takes to win games. 5 mg original brand cialis We have seen ‘Melo glare at teammates who haven’t gotten the ball to him in crunch time and we’ve seen Stoudemire wonder what happened to the team he was the leader of and the coach trying to figure out how to appease two big egos. 5 mg original brand cialis I guess you could say the Knicks lack “team chemistry”

5 mg original brand cialis Now the other tenant of MSG , 5 mg original brand cialis is the exact opposite of their basketball cohabitants. 5 mg original brand cialis  For long time NY Rangers fans like myself , 5 mg original brand cialis the best trait of this Ranger team is they never quit and even in losses, 5 mg original brand cialis it’s hard to get mad as they  are what hockey folks like to say a “lunch pail team” . 5 mg original brand cialis Not only are they a hard working bunch but for the most part the Rangers roster is mostly home grown. 5 mg original brand cialis  Ryan Callahan is the captain in waiting along with Brandon Dubinsky, 5 mg original brand cialis Mark Stahl, 5 mg original brand cialis Dan Girardi, 5 mg original brand cialis Derek Stepan  and King Henrik Lundquist  are all setting the tone for big run to the playoffs. 5 mg original brand cialis No matter what happens in the playoffs, 5 mg original brand cialis as Ranger fans we have to be pleased that the foundation of the team that will be a Cup contender for awhile has been set.  There is a very good blend of veteran and young players on this Ranger team. 5 mg original brand cialis When you see teams like the Rangers play as hard as they do, 5 mg original brand cialis as a fan your proud to say you root for that team. 5 mg original brand cialis With the NY Rangers you have team and fan chemistry.

5 mg original brand cialis That brings me to the NY Mets. 5 mg original brand cialis If your sole knowledge of the Mets was obtained through the NY beat writers, 5 mg original brand cialis sports columnists and Twitter, 5 mg original brand cialis you’d get the impression that this was the worst team in baseball. 5 mg original brand cialis But if you watch the games and possess an open mind , 5 mg original brand cialisyou’d come to the realization that the Mets are a pretty good ball club. 5 mg original brand cialis Are they a World Series contender? Not this year. 5 mg original brand cialis Will they be better than last year? No question in my mind they will.

5 mg original brand cialis There is a lot of familiarity with the players on the roster, 5 mg original brand cialis most have played together either in the big leagues or in the Mets minor league system. 5 mg original brand cialis R.A. 5 mg original brand cialis Dickey had mentioned this during the off season that many of the guys on this team know each other very well. 5 mg original brand cialis Dickey also mentioned that a baseball clubhouse is just like any work place, 5 mg original brand cialis some of guys you’re close with and other guys not as close but when you put the same uniform you have that in common and that’s what’s important.

5 mg original brand cialis One of the biggest failures of the past front office staff was they let the clubhouse become fractured. 5 mg original brand cialis The last two mangers seemed to polarize the clubhouse and that led to cliques forming between the players. 5 mg original brand cialis  You can see this spring that the new regime realizes this has been a problem with the Mets as Terry Collins instituted the Sunday night bowling parties to try to form a bond within the team.

5 mg original brand cialis Don’t get me wrong here, 5 mg original brand cialis I’m not saying if the whole team sat around singing Kumbaya  it will make the Mets a World Series winner, 5 mg original brand cialis but if the TC and Sandy Alderson can change the climate of that clubhouse and Collins can get the team to buy into a team first mentality, 5 mg original brand cialis that will be half the battle in getting the Mets winning games. 5 mg original brand cialis I feel the seeds of that way of thinking have been planted. 5 mg original brand cialis If the players realize that no matter how much money or how much time you’ve spent as a Met , 5 mg original brand cialis means nothing  if you don’t produce something positive to the club, 5 mg original brand cialis you’ll be gone.

5 mg original brand cialis Think about it, 5 mg original brand cialis the past administration went out and brought in talented players at big money contracts and what do they have to show for it? A division championship and two players calling out their teammates for not stepping up and talking to the media (the infamous “they speak English you know” from Bill Wagner and Red Ass LoDuca towards their Latino teammates)   I think this will be a much better clubhouse and a much better Met team than most think. 5 mg original brand cialis I can’t wait until a week from tomorrow and I really am excited for April 8th and the home opener. 5 mg original brand cialis Forget about the mess the owners are in, 5 mg original brand cialis forget about the nay sayers in media worrying about who the Mets fans are going to boo next. 5 mg original brand cialis I’m not saying we should become a bunch of Pollyanna’s , 5 mg original brand cialis but this Mets team looks like one we should be rooting for.
