In response to Petey62's comment:
Fierce, we lost guys like Quis, Sasha, JJJ, E'Twaun, Steamer, Dooling, Pietrus, Ray. Besides Ray, everyone else was a role player, at best. Very replaceable. And they have been replaced by much better players.
I expect Jeff Green to play better than Sasha. I expect Jason Terry to play better than Pietrus. I expect Leandro Barbosa to play better than E'Twaun. And I expect Courtney Lee to be as effective on both offense and defense as Ray was, especially on defense.
So, your right, I don't expect them to play the same way. I expect them to play better.
That's not rebuilding. That's lacking chemistry.
That's why you rebuild team chemistry too!

Hopes were raised by the offseason rebuilding, but nobody could expect the engine to be in perfect tune as the garage door opened on 2012-13. If you want to talk about winning a championship and how you’re better than you were in the title year of 2008, you have to dig in and put games away.
