    Just cause they were teamates 11 years ago doesn't make it easier for them to play together later. Whatever the system was under Lewis at UH, it was a system for high flying college kids. It was different people under Rudy, Glide becoming unrivaled in the west, Dream going from techs and fights to observing Ramadan (and playing better even) during gametime.

    It's kinda hard to defend the position that Drexler is better than Artest. It's kinda like trying to convince someone that grass is green when they'd rather think it's purple. What's the point? Not my problem that purple-grass boy is an idiot.

    Absolutely not. Just because they played together in college doesn't translate to success.

    The fact that Drexler was an established superstar did. Just because they didn't win it in college didn't make Drexler more motivated. The fact Drexler was denied a championship twice was his motivation.
