Culture change

Did DJ hear these words and magically flip a switch? Of course not. DJ didn't really start clicking until one or two games later. But the process that John Groce has laid out for DJ from April until now has all been pointed towards one goal: an aggressive DJ Richardson, not a tentative DJ Richardson. If he misses a lot of shots between there and here, so be it.

And that got me thinking about the culture change that John Groce has been trying to implement in the whole program. As he said last summer when he came up with the "TNT" theme, he realized that he needed to take a fairly talented team and instill toughness across the board.
