This question has been growing in my mind over the last few games: Does this team like each other?
Yes, I'm sure certain players are friends and get along great. The question is more as a collective whole. Witness DeMarcus jumping down Darius's throat towards the end of the Alabama game. And at the end, it looked like DeMarcus and Wall were going at it (but I could be wrong). All of that, however, could be dismissed as mere heat of the moment stuff.
What really prompted the question is the continual lack of "help up." I have noticed (anecdotally), that when one of our players hits the deck, no one really goes to give them a hand up. Sure, if someone is standing there, they may offer a hand. But no one comes running over, unlike other teams who are seemingly more cohesive. Last night, there were multiple instances where an Alabama player or the ref actually helped our guy up. Perhaps I am just seeing things, but I can't help noticing it - it's like everyone out there is on his own little island.
Of course, even if true, that prompts the question: Does it even matter?
Am I off-base here? I don't live in Lex-town, so I don't get any opportunity to witness any day-to-day interactions / news reports, so perhaps someone can provide a better perspective.
