Conley, meanwhile, had always been a highly regarded player on highly regarded teams, the type of guy who was comfortable blending in with the talent surrounding him and who was seldom forced into a leading role. “Kyle was a pit bull,” Stoudamire said. “The way he played, the things that he did, it was straightforward.
