The angst extended to the defensive side, too. Porter didn’t just arrive with new principles. He ran the veterans through exhausting fundamental drills — fire feet, blow the whistle, dive after the fake loose ball. “Hoosiers”-type stuff, things that’ll infuriate established, aging veterans like Nash, Grant Hill and Shaq during the middle of a tiring season. Raja Bell and Boris Diaw, two of the more unhappy and vocal voices, were shipped out in December for Jason Richardson. But that didn’t slow the brewing player revolt as the perennial West contender puttered through a disappointing season.
Raja Bell: “There was an element of that when I was in Cleveland. They figured that out, they put it to bed. LeBron went to L.A. had these conversations with Kevin Love, but it was so bad that first year that I was on a phone call with Dan Gilbert and our whole brass and we had a big deal on the table to move Kevin Love in the first year and I was like ‘Move him’ not because I didn’t think he was a good player. I just couldn’t see them figuring out how to work as people together.””
