They went out and got a "dual coach" in Steve Clifford and Patrick Ewing. They also got Al Jefferson.
And here they are, in the playoffs and not like some 8th seed that has no chance. They actually resembled a playoff team (playoff team, not a contender) by improving their defense to 6th in the league.
So, what is the general consensus on what promoted this turnaround?
The past young players doing well (Kemba, Biyombo, Kidd)?
The rookie, Zellar?
What is the general opinion behind it all?
