The Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh era has ended in Miami and Goran Dragic is ready to be the new leader of the team. Speaking to “Palm Beach Post” the Slovenian guard said he is up for the challenge.
“I need to step in, be more vocal, be a leader,” he said. “We still got UD, we got Beno (Udrih), Josh McRoberts. We still got some experienced guys that I think is a good mix with the young guys. CB is not with us, D-Wade is not with us. It’s a lot of minutes. Somebody is going to have to take those minutes. I’m confident, Tyler (Johnson) he’s going to step in. Josh Richardson, (Justise) Winslow had and unbelievable rookie season. I think we’ll be okay. Josh and Justise, Whiteside. … everybody can run. I would like us to play faster paced because that is my style. That’s why they brought me here. We need to go to training camp and try to develop that chemistry with new guys. But we have a great coaching staff and a great organization behind us. We have everything it takes to be a good team as long as we put in a lot of hard work on the court and play as a team.”
However, this is not going to be a walk in the park: “It’s not the prettiest situation right now. Still, we’re professionals, we need to clear our heads and have more focus, one goal in our heads, to get better as a team, to get to know each other and try to build that chemistry we’re going to need for the season.”
