Rod Thorn said it finally and directly Saturday. "Our best player and leader was in a funk for reasons other than basketball most of the time. And it was hard for that not to carry over to other people," said Thorn talking about Jason Kidd last year. "And I don't care what happens, Vince is an upbeat kind of guy." He wasn't the only one praising No. 15. His coach, teammates, and GM all credited VC with "ebullient" leadership.
