Who's the Fearless Leader?

Must be Steve Nash. How else do we explain Boris Badenov going off for 34 and the game winner? I've been big on Boris from day one of the experiment in the desert (then again, I liked Yuta Tabuse over Barbosa, so I'm clearly a terrible judge.) I keep imagining the phone calls Boris must be having with his moms:

Boris, you must take your man strong to the hole. Why do you flip the ball? In my day, we play with our backs to the basket and throw down avec authorité. You must be the man. You must especially be the man against this homme allemande, Dirk le Diggler. You must be strong, like DeGaulle, not weak like Pétain.

Well, I have a vivid imagination.
