I don't mean to be a hater here, but what do you really expect him to say when he, you know, is asked a question by a mob of reporters immediately after losing and playing quite poorly in the recent past?
"I thought we played great", wouldn't really work given the scoreboard..."banana creme pie" wouldn't make much sense (tasty a statement as it may be), and it would be quite incendiary for him to throw someone under the bus and say something like, "...but coach wasn't matching lines very well, and Carey looked like Swiss cheese".
So that leaves things like:
"I’ve been through enough (to know) you can’t just show up in Game 1 of the playoffs and think ‘now I’m going to start playing, now our team’s going to click.’ That doesn’t work. We have to make sure we’re prepared this week and have the effort. If we get scored on, so what? We have to bounce back and have that championship mentality.”
Problem identified, potential future implications of problem (regarding playoffs) identified, personal accountability, and then solution identified. If you maintain skepticism that he'll do it - that's cool, I get it. But sports media isn't really going to give us any sort of insight into...anything. At least so far as I have seen during my time on Earth. So there's no point hating him for what he said
