We’re really getting the ropes under ourselves

Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics was answering a question in a post game interview about what changed for the team that is now playing well after early struggles. This is a congruent conflation of “learning/knowing the ropes” and “getting (one’s) feet on the ground”, both meaning to get comfortable and confident in a situation. “Find (one’s) feet” might also be in the mix. A big thanks to Celtics fan John Costello for hearing this one and sending it in!
