Do you blame him?
“With all the speculation and the talk, you know what I’m saying, it’s one of them things where you wanted closure to the whole situation and for me, it’s different than everybody else’s situation. So, I just said, ‘Hey, you know what? Try to be the best professional’ and just come out and do what I got to do to stay fit and working out and things like that.”
“They sat me down and you hear all these different allegations on why they (sat) me down and things like that. It was crazy to me because all you want to do is play basketball, and I want to get out there and perform and that’s all I’ve been doing for as long as I’ve been in the NBA. It was just tough.”
On his benching: “I still ain’t spoke to nobody, you know what I’m saying? Nobody ain’t spoke to me about it. Just like when the whole situation went down, nobody didn’t tell me what was going on, you know? It’s kind of one of those things where you give your team for the last nine years your blood, sweat and tears and you never expect nothing like this would have happened, but it happened.”
