Y would I lie about something hes admitted to tubby?
When people are asking me, “How does it feel to be back?” I don’t consider myself back. It’s jinxy. That’s why I don’t talk to the media right now. They’re going to ask the same questions, “How does the knee feel? … How does it feel coming off the bench? … Are you opting out?”
You know what, there’s only so many times you can answer those same questions. I mean, can’t they just use the same quotes I said last week? There’s only so many times you can answer the same questions so I just said, “Forget it.”
I retired from talking to the media for this year. I’m going to wait until next season.
After this, I’m not blogging for a little bit either. Right now, it’s not all about me. It’s about keeping focus on the team. We’re in the middle of a playoff positioning f!ght. I’m trying to do anything I can to help us achieve our team goals. If that means coming off the bench, then that means coming off the bench.
I’m just trying to keep a level head and not worry about anything. I’m just focusing on playing and doing whatever I can to make the team better. I know most players, when they come back, especially when they’re the franchise player on the team, they can interrupt what’s going on. Instead of coming in and trying to fulfill what I used to do right away, I just wanted to come in as a role player and add to what the team was already doing. I don’t want them to have to change back to the dynamic we had last year and re-do their roles with the playoffs so near. Me coming back should be a plus, not a minus.
Iam happy hes not being selfish and choosing to come of the bench. Maybe the Nuggets would be a better team if AI did that.
