That's what's made this whole thing with Dirk so weird. It's like Dirk hasn't finished eating & still nibbling at his dessert but the whole league is at the door, telling him, "You ain't got to go home but you got to get the heck up outta here."
Always thought this line from when Leonsis spoke with reporters back in January was buried a bit. Was the same day he made the "never, ever tank" comments, but this was notable, too. The story it's from is here: https://t.co/n4isRpUSB1
Leonsis on potential offseason changes: "Don’t know yet. Let’s see how they do out West. It was disappointing. We were trying to catch [Miami].” Good get from @BenStandig here:
Haha — They. Are. 14. Games. Under .500.
Ted Leonsis on possible changes: "Don’t know yet. Let’s see how they do out West." How does what they do on the West Coast trip impact anything?!?! They're missing the playoffs regardless.
Tomas Satoransky on Bradley Beal: "He really knows how to read a game and that he trusts in his teammates. ... He made the right read. There were 3 or 2 guys on him and he saw the open guy and he made the pass, and I think that says a lot about how mature his game is now."
Jeff Green on @DwyaneWade: "I've been telling him since he announced that he would retire that he doesn’t need to retire. He’s playing amazing. ... I’ve tried my convincing, it didn’t work. I’ve been trying for the last six months, it didn’t work." ?
