I feel like I let the Nets down when I couldn’t play. Sometimes this became a distraction for the team. Obviously I’m disappointed and sad, mainly because we didn’t play as well as we could in this series. I know a lot of the people who called us contenders wanted to see us fail. So I’ll remember that and use it as motivation for the next season. Anyway, I hope we’re healthy until then.”, he stated.
