This is fast becoming a trend and a theme. Gerald Wallace started it and Jeff Green has picked up on it as time has passed. Calling out their teammates in the media. I'm still not sure how I feel about that, but at least they care and they are trying to do what they can to light a fire under their teammates and focus them on the right path.
Here's the latest.
Jeff Green on his frustration level right now: "On a scale of 1 to 10? Fifteen."— Evans Clinchy (@evansclinchy) November 2, 2013
Wallace on selfish play: "I really don’t even understand it. I’m trying to figure out what’s more important, winning or padding your stats?"— Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) November 2, 2013
Jeff Green: "We’ve got to figure out ways to put egos aside."— Baxter Holmes (@BaxterHolmes) November 2, 2013
Jeff: "We did everything right to get the lead. And we did everything wrong to lose it. So we deserved to lose this game."— Baxter Holmes (@BaxterHolmes) November 2, 2013
Welp. They are right to be frustrated, that's for sure.
Not entirely sure who they are talking about in respect to "egos" and "padding stats." I suppose they are talking to the whole team, but at some point someone's bound to get a finger pointed at them and that usually doesn't go so well.
Random food for thought. Wouldn't it be odd if one or both of these guys was talking (in part) about the other guy but the other guy wasn't aware of it yet? Stay tuned for the next episode of Real Housewives of Waltham.
