Being in the NBA, there’s a lot of politics to the game. It doesn’t really depend on how talented you are; it depends on who you’re good with sometimes. I hate to say it, but that’s just the way it is. It’s a business, basically. And it got to the point to where no matter how hard I tried, or no matter what I did, it was always something else I wasn’t doing right. I would get there early before practice and stay late after practice. If there was a game and I didn’t play, I would stay there after the game was over and I wouldn’t leave the arena until one o’clock in the morning because I stayed and worked out. To me right there, that’s showing the coach no matter what situation I’m in, I’m always going to work hard and I’m always wanting to succeed. But it got to the point to where it just wasn’t working anymore. And I thought, before I start going through the motions, I just told myself I’m not even going to worry about it. Whatever happens, happens. If I get an offer to go overseas, I’m going to go overseas. If I get an offer to play in the States, I’ll think about it.
