We had selfish players who played for wrong reasons: Joey
Joey has come out hard in his post-match press conference at an unnamed "3 or 4 guys".
Who would he have been referring to? He did give a special serve to Eric Griffin
The coach didn't mention his own milestone in the build up to the clash and said that it wouldn't have mattered if he did.
"There is no way three or four of those guys were going to come out here and play for me in the 500," he said.
"That was not going to happen. If anything, they were going to play worse.
"In modern society, far too often these guys get so much reinforcement from social media and people, that that's what they grow accustomed to to make them get out and play.
"If they can't get out and play the game of basketball for the simple fact that it is one of the biggest games in the world, something is wrong.
"And obviously something was wrong.
"I love this game.
"I use this sport to really effect people in a positive way.
"It really distresses me when individuals don't use this sport - and they use it for selfish reasons. And we had a lot of guys this year who used it for selfish reasons."
Wright thinks that playing basketball should be enough reason to get up to play. But thinks that some people wanted to take from the game and pillage as much as they could.
He said he didn't want to be around those people.
Eric Griffin saw only 2:23 minutes of court time, all in the first quarter.
"He turned the ball over three times in 10 seconds," he said.
"I don't know what was wrong with him, but he wasn't interested in playing tonight, so I wasn't interested in playing him."
