Quote of the Day
“What I would say to him, I would tell him to play for himself. Because he’s the one out there putting in the work, he’s the one out there getting up in the morning staying committed to the game……his career is about him; it’s about whatever he wants to do and however he feels is right for him.”
Kevin Durant, talking about Bucks’ star Giannis Antetokounmpo
