There are three NBA playoff games Monday night: The Raptors took a 3-2 lead in their Cheap Rugby Jerseys series by routing the Bucks 118-93 in Toronto; and the Hawks evened their series vs. the Wizards 2-2 with a 111-101 victory in Atlanta.
George received similar criticism after Game 1 when he said he should be the one taking last-second shots after C.J. Miles attempted the game-winner and missed. To his credit, a day later he admitted Miles made the right play, but that quote didn’t get near as much publicity.
Saying George hates his teammates was an easy assumption following back-to-back games of criticism, but that doesn’t mean it was the reality. He was asked specifically about those players, and gave his honest opinion. He understandably wants the best out of teammates in order to win the series.
While there’s still a real possibility George leaves Indiana in the near future (either through trade or free agency), he’s dedicated to the team at the moment. He wants to win just as much as anyone.
