The 2013 NBA season has started, people are being dunked on, Laker fans are panicking, and Kenyon Martin is pissed that he’s not on a team yet.
According to Yahoo Sports, Martin can’t understand why he hasn’t been signed.
“There is a notion about me that is not accurate at all – I don’t know who started it or where it came from – that people can’t control me,” Martin told Yahoo! Sports. “I don’t understand. Have I had my issues like a lot of other people? Yeah. But I’m getting back that people think they can’t control me, that if I don’t play I’m going to explode, or I can turn a locker room.
“In 12 years there was not one day where I told one guy to dislike anybody. If you ask guys who I’ve played with that know me, they know what it is and know I’m about winning basketball games and competing.”
Martin averaged 5.2 points, 4.3 rebounds in 22 minutes for the Clippers last season.
“If someone calls me tomorrow, I don’t care who it is, whether it’s losing or winning at this point,” Martin said. “If someone calls me tomorrow and wants me to come in, I’m going. Guys are going down and [teams] are like, ‘Well, we are going to stick with what we got.’ I’m like, ‘Really?’ I started questioning myself, ‘Am I that bad of a guy?’
Just be patient Kenyon, someone will need a goon, I mean enforcer in the coming weeks.
