Sometimes it’s better to just be quiet and not say anything. It ceases to amaze me that some athletes can say just ridiculous things at the wrong time.
Samuel Dalembert is a backup center for the Milwaukee Bucks who rarely sees the floor now that he lost his job to the improved Larry Sanders.
Dalembert will be a free agent this summer, and has this idea that he’ll have his list of suitors. Right now the Bucks are matched up against the Miami Heat in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs, and were blown out yesterday in-game 1.
Before that blowout while talking to Fox Sports Florida, Dalembert felt it was wise when asked about his impending free agency, to say that he “might switch teams and join the Miami Heat.”
“The Heat will be definitely an option,’’ Dalembert told FOX Sports Florida before his Bucks lost to the Heat 110-87 in Game 1 of an Eastern Conference first-round series Sunday night at AmericanAirlines Arena. “It’s up to them and seeing what’s going to be out there. But at this point you want to be with a contending team. You don’t want to go backwards, so you want to chase that promised land.’’
The fact that Dalembert would think the Heat would have interest in him just boggles the mind. They already have Birdman Andersen, and Dalembert can’t even get minutes in the Bucks rotation.
Just be quiet some times.
