DeJuan Blair Says Spurs Didn’t Win Title Because He Was On Bench
I wish I could be a fly on the wall, and see Gregg Popovich’s response to this latest quote from DeJuan Blair.
Blair fell out of favor with Popovich, and had his minutes reduced. Blair who was not pleased by how he treated, ripped Popovich and said “the Spurs would have won the finals had he played” according to Project Spurs.
“Of course I want to get back. I don’t think we’ve (Spurs) would have come up short if I would’ve played but, hey, keep that out there.”
Is Blair right to have hurt feelings? Maybe.
Would the Spurs be champions if he had an increased role? definitely not.
