Take it for what it's worth.
Ok, I may be listening/hearing this wrong, but if I've heard Stephen A. Smith correctly, he said that Dwight told Rudy Gay during a Toronto game he should have waited so they both could have played together in Brooklyn, right? I think that's what I heard.
Now, going from that, there was a report that when Rudy Gay was on the trading block awhile back he wanted to go too Orlando to team up with him. So, hey may in fact want to play with Dwight. No dispute from me. Where it gets sticky, and maybe I got this wrong, Stephen A said Dwight told Rudy Gay this during a Toronto game that we played recently.
First of all, the last time we played Toronto was on January 20th. Rudy Gay wasn't apart of the Raptors then; the trade was made afterwards. So, unless he informed Gay by text, by telephoning him or whatever form of communication Dwight decided to use I question the accuracy of Stephen A's version of this story.
Hell, Dwight might want to leave. He probably does for all I know. However, for an injury plagued 27-year old with a back issue that could always be there, he'd be insane to leave money on the table. But it's Dwight, so you never know...
Stephan usually has good sources but this one sounds made up to me
Come on. Are you going to believe what Dwight says that gives you hope he doesn't want out, or what you're "lying eyes" and "ears" tell you when watching everything he does (including multiple times ripping his Lakers jersey off while still on the sideline [really the least of what they should have seen or heard this season from him]), (and listening to his interviews)......using common sense. And then say that S.A.S. probably "made this up". Really?
