  • Uh, last game in the fourth assembly from a sports perspective, You got going a little bit eso tonight.

  • You've sort of got the complete game with scoring assists, rebounds where you went from a comfortable level on.

  • Did you feel like this was your best quality?

  • Just years.

  • Maybe so, But I'm not gonna lie.

  • I mean, uh, you know, it was a great Siri's, but after you know the statement way made last thing, I really don't think it's right.

  • Um, you know, to talk about basketball, e feel like we made a huge statement as a team together.

  • Um e think more.

  • I should talk about that rather than basketball tonight.

  • Yes, Laurie Nickel.

  • That said, Chris, you know what it's like to play through fatigue.

  • You know what it's like to play your travel and adversity.

  • How hard was it for you?

  • Thio on a switch gears and be a professional play with everything that's been on your mind has been difficult to change that over.

  • I would say it was very difficult today.

  • I mean, way had extremely long couple days, just a lot going on emotionally physically.

  • You could add that, too, but The thing I love about this team about this league is that we all stuck together way had, you know, in depth conversations way back each other up.

  • We didn't leave one person, you know, standing by himself.

  • We all stuck together just like a brotherhood.

  • Should dio Okay, Joe Barton.

  • Well, I had a basketball question.

  • If you don't want to answer it, probably not yet.

  • What was it like for you?

  • So what was it like to walk back in there?

  • Just for the first time since you guys have done what you did?

  • I mean, I definitely don't think when we initially made that, you know, I'm statement that we weren't gonna play that day.

  • We talked together about, you know, standing for what we believe in fighting for what's right.

  • And I think that last game, that was exactly it.

  • Tanya, go ahead.

  • I think you guys don't realize that what you did was spreading and that the rumors that the kids and, yeah, all the rest of the teams, it was somewhere in the midst.

  • While we're in our locker room.

  • I mean, E would be lying if I said, you know, my head wasn't spending at the time.

  • Maybe a lot of other guys were because it was a huge decision that we had to make it.

  • You know, I think the honest spoken in one day during my team meetings that something like that hadn't been done in 60 60.

  • There may be something that would build Russell.

  • So I mean, you know, we at that I mean, this the locker room, what was going on in locker room?

  • We're just trying to figure out how to take advantage of that time that we weren't playing, you know, speak to the people that we need to speak to figure out what needs to be done and what we could do from our Did you learn?

  • What did you learn?

  • Power that you guys go?

  • Well, e think way.

  • I think we realized that we do have a voice.

  • We have a huge platform basketball here, but I think we realized that even more, Um, what we did, um, you know, with the rest of the lead the rest of leads around the country, a lot of people paying respects and, you know, starting standing up for, you know, social injustice and police reform.

  • I mean, we did find out during that meeting in our locker room that our state legislature in Wisconsin have not met for four months.

  • They meet on Monday, and we've heard that in the past.

  • Most times they just, you know, gavel gavel out.

  • I mean, they all have different stories that have different backgrounds out.

  • All have different passed on.

  • Their frustration was definitely hurt hurt in that in that meeting in that ballroom, which we all expected.

  • E think it's important for everybody you know, to get in the room like that, especially about their feelings, um, and then come back.

  • I think what's the smarter than you do also and go on the same page about what we need to do what we can do, Um, by using basketball here.

  • Eric Jr Chris, You know, huh?

  • It's a different era in today's Anthony's.

  • You guys gotta be speaking of pumps outside of just basketball, just talking about that balance as opposed to, say, guys in a generation before they didn't have this type of responsibility where people look to them.

  • But they truly felt that we made the right decision on they still behind us.

  • They give us the confidence and voices to keep the team what you're doing way.

  • Have they have all the supporting us on the basketball court in off the basketball court, which is huge coming from front office on the ship, although trust that two more Zor Stevenson.
