LinkNovember 16, 2005 -- Lamond Murray has been here before: on a team waiting for a chance. But that doesn't make the waiting any easier for the veteran who was brought in for depth on the Nets' bench. Murray sounds terribly frustrated.
"You start questioning yourself. You [say], 'It must be me.' Going from place to place, with three different coaches and they do the same exact thing to you. You just don't know what it is so it's got to be me, something I'm doing," said Murray, who didn't play last night for the third time in eight games.
"I'm here to play and help the team out. But they must feel they don't need me or I can't contribute, and that's not something I can change."
In eight games, Murray, 32, never left the bench in three, played a 27 seconds in another, three minutes in a third. His longest run was 15 minutes — but it came in garbage time at Indiana.
Should had put up a pool to take wagers on when this would have had happened! LOL
