« DJs have been in and out of the cast, » Nash said of SNY. « Started, not started. Played, not played much. My chats with DJ were about – and honestly all of them – that this is a sacrifice for everyone to put us in a position to fight for a championship. Every team has to sacrifice. And so we all had to sacrifice. We all have to accept that it’s not about one person. It’s about the group. We all have to be ready to accept our roles, whether you are starting out, whether you are from the Come bench or whether you’re not in the rotation, you need energy bring, you have to be positive and you have to give to the group and protect the group. That goes for everyone.
“Whether DJs in or out of the rotation, whether Jeff (Green) is in or out, whether LaMarcus is in or out, they still have to come with a great attitude, for the good of the community play, bring energy and spirit every day and whether you play or not is one of the ways that unfolds, but the process is more important. How do we go about this? I think everyone has to accept that we are all here to try to be the best team we can be, to give us the best chance to win the best we can and that takes sacrifice and understanding that it’s not about you It is about the collective group and the protection of the group. «
