From the Denver Post
"I feel me being here and what I've done for this (team) ... (an offer) would have at least been extended, and it wasn't," Martin told The Denver Post. "I don't know who made that decision, but the decision was made. And I ain't happy. They know it. Everybody knows it.
"I'm not rushing whatsoever. The day I come back is the day I come back," Martin said. "Think about it: Ain't nobody in a hurry to give me a contract, so why would I be in a hurry to rush back and risk further injury? Makes all the sense in the world, right? Trust me, I've thought about it plenty.
"I didn't get hurt on my own. I got hurt playing basketball. I didn't get hurt doing something I wasn't supposed to be doing. I got hurt playing basketball. Overuse, is what the doctor told me. I got a tear in my patella. I didn't get that nowhere else but playing for the Nuggets last year."
Kinda reminds me of when Shaq waited all summer to have toe surgery, then did it right before the Lakers' training camp started and said
: "I got hurt on company time, so I'll heal on company time." That was The Big Lazy's next-to-last season in L.A.
So yeah, I'm sure this thing with Martin will totally end well.
