“There’s no hard feelings. There’s no ill-intention. I have no problem with these guys at all. I’m happy for them. These are my friends.”
That’s how Rudy Gay summed up his thoughts on his old team going 27-14 since shipping him to the Sacramento Kings.
He’s glad they’re doing well and just as happy to have found his own game and started a turnaround in California.
“Change is for the better, for both parties,” Gay said ahead of his return to Toronto.
Apparently, and the veteran has handled himself with class, even as he’s been branded a scapegoat and the lone reason why the Raptors looked headed for the high lottery to start this season.
To Gay’s credit, he recognizes that while he wasn’t the only problem, his career-low 38.8% shooting and career-worst 3.3 turnovers per game were hurting the Raptors significantly.
