“Everybody wanted to win. Everybody wanted to make it work. But I don’t know if we knew how to exactly do that,” Tatum said. “Because we all got along great, on the plane, off the court. But even watching film, it didn’t necessarily look like we were all on the same page during the games.”
“And it’s not one person’s fault. It’s not Brad’s fault, or Danny’s fault,” he added. “I mean, we all played a part. People can blame the GM and the coach, but we still had to go out there and perform and do our job, and like I said, we didn’t always do it.”
And he added:
“I didn’t backtrack,” said Tatum. “I’m still improving in all my numbers, just not as fast as I wanted to. But you know, that’s why I’m excited for this offseason and for next season. Hopefully, if I’m still on the team. So we’ll see what happens.”
