The Team Reacts To KG's CommentsFrom the Pioneer Press:
"K.G., he's a winner, but we all are here," guard Marko Jaric said. "We're all frustrated. Nobody wants to go through a rebuilding season."
"I think the win-loss record has been a frustration for everyone," forward Mark Madsen said. "Every single one of us expects more in terms of the individual play and in terms of winning games. I think everyone wants to win very badly, and I think everyone is very frustrated that we haven't been better."
"Kevin has opinions and is frustrated," first-year coach Dwane Casey said Tuesday after practice. "We're all frustrated. We're not happy with where we are. Nobody wants to not be fighting for the division lead. I think he just spoke his mind on the feeling of everyone, from [owner] Glen Taylor all the way down to our trainer. We're not happy, our fans our not happy. It is frustrating to be in this situation, but it's something we have to build on."
Coach Casey on Glen Taylor:
"He's never said anything less than talking about next year and what we need to do to get better, to improve the situation," Casey said. "I don't need a vote of confidence. It's his prerogative. If he doesn't want me here tomorrow, it's his decision to clean house. If he feels that way, I'll thank him for the opportunity and keep going, but Glen has talked nothing but about what we want to do next year to get better and improve our situation."
Madsen on Casey:
"We've had some tough losses. We've had some injuries," forward Mark Madsen said. "I've never had a coach who works as hard as coach Casey. Who breaks things down and does everything in his power to win games."
