Gay defends Spurs: 'We're just building character'

Rudy Gay says the Spurs, who enter the All-Star break in a now-familiar position as the seventh-place team in the West, aren't tucking their tails into the abyss of NBA history books anytime soon.

Pau Gasol was asked today about two reports out there saying he requested a trade, and would like a buyout from the Spurs. Here's what he had to say: “What's the source? What's the validity of that story? I don't know. I didn't request to be traded. I don't want to comment on it because it is what it is. I think people understand or can figure out my situation on the team is not what was expected from me, and my only wish and desire is to be able to contribute to the team, and be able to be on the floor and do what I'm supposed to do, and do what I signed here to do, and kind of live up to what I'm paid for. That's all. I'm waiting and hoping that that will happen. I'm staying positive. But don't believe everything that is out there. Kind of interesting how that was put out there. But people go with it because it makes sense. Let's point the finger at Pau. Maybe we should point the finger somewhere else, and ask other questions and ask other people. When you're here in the spotlight, and you get asked questions and put in that position, it comes with the territory. I'm staying positive. I love this game, love what I do, and work hard to be able to do what I do. And I want to continue to do it. I know I might not be in my prime, but I feel I still can contribute at a very high level, and be an important and positive impact for my team, and make my team better. There's a lot of rumors, a lot of stories. It didn't come from me, right? So ask whoever that source or that outlet that found that information. Go ask them. I just think that's fair. Ask management, right? Players are put in these positions, and I feel like I just want to do what I'm supposed to do, what I can do and what I'm paid to do.”
