Intensely private and introverted, Adelman has shown a softer, warmer side over the past two months. Is that a sign that his mind is made up? If it is, this is not the way his players wanted to see him go. "I'm sure it's been tough on him, dealing with us knuckleheads and then he has to deal with his family problems," said Kevin Martin, who has played for Adelman both in Minnesota and Houston. "... You just wish him the best, whatever he feels like he needs to do. We'll be right beside him." Columbian

Darren Wolfson: Re: #Twolves, @Svmmy_ -- They'd love to have Martin come off the bench next year. Won't get fair return for Pek. Better off keeping. Twitter @DarrenWolfson

Martin underwent treatment after practice and didn't talk with media members before leaving the arena, but I'm hearing he's feeling better with what likely is knee tendinitis. His knee first bothered him last week in Detroit and really flared up in the second half of Friday's game at San Antonio. He said before Monday's game that he needed to get his knee "right."

Kevin Martin didn't exactly say before tonight's game at Boston that he won't play but he sure sounded like it. Martin played just 19 minutes in Sunday's victory at Memphis because of what he'd only specify as a hurting knee and didn't score for the first time since Valentine's Day 2012. Asked before the game if it was his decision or Rick Adelman's decision, Martin said: "That's a knee decision. It doesn't feel good at all. It's something I've got to get right. I don't know. It's hard to tell. There's a lot of pain in the knee. It's a time I've got to get it right." [...] Martin said the knee has been bothering him since a game at Detroit last week. He said he didn't hit it or hurt it in a specific play. "Just over time," he said. "Maybe old-man age." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

The Thunder knew it likely wouldn't be able to re-sign Kevin Martin, who OKC acquired -- with Lamb -- in the Harden deal. So Lamb got ready for his shot. Sometimes, his mother and sister would come along for the ride, and listen to him grumble. NBA.com

"It's a case of people making something out of nothing," Martin told ESPN.com on Wednesday. "KD is my guy and we've already talked, so he knows for sure that it wasn't a shot at him. Way too much respect for him." On Sunday night, after scoring 30 points on just 12 shots in Minnesota's victory at Madison Square Garden over New York, Martin was quoted as saying: "This is such a fun team to play on. Nobody is trying to lead the league in scoring here." ESPN.com
