Eight-time NBA All-Star and Hall of Fame basketball player Rick Barry joined me on the Bald Faced Truth radio show on Wednesday (12-3p on 750-AM and 102.9-FM) and downloaded on the problems he sees in the NBA, his persona, and the Trail Blazers (15-21) woes this season. Barry specifically talked about the line of hungry Blazers players from last season who were rewarded with long-term guaranteed contracts and now aren’t playing with the same success.
“I think it’s about the character of the players,” Barry said. “It shouldn’t matter how much money you’re making. You should have great personal pride to be happy with yourself and give your best effort and be the best you can every time you step on the court. Obviously, they misjudged the character of these individuals that if all of a sudden they’re getting paid these contracts and are not going to give the effort… they screwed up.”
