Dee Brown: (Laughs loudly) That’s not true. P never beat me in practice. He never beat me in a drill. He never beat me in one-on-one. I told him, “Hey, I don’t try to go and rap. Don’t try to come on the basketball court and shoot jumpers with me. You ain’t got a chance.” I told him that to his face. He tried. He tried hard. And yeah, as a rookie, I’d run him off screens, I’d throw an elbow here, Antonio Davis would give him a little hip-check there. So yeah, he went through it. But as far as me, I was one of the captains, one of the five or six best players on the team. I wasn’t worried about Master P, trust me. I was worried about freaking Greg Anthony and Mookie Blaylock. I wasn’t worried about Master P.
As the depression continued to worsen, Davis eventually mentioned his issues to someone at the National Basketball Players Association, who suggested that he see a therapist. “He got me to understand that what I was feeling was normal,” says Davis. ”I’d been playing this game for a long time and then all of a sudden you take that away from me. That’s like ripping out my heart. What am I going to fill it with? So there is this sense of loss.”
