Kenyon Martin: I’m not sure if I could play in today’s NBA. When I watch NBA games now and see some of the calls — and some of the non-calls that these guys complain about — I’m blown away. I always tell people, “I never could’ve played in this generation.” I didn’t know how to flop or how to not play defense. I never backed down from anyone and I played hard defense on every possession of every game. I probably would’ve adapted to the shooting and stuff, but as far as my style of play, this is who I am. I’m not compromising that for nobody. People always told me that I was in the wrong generation, that I would’ve fit right in if I played in the ‘80s or ‘90s.
