It was awesome to see you come back from the Achilles injury and be healthy again. I’m curious, though, have you given any thought to how much longer you want to continue playing? I know you’re only 31 years old, but have you given that any thought? Rudy Gay: Man, that’s a question I haven’t gotten before! Just thinking off the top, when you go through an injury like that and you work really hard to come back as quickly as I did, it can either go two ways: You can feel burnt out or you can feel hungry for more. Personally, I’m hungry for more. As far as how many years I have left, I don’t know. But I don’t feel like the end is near at all.
