Mike Conley Rumors

“I think we should have five All-Stars,” Conley said. “I think this year, honestly, I’m playing the best basketball of my entire career. Being 33 years old, I’ve never had the opportunity to play in the game. I’ve had the door shut so many times. But, it’s been so much fun being a part of a team like this that is so unique. We play so unselfishly, and we have a defensive mindset and a physical mentality. “To do that, you have to have nine or 10 guys that all make plays for each other and are all unselfish. It’s funny because we have been so versatile this season that I have struggled to figure out how to scout us. I never had to think about that for one of my teams.”

“It was a difficult time overall,” Conley said. “Moving my family out here, learning a new area for the first time in forever. Utah Jazz fans are very passionate, and they love their team and they love success. I was supposed to be a part of that. I wanted to show the people what I could do. “So to start the way I did, not doing anything well, not being able to hit a shot, that wasn’t me. And then when the injury came, I wasn’t able to show what I could do. For a while, it felt like anything I did was going to be bad. It was tough. I wasn’t used to negative criticism. I felt like I let the people down.”
