Spurs’ Rudy Gay Says Team Has Chip on Their Shoulder

Published

on

San Antonio Spurs veteran forward Rudy Gay says that DeMar DeRozan won’t be the only player on the team that will be playing with a chip on their shoulder or having something to prove this upcoming season.

“That’s the thing about this whole team – everybody has a chip on his shoulder,” Gay said, according to Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News.

“His is just more publicized. But, look, I’m healthy (and have something to prove), LaMarcus (Aldridge) always finds some way to have a chip on his shoulder. Jakob (Poeltl) wants to prove he can be a great player. DJ (Dejounte Murray) has a chip on his shoulder because he wants to be known as one of the best at his position.”

DeRozan may have the biggest chip of any player on the team when considering he was blindsided by his trade from the Toronto Raptors earlier this offseason, a move that left the veteran feeling betrayed.

San Antonio could surprise some people this season, as they aren’t discussed among the teams that are Western Conference playoff caliber teams, and that omission could fuel the fire for the team this upcoming season.
