Julian Wright Refuses To Enter A Game

It sounds as if there is a small problem brewing in Toronto. Raptors coach Jay Triano called for forward Julian Wright to enter the game in a 138-100 blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors. The problem was that Wright refused to enter the game. I don't know what the deal is but apparently Wright isn't too happy about the amount of playing time he's been getting.

There's one way to solve it Julian, play better.

Triano didn't seem to be too bent out of shape over what took place. "I just went to the next guy," Triano told the Toronto Star. "I wasn't going to ask him twice."

“I asked (Wright) to go in, and he didn’t go in,” Triano said. “I know he went to the washroom just before that. I don’t know if he wasn’t feeling well. I still haven’t talked to him.”

Wright hasn't been too happy lately and refused to answer any questiuons about what went on during last night's debacle.

“I don’t want to talk about it,” Wright said. “Speculate on anything you want.”

This is another in a long line of situations where an athlete acts like a child. You get paid a few million to play a game. Sometimes a coach might want to try something different to make the team better. If you're not playing up to standards you spend time on the bench. That's definitely not the way to act, especially since Wright is going into free agency. Considering how his career has gone, it's gonna be hard for him to latch on to another team. He won't be back in Toronto and if he plays in the NBA next year he's gonna have to answer the question about why he didn't go in.
