It sends one hell of a message, though. "I benched this guy because of what he did, and the defense sucked, and I kept him benched, and we lost. If you want to play, and you want to win, you better keep your **** together because your ass WILL remain benched even if it costs us all a ring."It wasn’t the flu. I feel sorry for anyone that believes that. He did something to chap BB’s ass the wrong way and the result was the worst defensive performance I’ve ever seen out of this team in a postseason game.
