Suns’ Brown Frustrated by Lack of Minutes
Shannon Brown sits aside the practice court. He is done with his work but unable to let go of a basketball or his intensity as he discusses becoming the Suns’ odd man out.
“I did what I needed to do as a starter and handled my business,” Brown said. “For some reason, they want to cut my legs from under me. I know I’m built for it. I did a great job of holding my composure and not letting it get to me to where I did something detrimental to my career. I showed a lot of character by sitting back while I was taken advantage of in a lot of ways. I’ve done everything asked of me in practice and made sure to show these people what time it is. It definitely hurts to sit on the bench, watching us lose night in and night out knowing I can help and being lied to. It’s been a crazy year. I’m just glad I made it through.”
“I’m glad I didn’t let my emotions get the best of me and lash out like I normally do,” Brown said. “Younger Shannon Brown would’ve been out of the NBA for doing something he couldn’t handle. I’ve been through enough.”
