JASON KELCE: You have to realize that this is a blip in time, and that over the course of my career, I write the narrative. I'm the one who decides what this is. So you know-- so I think that that's how you control everything. You really think about it like, if I just do this better, if I go out there and ball, if I go out there and play really good, nobody's going to have any choice but to love me or appreciate me as a player.

So that's what I tell guys-- you know, you write your own narrative. You know, what's going on-- I don't want to crush any other player. What's going on with the 76ers, Ben Simmons, stuff like that, all of that is because of a lack of accountability, a lack of owning up to mistakes, and a lack to correcting things.

If all that got corrected, if you're fixing free throws, if you're getting better as a player, none of this is happening. So you can-- everybody can bitch and complain about, you know, how tough this city is to play in. Just play better, man. The city will love you.
