"I'm not happy the last two games," the power forward said in the Rocky Mountain News. "I have the space in the low post. A lot of times I'm open. They (teammates) have cotton in their ears. They don't hear me . . . It's a difficult time. You play hard. You help. You run. You're in the low post and the ball don't come."
