I don't know how you can get any clearer.
"I don't have any knee problems. I don't have any knee problems. I'm
not trying to get in depth with my injury and all that but the things
are bothering me are secondary and not even primary. So I'm excited
about that because it's nothing be strengthening the knee and playing
again. You gotta remember, I have been out since what, March? I haven't
done anything since then. I have just been rehabbing, strengthing.
Nothing simulates basketball play. The pounding, the churning, the
reactions, the stuff you have to react to in games you can't get that
