Garrett tries not to bash players in public but hats off to Garrett for speaking the truth to Irving in private. “He told me I should just quit, smoke all the weed I want, the team didn’t need me,” the 25-year-old told USA Today Sports on Thursday. “I’m a distraction to the team.” Irving is an idiot for wasting an opportunity to earn enough income in a few years to last a lifetime. Don't forget the retirement and healthcare. Garrett earned a little more respect with this article.
