Post-Game Bail-out: Six players avoid media in post-game

For whatever reason, Nets players avoided the media after Sunday's game. Not good


The loss was frustrating, with what sure looked like blown calls and some mystifying on-court combinations. For whatever reason, six rotation players gave beat writers the cold shoulder Sunday night, leaving the locker room before the media was permitted inside.

According to reports, Brook Lopez, Andray Blatche, MarShon Brooks, C.J. Watson, Keith Bogans, and Gerald Wallace did not make themselves available to reporters. Only Deron Williams and Reggie Evans spoke afterwards.

Rod Boone called the locker room as "barren as the Sahara," describing the scene this way...

The general manager escorted the All-Star center who didn't play a single minute in the fourth quarter out of the locker room and to the loading dock.
A few others quickly trickled out behind Billy King and Brook Lopez, scurrying away so they wouldn't have to discuss how things went down in the closing minutes, apparently afraid of getting themselves in trouble for trashing the officiating.

In post game tweets, he and other beat reporters expressed their own frustration.
