A day after claiming that his New Orleans Pelicans were out of the playoff race, coach Alvin Gentry admitted regret over his comments.
“Yeah, I was emotional. I would say that I shouldn’t have said it. I’m not afraid to say that,” Gentry said. “But at that time I was just so frustrated. That’s why it’s good that I wait a while to talk to [the media]. Sometimes, it doesn’t subside enough that you still say emotional things.”
