"To summarize, after earning and signing a deal which would pay him a monstrous amount of money — certainly more than any other team was willing to assume — Luongo played well, but not so well that a friend and rival didn’t come along and seemingly play better behind the same team. Attempts to move him were thwarted because the team showed him too much respect at first, then when the CBA landscape changes fully hit, couldn’t move him at all. So they traded the guy they could move and somehow this completely surprised Luongo?"

"We all know what to expect from him, he’s always been a great professional and his own worst critic. He’s our guy and we’re very lucky to have somebody of that calibre. Controversies come and go, and this one is pretty much over. I just don’t think it’s going to be an issue for us.”

"I say a little prayer to him or have a little talk with him before every game during the national anthem. He’s on my mind a lot. I still have pictures of him hanging in my house too.”
