Yesterday, Dakari Johnson worked out for his hometown Brooklyn Nets, and afterwards, told reporters something we’ve heard a lot lately: he’s still not over The Loss.
“I’m still not over it, it’s still a tough loss,” Dakari said. Coincidentally, Wisconsin guard Josh Gasser was also part of yesterday’s workout, but Dakari said he hasn’t given him any grief.
“Josh is here too, he’s actually a pretty cool guy,” Johnson said. “I don’t have any grudges against him….He’s a pretty cool guy.”
John Calipari, Karl Towns and Willie Cauley-Stein have also said they’re not over The Loss. Two months postmortem, the fact that they’re still affected by it too is kind of comforting.
