Paxson, Duhon talk

By John Jackson

Not surprisingly, general manager John Paxson didn’t take kindly to Chris Duhon’s comments about being held out of Sunday night’s 116-109 loss at Detroit as punishment for missing the shootaround “I don’t play anyway, so it doesn’t have that much of an effect on me,” he said and had a quick talk with the guard before Monday’s practice.

Unfortunately, Duhon isn’t the only player on the team who has exhibited questionable professionalism of late. All you had to do was look at the bench in the final seconds of Sunday’s game to see the players laughing it up. Obviously loss No. 38 didn’t matter much to them.
