Austin Daye: My season is ‘a failure’

Austin Daye, via Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

"This year is not what I thought. You set goals for yourself and this year is a failure. Not a wasted year but a failure."

As strange as this sounds, my respect for Daye has actually grown lately. I appreciate his self awareness and that he’s working hard because of it.

I wish his season had gone better, but it’s understandable why it didn’t. I’m not going to turn him into a villain simply for missing shots. There are more important things than playing basketball well.

As far as I’ve seen, Daye has accepted criticism and owned up to his mistakes. In the process, he’s made me a fan.
