Mike Conley on Lack of Respect: ‘It’s Gotten More Frustrating as I Get Older’
Mary Altaffer/Associated Press
In an interview with The Athletic’s Michael Lee, Conley talked about how a lack of All-Star nods and awards has led to frustration:
“It’s gotten more frustrating as I get older. I’m 31 now. I’m 12 years in. At some point, you know the game will have to end for you. Hopefully, it’s seven, eight years from now, but at the end of the day, when I look back on it, and all that I’ve accomplished in my career and you think about all of those things and there are so many missed opportunities for recognition, in different ways. And that’s been eating at me, for a while.”
Conley appeared in just 12 games last season due to injury, but he has bounced back this season to average a career-high 21.1 points, 6.5 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game.
