NEWARK -- New Jersey Nets guard Keith Bogans admitted that he felt disrespected by the way his former team, the Chicago Bulls, handled the end of his tenure in Chicago. Bogans, who started every game for the Bulls a season ago, was pulled off the Berto Center floor just before the first official training camp practice on Dec. 9th. The Bulls decided not to pick up the team option they had for him and ended up waiving him a week later.
"Who wouldn't (feel disrespected)?" he said before Monday night's game against his former team. "We're all men first, man. We're men before basketball players. I don't want to say the wrong thing so I'm going to be quiet and let it go. Don't even ask no more about that."
