Reporters: Is Rodney OK?
Martin: That's part of playing sports. You get hit. You bleed a little bit.
Q. Frank, I don't want you to ... I know you said you guys wouldn't expand on the statement--
A. So why are you asking?
Q. I'm not asking you about it. How emotional--
A. I'm not speaking about people that are not here today.
Q. Did Rodney lose a tooth?
A. I got no idea. I don't know. I broke my nose three times. It's part of playing sports. He'll be all right.
Q. How do you think the guys who did play responded to being shorthanded?
A. We lost. Obviously not good enough. We're not about losing here. We're not about playing hard and coming up close and moral victories. That's not what we built our program about. We lost, so it wasn't good enough.
Q. Any hints of the leadership without those guys on the court?
A. You guys are trying to get under my skin today, aren't you? I've been pretty respectful of the media my whole career.
Q. I saw some guys--
A. I don't want to hear anything else about leadership about anyone other than the guys on the basketball court. I do not want you to refer any questions again about anybody who was not dressed and in uniform here today.
Q. It looked like Jamar and Rodney--
A. They tried. They tried. They tried. Until this team doesn't find that character and that leadership, we're going to continue to flounder around.
