Brewer wanted to stay with Knicks
After being the odd man out, Brewer expressed no hard feelings toward his former team
As it turns out, he never wanted to leave New York in the first place.
"It was tough," said Brewer, who was bought out by the Knicks. "I liked being a Knick. I felt like I could help but they didn't feel the same way. No hard feelings. I got in a better situation. I finally won a championship. I would have wanted to stay here in New York because New York is a great city."
The Knicks were banged up in the playoffs, with Billups and Amare Stoudemire both nursing injuries.
"I felt I could have came here and I just wanted to help. I felt it was a good situation for me. Up and down situation," he said. "Play some D, though. I guess it didn't work out right."
Brewer told ESPNdeportes.com that he held no grudges against the Knicks. After being bought out, he signed on with the Mavericks.
Brewer's team, OOH Way Records, started the evening's first game of a triple-header, but the game was stopped by rain with OOH Way leading 54-50.
The game was delayed by an hour and resumed at the Gaucho's gym. Brewer had 10 points in the 70-65 win over Skull Gang Records.
Brewer said he would think about playing on Monday night. A win and his team advances to the title game.
"It's fun especially with tonight getting another win. We get to move on. It's tournament play," Brewer said. "I'm in the city so I gotta play, especially in the tournaments. It feels good. It's fun. Just the environment even in the gym is crazy.
"I think that's the best part of the span," said Brewer of the rain delay, something only seen in baseball and tennis.
"We got to play outside. Then a little rain comes down. Moving in. It's packed in the gym. It's crazy."
Beasley, who had gotten into an altercation with a fan nine days ago, scored 18 points but Team 914 was edged by Team Nike 71-69 in a game played at the Gauchos gym in the Bronx because of rain.
Beasley declined to talk to ESPNdeportes.com after the game, but he interacted with a group of kids afterward on his team's bench, giving one boy his game-worn jersey and shorts while another boy was the recipient of his yellow shoes.
