“This is why I’m not a GM; I would do everything I could not to pay this guy,” Sabathia said. “…You think you can play somewhere else? Nobody else wants you. You can’t shoot the basketball. This guy is walking around like he’s LeBron. Go the f—k home. You only only showed up cuz you want to get paid. It’s obvious you don’t want to be here. [Joel] Embiid is tired of this s—t. Everybody’s tired of his s—t.

“I’d literally do what they just did. I would suspend his a—for as long as I can so not have to pay that motherf---er. Period.”
