What were your stats for the season? "I do not know. I do not even keep up with them."

Grade your play this season and why? "About like a C, C+, B, or B-. As for why, I guess because our team did not play up to its ability. I have to take some responsibility for that. Everyone was looking for me to carry the team, and I guess I could not carry them far enough."
