The Golden State Warriors waived Omri Casspi, but he didn’t take it personally.

The last offseason Golden State Warriors signed Omri Casspi on a one-year, minimum deal. The experience forward could have signed a more lucrative deal last summer, but he decided to sign with the biggest contender. Casspi has played more regular season games (552) than any active player who has yet to see playoff action and this year should have been the one where he would finally taste the playoffs.

However, the reigning NBA champion waived Casspi on Sunday. “The doctors said they couldn’t give me a shot into the bone, which is the real problem,” Casspi told  “The Sacramento Bee” on Sunday night. “The ankle is fine. I could have played except for the bruise.”

Despite being waived by Warriors Casspi stayed modest about it as he understands what business is. “When we met with (Warriors GM) Bob (Myers) last night, Steve Kerr kept looking down. I told him, ‘I love you guys. I understand.’ I just feel if I could have ever gotten healthy, I’d be on on the playoff roster. But what are you going to do? This is a hard business sometimes.”
