Arron Afflalo has mastered the passive-aggressive ellipses.
Within five years, all major publications will have subtweeting analysts, whose entire professional purpose will be to interpret tweets and Instagram posts — like the above one from Arron Afflalo — for the rest of us who aren’t fluent in subtweet.
We can take our educated guesses on what Afflalo was talking about when he posted a selfie with quite the telling caption Wednesday. Or was it not telling? Because we still don’t know exactly what he’s talking about.
Here’s what Afflalo wrote below the photo:
Two years of just control what you can control right ? …. While making years of growth appear as if it has just stopped … Yeah ok …. 10th year coming up and this time around this sh*t won’t be forgotten …. #godfirst #anythingformydaughter #basketballtaughtmelife #ilovemyfamily #unimaginablegivebackcomingtomycity
Knicks coach Kurt Rambis moved Afflalo to the bench in mid-March after he had been the team’s starting shooting guard all season. Afflalo didn’t take kindly to it and said that Rambis never even had a conversation with him about the switch, though Rambis claimed otherwise.
“Two years of control” is a clear reference to the two-year, $16 million contract Afflalo signed with the Knicks this past summer. But the second year of that deal is a player option. If the Compton, California, native chooses to, he can become a free agent again this offseason. It certainly seems like things are heading in that direction.
