We first talked about Jeff Teague on Instagram back in early May, when he posted a cryptic message that was (like many of his posts) deleted. More recently, Teague revealed that he played with a torn patella.
On Monday, Teague gave us yet another Instagram post, this one with more of a "feel good" tone to it to the Hawks than the two aforementioned posts. This one, aimed at coach Mike Budenholzer:
The caption read:
I got a lot of respect for this man it's rare for people to care about you in this business but coach Bud is one those guys who wants the best for you on and off the court #myguy
You can take from this post what you will, but at the very least, we know he likes Mike Budenholzer. Many questioned that at times this season because of the variation in Teague's playing time. But clearly he knows it's all for what's best for the team, and at the end of the day, Bud has his back.
But, let the rumors fly.
