“Is this going to stop now? It’s probably going to continue. There’s still going to be rumors that happen. But as long as we understand – as players and coaches and everyone in this building – what’s real and what the truth is, then we’re OK,” Nagy said. “Yeah, that comes with the territory, and they are distractions.
