"There was a lot of talk after the game, apparently, so Cheik felt it was the right thing to do to tell the players first before it came out in the press," Ledesma said. "I assumed I was doing it the next day, but it came as a surprise. It was the right thing to do and I'm kind of emotional, so there was a lot of tears and crying – yeah, pretty embarrassing – but at this point, I do it so often, I'm cool with it. There was a lot of emotion and real emotion. Again, not sadness, just emotion because of all the things we shared together."
