Richards participated in a call with LA media (I bet he was so thrilled). Audio is after the jump via Anthony SanFilippo. Warning, it is very hard to listen to.
He said he was "reading it on the internet before [he] got the call [that he was traded]."
He was "at first shocked, then excited." Yeah, I doubt that. Also talks about Jeff Carter being his best friend, how much he loves Philly, and that they signed their contracts so they could play together for their careers. Respect.
