I heard that as "it's not his fault he screened me, trying to block that shot is the play to make there, everytime". How they heard it was "he has to successfully block that shot, he has to make that play there".

Who's take on it was right? I can't swear to know, but my take on it is more consistent with how Leighton has carried himself before and since. If he really was blaming O'Donnelll, then it's the only time I've ever heard him do it.

you understood it right...

its only the people who want to find him at fault read it as Leights throwing the D under the bus..
