Favorite NBA Player Quote?

I'm just curious of some of the good ones you guys have heard out there. I've got to say my all time favorite quote has to be out of Ron Artests mouth.

"I get up for everybody, I played my son in the backyard and I didn't let him score."

I really can see him saying that and doing that. Just taking his kid out and destroying him on a fisher price hoop. Swatting balls over the roof and what not haha.

Iverson

entire quote:

Iverson: "If I can't practice, I can't practice. It is as simple as that. It ain't about that at all. It's easy to sum it up if you're just talking about practice. We're sitting here, and I'm supposed to be the franchise player, and we're talking about practice. I mean listen, we're sitting here talking about practice, not a game, not a game, not a game, but we're talking about practice. Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game last it's my last but we're talking about practice man. How silly is that?

Now I know that I'm supposed to lead by example and all that but I'm not shoving that aside like it don't mean anything. I know it's important, I honestly do but we're talking about practice. We're talking about practice man. (laughter from the media crowd) We're talking about practice. We're talking about practice. We're not talking about the game. We're talking about practice. When you come to the arena, and you see me play, you've seen me play right, you've seen me give everything I've got, but we're talking about practice right now. (more laughter)

yeah, that was pretty funny. I also liked his "appology" when he took some flak for that comment, " I appologize if I have offended any horses or cowboys."

As a Laker fan, let me say I can't stand Shaq. I can go on for days about some of the stupid stuff he has said, including about half of his "Shaq Talks Back" autobiography. Here are a few that I remember off the top of my head:

On Kurt Rambis being the coach of the Lakers during the lockout season: "We were never gonna win with Kurt as coach. You know why, because I can't play hard for someone I don't respect, and he did'nt have my respect. I know I'm supposed to be the leader and all, but I could'nt motivate myself to work hard for Kurt. That team was never going anywhere."- I guess the 20+ million were'nt enough, huh. No wonder Kobe ran you out of town and Wade dissed you too.

Here's another good one right after he got traded to Miami and suddenly was in better shape then he had been in for years:
" Pat Riley asked me to lose some weight, so I did it. Simple as that. In LA, they always wanted wanted me to be the biggest and strongest, they never asked me to lose weight."- Half of Los Angeles choked on their drink when they heard that.

And of course: "Kobe, tell me how my a.ss tastes."- I got one for you Shaq, tell me how a single playoff game victory tastes. Oh, that's right, you have to go back 4 seasons ago when Wade carried you before you remember what that felt like.

Jason Kidd

When he tried to say his team was on the right track making improvements he said "We're turning it around 360 degrees". I guess he didn't take the math curiculim at Cal.

Real Players Quotes

It was a reference to RNQ by Rhymefest (produced by Premo, not his best beat, but it is at least by the best). I would have to say I have many I have heard, Iverson's practice rant to me is almost as ridiculous as "both teams played hard", but the best ever is:

"WHO WANTS TO SEX MUTOMBO!!??"

Hands down :)

And hell, sometimes, when you

And hell, sometimes, when you have been "the man" your entire career, it is not a bad break every once in a while to let someone else handle the spotlight as you slip out the side door. It's nice to know that, as the last sands drip through the hourglass of your career, the team you are leaving is in good hands.

“Kyle is an alpha-dog, he is

“Kyle is an alpha-dog, he is a leader,” Casey said. “He plays like a pit bull. He is a different type of player than Jose, a different type of point guard and we need that type of toughness, that approach that he brings to the table.”

Casey likes and respects

Casey likes and respects Calderon and the easiest way to boost his playing time is to play Lowry and Calderon together.

McGuire and Acy can challenge

McGuire and Acy can challenge for power forward minutes, but they are starting off at a significant disadvantage unless one of the incumbents fails to live up to expectations during the preseason.

This season, the battle for

This season, the battle for playing time in Toronto is being decided based on a player’s ability to help the team win games now. Player development is being shuffled off to one-on-one work with the assistant coaches. Lowry, Calderon, DeRozan, Fields, Kleiza, Bargnani and Valanciunas have their spots in Coach Casey’s rotation leaving Ross, Davis, Johnson, Gray and McGuire to fight for the one, two or possibly three spots left.

Both Griffin and center

Both Griffin and center DeAndre Jordan were notably vocal through defensive rotations (more so earlier in the scrimmage than later, but this was a very informal setting).

"Just some of the things I

"Just some of the things I wanted to do – or play my game, which is more aggressive and more physical -- I couldn't do it because I was limited strength-wise," Horford said. "And that was something I've been trying to deal with all summer is to try and get my strength back. I'm not 100 percent as far as my strength but I'm feeling pretty good right now."

Horford credited the patient

Horford credited the patient approach of his rehab therapist. Horford said that as a player, the urge is to rush through the process.

This isn’t O’Neal’s first jab

This isn’t O’Neal’s first jab at Howard. When O’Neal played for the Cavaliers, he told reporters he’s the “real Superman,” in reference to Howard’s occasional imitations of the comic book superhero. O’Neal then went out and played perhaps his best game with Cleveland.

As for Leuer, Scott said, “He definitely has 3-point range, much more athletic than people think he is, and he’s a tough kid.”
