Quotes of the Week V

18 02 2010

I swear one of these weeks I’ll post this on Friday morning, as originally intended. The post is up today because I won’t be around tomorrow morning. It’s a shortened list of quotes yet again but these still pack some power.

Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski on whether the Nets new owner would offer him the coaching job:
“The guy’s Russian, right? You think he’d hire a Polish guy? No one’s contacted me, and if they do, I think ‘nyet’ would be easy for me to say.” Maybe he’s just playing ‘hard to get.’

David Stern speaking about an anonymous NBA executive after the exec criticized NBA players during a discussion of the league’s contract negotiations with the player’s union:
“And the players were upset with those quotes, which I find cowardly, if they were actually said. And if I ever found out who said them, they would be dealt with.” Moral of the story: DO NOT piss off David Stern.

Charles Barkley’s retort to Kevin Harlan’s comment that it’d be impressive if Knicks Celtics guard Nate Robinson jumped over four Cowboys cheerleaders during the NBA All-Star Dunk Contest:
“It’d be impressive if he was taller than one of them.”

Tony Stewart in response to reporter’s question about NASCAR being too safe:

“The media center is getting boring in here and it’s too safe because y’all got four legs on your chairs. So we can start sawing legs off, what do you think about that? You like that idea? Are you paying attention?”

Kobe Bryant in a recent GQ profile. Read into it what you will, you pervert:

“Eeew, I’d be a little uncomfortable Googling myself. People sit there—and Google themselves? That’s kind of weird.”

Interaction between ESPN NHL dude Barry Melrose and First Take host Jay Crawford on how Melrose keeps his crow’s feet at bay (this was on-air):
Crawford: “How do you fight [crow’s feet]?”
Melrose: “Chicken shit.”
Crawford: “What’s that?’
Melrose: “Chicken shit.” [laughter on set]

Note written on a baseball from Deion Sanders to ESPN’s Buster Olney in 1989. Olney wrote a scathing feature on Deion for the Nashville Banner while Deion played on the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate team, the Nashville Sounds:
“Keep writing like that your whole life and you’ll always be a loser.”

Dovid Efune, a confidant of Jewish boxer Yuri Foreman, on the significance of Foreman’s upcoming fight in New York versus Miguel Cotto. The fight, originally slated for June 5 at Yankee Stadium, might have to move to Madison Square Garden because a bar mitzvah held at a Yankee Stadium suite will also have use of the center field scoreboard:
“The magnitude of this event cannot be overstated. It may be the biggest Jewish sporting event of all time, certainly since David fought Goliath.”

Hawks guard Joe Johnson speaking to a reporter about NBA All-Star Weekend annually coinciding with Valentine’s Weekend:

“Listen, I try to get rid of my girlfriend by Valentine’s Day.”

Dwight Howard’s girlfriend gift advice to the same reporter:
“Just send her some flowers and some edible fruit things, whatever you call them.”
