Quotes of the Week XI

31 05 2010

I’m going to try to keep this Quotes of the Week feature as a weekly component to this site. My commitment to it has been questionable since I don’t really make the time to scout quotes, but after re-reading a Phil Jackson comment about Ron Artest being a “naive, innocent lamb” I’ve decided that I just can’t let this thing go. Here is a combination of quotes from the past two weeks. I’ll aim to post these on Sundays rather than Fridays, as I did before.

Magic big man/token European Marcin Gortat on why he received a technical foul during Game 5 of the Magic-Celtics series:

“I was trying to listen to what Paul Pierce was saying because he was complaining about something.” Doesn’t he always?

Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez on manager Freddi Gonzalez benching him for not hustling after a ball. Ramirez claimed to be hurt:
“He can do whatever he fucking wants.”

Ramirez explaining why he didn’t run faster after the ball and how that relates to Gonzalez:
“He doesn’t understand that. He never played in the big leagues.”

Ramirez, undisputedly the Marlins’ best player, on why he wouldn’t apologize to his team for not hustling after the ball:
“We got a lot of people dogging it after ground balls. They don’t apologize.”

Magic head coach Stan Van Gundy on JJ Redick not calling a timeout toward the end of Game 2 of the Celtics series:
“I’m not going to jump his ass, but I’m also not going to make an excuse.”

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs on the Giants-Jets rivalry in New York:
“We will never be the ‘other team’ for the simple reason that we have a Super Bowl ring.”

I remember when Brandon Jacobs mattered.

And the entire Celtics team complains, not just Pierce.
