— Dwight Howard, on why he and Kobe Bryant can co-exist and why he absolutely doesn’t get it
— Steve Nash, on being a liar
I really don’t give a shit that he’s got his championship*. LeBron still doesn’t get it: books belong on bookshelves and you drink Vitamin Water before games. Idiot.
If I was Doris Burke at the end of Game 5, I don’t ask a question about legacy or any regret for The Decision. I ask him for a book report on the Katniss/Gale/Peeta love triangle.
I love that Magic is buying the Dodgers, but anybody else worried that Dodger Stadium might get renamed?
Don’t get used to that y’all. It’s not even that. Man, listen, I can shoot 3’s. OK? We need to cut this, alright? Because I don’t want no more questions about this — I can shoot 3’s, alright? You’re all acting like I’m 50 and I’m out here on one leg and a cane. Some nights are better than others. I’m human, I mess up. I make mistakes. But I can shoot 3’s.
I don’t shoot 3’s because we have one of the all-time greatest 3-point shooters in history [in Ray Allen]. We have Paul Pierce, who has won the 3-point contest. We have other guys in here that can shoot 3’s. That ain’t my role here. My role is to get those guys open. And if they throw it to me — shoot it, dunk it, pass it — OK, cool. But I can shoot 3’s.
When I walk around the streets, y’all stop acting like y’all shocked that I can shoot 3’s. Everybody in Boston, everybody in the world, everybody in Minnesota, everybody wherever I’m at — Concord, Lexington, Burlington — I can shoot 3’s, OK. Let that go. I can shoot 3’s. Y’all are acting all shocked like you ain’t seen a black guy hit a 3. The hell’s going on with y’all? I can shoot 3’s, alright? Doc was yelling at me today — shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot. Finally, I just shot the 3 and said, ‘Huh! Is that what you want!?’
I can shoot 3’s. Look do not get all, ‘Shoot a 3!’ I don’t want that. You know how [the fans] used to do it with [Brian Scalabrine]. ‘Shoooooot!’ No, don’t do that; Don’t do that to me. I’m not on the Celtics to be out here shooting 3’s. I am here to do other things, not shoot 3’s. But I can shoot 3’s, OK.
Any more questions? Alright, I’m outta here. Go Pats!
