That will be $300 an hour
Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni, on his team's difficulties in the first half of the season: "If we can erase memories, I'll have to go to somebody's couch and try to erase my memory bank."
Oh, now they're BFF?
Boston center Kevin Garnett, on being All-Star teammates with Carmelo Anthony after they nearly came to blows during and after a recent game over salacious comments Garnett made to Anthony: "From my understanding, me and Melo are fine. I don't anticipate any friction. You know, I'm a man, he's a man. I don't think that situation will boil over into this and spoil the All-Star weekend. I think we're much more professional than that."
JaVale being JaVale
Denver Coach George Karl, on center JaVale McGee's tendency to try to impress: "I think JaVale tries to find the spectacular and forces the spectacular when if you just let Andre Miller and Ty [Lawson] let us orchestrate the game, something big time will happen. But I want him to be more Tim Duncan-like. I tell him I like Tim Duncan. I want Tim Duncan."
