All cobbled from last night's Warrior win.
On Lawrence Frank:
"The first player to go is usually the coach."
After Mike Fratello took issue with a long-winded Miller contention that is too ludicrous to repeat here, Miller replied with:
"We're not here for lollipop and kisses."
On Josh Boone's touch from the free throw line:
"What's funny, looking at his free throw stroke, [and] being a shooter myself, it looks really good. His mechanics are good, his follow-through is good. Now I'm just wondering if it's a matter of mechanics."
Or the follow-through, even.
Then there's this back and forth between Marv Albert and Reggie, after Albert brought up Kiki Vandeweghe's tutelage of Boone:
Marv: "Kiki was a terrific FT shooter in his career."
Reg: "Yes, he was. Terrific scorer, shooter, everything."
Eh, let's just stick with "terrific scorer, shooter." Anything beyond that left a little to be desired.
Finally, after Monta Ellis made a driving layup:
"Without the pity-pack and the dribbling, he's exactly like Dwyane Wade."
What the hell is a "pity-pack," and where can I get one?
