"My Swag Was Phenomenal"

Here's Gil last night, after the game. He went on like this for hours, but my video battery eventually conked out. That's what's causing the beeping noise at the end. But still, despite some dodgy camera work, this is worth your while. My favorite parts:

1) Antawn Jamison, from across the locker room, attempting to dispute Arenas's account of the final play. Gil isn't having it.

2) When Official Beat Writer Ivan Carter tries asking a question about his range, and Gil says "I don't know why this is a surprise to you guys now."

3) Gil's sweater. That's what DeShawn might call a "grown-man look."

4) "My swag was phenomenal."

Wow. Gil and Brian Carroll have similar taste in sweaters.

That right there is why so many Wiz fans have a man crush on Gil.

Can't see the video. All I get is a "Loading..." screen. Can someone put it on youtube? thanks.

That's not true! He clearly is saying "Quality Shot" after he turns away, watch the replay!

What, no love for my quality shot follow up question? That was gold!

Wait, what was the follow-up question? And where? Here? On the video?

Has anyone managed to get this on YouTube?

That was me that asked if Gil considered the game winner a quality shot at about the 3:09 mark.

Nice work Steins! I was all set to complain about the video too, but it actually worked, first time. Usually it plays the stupid ad and then won't play the video. . . ANYWAYS, that was sweet. And here's the love for the quality shot follow up: Love.

When has a video of an interview been that good, ever? I'm thinking of what it's like here in Denver with Iverson. Every freakin' interview is like a postmortem - win or lose. The NBA needs to fly Gil around to teach some of these lugs to have a personality! MY SWAG WAS PHENOMENAL!!!!
