Hard-Hitting Questions at Wiz Workouts
I missed much of the post-Wiz workout interviews today. I saw Gilbert walking down a VC hallway and tried to catch up with him but he made it into the locker room before I could grab him. Gotta work on my 40 times.
When I returned, Florida's Lee Humphrey had just finished up his group media session, but then he was stopped by WUSA cameraman Dave Satchell, who had a request. Satch wanted Lee to record a shout-out for WUSA's Matt King, who evidently is a Gators fan.
"Wait wait, shoot this," Fox 5's Diane Roberts said to her cameraman.
"Say something to Matt King," Satchell continued. "What should we have him say?"
"Gooooooo Gators!" someone suggested.
"Matt, thanks for the support all the years," Satchell said. "Or something stupid, whatever."
"Hey Matt King, this is Lee Humphrey, just want to say thanks for all the support. You know the Gators are the best, so keep giving us the support. Thanks," Humphrey said.
"Now Lee, over here on this side we have a Rich Murphy," Diane Roberts said. "He's a huge Gators fan as well, and he knows Matt. So you've got to say hi to Rich if you're going to say hi to Matt."
"All right," Humphrey said. "Rich, I just said hey to Matt, want to say hey to you. Uh, go Gators, number one, uh, we'll try to keep it up for you."
"Ok, any more messages we've got to give out to anybody?" asked Wizards PR guy Zack Bolno.
Then Humphrey was turned over to me, so I could ask him about blogs.
(In case you're wondering about the workouts, Humphrey was bombing, looking just like the player that slayed Mason in the 2006 Final Four, Daequan Cook made a fair number of shots and looked like an NBA player, Dwight Brewington (a Providence transfer who went to Liberty) was there, wearing hearing aids in both ears, as was Fairleigh Dickinson's Michael Peeples, although the latter two didn't speak to the media, since the cameras didn't want them and I couldn't think of anything to ask. The workouts were conducted by assistant coaches and trainers; Milt Newton, Ernie Grunfeld and Eddie Jordan all watched, and chatted to the players after they finished.)
