Morning Bog: Flip on LeBron
I'm on a plane heading to Las Vegas for a few days of Wizards Summer League excitement. What I'll do there, aside from throwing away most of my life savings while betting on WNBA games, I'm not exactly sure. In the meantime, a few quotes, Wiz and otherwise.
Flip Saunders, on facing the Cavs today: "Is LeBron playing? We might have a guy who could dunk on him, I don't know."
Jeff Pearlman, blogging: "According to a baseball source, the ballplayer [who tried to pick up a media intern in Houston] was a member of the Washington Nationals. Furthermore, because of the incident, the Nationals are now considering a permanent, all-encompassing ban of interns from the team's clubhouse."
Flip Saunders, on finding minutes for everybody: "I don't manage minutes. They do. Whoever can play, plays. If you can't play, you don't play. And the bottom line is the players have to understand that the idea of a team is understanding that."
Some pop star lackey from the Jonas Bros./Jordin Sparks show, to a Verizon Center security guy: "Don't touch me. Please. Do not. Touch me."
Rob Dibble, on Twitter: Sorry that I can't watch the HR Derby this year I will be at The Playboy Mansion getting ready for the second half....There's Pandas at The DC Zoo, we only have them for a short time, a rental. Let's keep them and send the people from AiG to China instead
Jessie Sapp, via Twitter: [Some dudes] shot the park up right before I was about to play...it looked like a old skool western out there....WOW
Ken Rosenthal, on the firing: "At worst, my initial story was premature, though I still believe it was accurate. Regardless, the Nats should have reacted differently, out of fairness to a man who represented their organization with class and decency. Once my story broke, the Nats had two reasonable choices: Fire Acta immediately. Or commit to him for the rest of the season, knowing the identity of the manager would not make one difference in their horrid team."
Rocky McIntosh, via Twitter: Miami I love yabut next yr for the break I'm going international go running with the bulls, wear a speedo in Spain w/big sunglasses on Feeding frenzy with sharks, go find the tooth fairy has anybody found her yet finally get a fake prosthetic arm and let one of those big,muddy, water catfish lock on I can pull it out without it ripping my arm off lol
Nick Young, on his '09 hair style of choice: I'm going to settle on one. I don't know, I might get the Tweeter to let everybody know like Shaq. I don't know yet."
