Chris Carrawell was on WXDU Sunday night and as usual had some classic
quotes. It's hard to read these and see the sense of humor and the bluntness
that make Cwell such a fun interview.
On the close games this year: "I'm aging quickly. I'm about
- On being a lottery pick: "uh...hopefully."
On this year's team: If we were 0-7 (people would say) well
Carrawell and Battier, those guys suck anyway."
On the NBA guys: Out of the group that went to the NBA, I didn't'
talk to Corey that MUCH.
On his buds: Elton...they SUCK but he's doing well...it's a
learning process for Will.
On Corey's Injury (he apparently misheard part of the question): I
dunno..Corey had some funny looking fingers. (injury)...the nba
rewards guys who are freaks and he's definitely a freak.
On last year's team: Even Chris Burgess was kind of mentioned ahead
of me...i was kind of the sixth man. I have the opportunity now to
show people I'm a good player...I don't get enough credit, what do i have to
do? (Joking response to comments about last year's team)
On Chappell: I asked him, Mike what's the problem here...maybe (you
should have picked) Michigan
On his class: When I saw Nate in the MCD game i thought, oh my god,
what did i do? Three players, it was almost like someone had to
leave...it was mike, it could have been nate or myself.
On Maggette and the UNC hat: Well that's Corey..you never know what
he's going to do..I won't be at Duke next year but you'll never see me with
a UNC hat...NEVER. He was a freshman...Something's not clicking up
On leadership: (the young guys) depend on us and it really hasn't
been like that at duke for awhile..this year we've gotten back to that.
On Coach Wo: I didn't react to it that well because i played
with him for two year...but it's been good. Wojo's always grabbing me
after practice...i have to thank him for helping me...No Coach Wojo for
me...if i call him that i'm playing with him.
The best moments in Cameron: #2 moment was DePaul...#1 was coming
back from 17 to beat UNC...
The UNC matchup: I keep up, I'm a junkie.. definitely
looking at Carolina, Va, Md...we eventually play those guys....but we have
to wait and see...
On Cota: Me and Ed have a great relationship...off the court...just
a couple of comments i didn't agree with...i just wanted him to give credit
where credit is due...but we're great friends.
When asked about a host's T-shirt: uh...yeah...yeah...(on the goat
t-shirts)...i like the raise the roof t-shirt better (with Duke)
- Question Not Heard: Definitely...I don't want to end up in the cba...(laughs)
On His Toughest Opponents: Steve Francis, ah, he wasn't that tough
(laughter)...Terrell McIntyre, Matt Harpring....(Duncan?)
no....everyone was caught up in the name...if he had gotten the ball he
would have killed me though.
