We've been dealing with a large family reunion the last few days and so are a bit off our normal pace, for which we ask your understanding. We missed a few things, including this very cool article about the relationship between Nolan Smith and Quinn Cook.Â
We also hadn't gotten a chance to discuss the much ballhooed trade of Dwight Howard, which also saw Chris Duhon become a Laker and Josh McRoberts move to the Magic.
Nor did we get a chance to note the vintage K response to a stupid reporter who wondered if the U.S actually needed coaching:
"None. None. You got it. Absolutely none. I'm out every night with my family, drunk as a skunk. Wait 'til you see me tonight. I'll get in at six. You're all invited to come out with me. We just roll out the damn ball. You got it. I don't know how you figured it out."
Apparently, some foreign journalists still misunderstood: âKevin, Coach K says he has been going out drinking a lot. What have you â¦â
