Yeah, it's kinda late, but still...

http://www.hoopstvon...rinterview.html

HTV: What about the NBA do you talk to the young guys on the Vipers about?

SMUSH: I don't tell them about life in the NBA. I pretty much tell them about what it takes for them to get to the NBA - hard work, dedication and determination. Guys in the D-League have to fight through some adversity to get to the NBA level and that also takes discipline.


Oh, the irony. It's like Shaq educating fat people on proper nutrition...

HTV: In your pro hoops career, you've accomplished a tremendous amount. You've played in the NBA, in Europe and the D-League and you're a playground legend as well. A lot of guys with your resume would call it quits and coast. What keeps you going and pushes you to continue to grind it out every day?

SMUSH: It's the love for the game. Love for the game, man. Also it's a job. People sometimes see this as fun or as a sport, but they also have to understand that this is how I pay the bills. So you have to understand that I go into this with the attitude that I want to get better at my craft and I want to make more money in order to support myself and my family.

Except, you still owed that lady $12... :angry:

How about this little gem from him:

HTV: What is it like to play with Kobe?

SMUSH: Ohh boy. That's an alley I won't go down.

I'm a DIE HARD Clippers fan, and proud. I respect the Lakers and watch them every chance I get.

Respect me and I'll respect you. Don't respect me... we'll cross that bridge when we get there :)

How about this little gem from him:

I don't really don't understand what it means... But if it means "Oh boy, it sucked", damn... He's lucky he never played with Michael Jordan... He would chew him alive, and make him cry... The 80's MJ was so bad, it was 10x worse than what he did to Kwame...

If he isn't the proof that Kobe makes team mates better by playing with him, I don't know what else to say to make the haters shut up... I mean, dayam... From 10 PPG starting PG playing for Kobe, Phil Jackson and P&G to a D-Leaguer, he didn't even make it to Europe... That's like from supervisor of a company to a guy washing toilet bowls...

Chucky Atkins and Brian Cook are more lovable compared to this ingrate...

An alley you won't go down?

...

I remember my favorite quote by Smush right after the 81 game...

"Well I thought our defense was really good tonight."

:lol: :lol: :lol: x 81.

Smush HATED playing with Kobe. He was jealous. Everytime i asked about Kobe, he'd change the subject.
In fact, he was jealous over just about everyone on the team.
