    Translation: "Notice how I said 'YOU'RE' going to play them. I NEVER said 'I' am going to play them. I'm pretty clever huh!? - See, you guys can't call me a liar now! ...I said 'your'! ...so, ...so there!"

    Why would the reporter be the one who plays them? That's my job if I were him.

    Which is why I think Flip is a master of waffling...maybe he should change his name to IHOP

    I can't even remember to play Amir let alone trying to change tactics in the middle of a game.

    He's basically saying, "You idots can't do what I tell you to do. What's the point in coaching?"

    Did Doc Rivers really say you can keep time by the predictability of the Pistons?

    Translation: "Look, ...I'm not one of those coaches who likes to get into all that 'lineup' crap. If you all wanna talk about it each night I'll do my best; ...but I really don't know what the heck I'm doing. ...Man, I shoulda' took that job with the Gophers when I had the chance. Now THAT'S a team that I could have some regular season success and an early exit in the big dance and not really catch too much heat."

    This one is fresh off the todays presses:

    "Sometimes it's tough to get into a total rhythm," Saunders said. "But we've got to find out some things and know we're going to have our solid nine, 9 1/2 guys when the playoffs start."

    He's a coach so ahead of his time, that he will find a way to make use of 1/2 a player. There's no telling where his genius will take us. It's probably possible to use 1/4 Afflalo with 1/8 Hunter and 1/8 Dixon thrown in for good measure.
