Two Al Jefferson quotes from practice today (audio from ESPN 700):
–[If he’s playing tomorrow]: Oh yeah, most definitely I’m playing. I’m not going to let [the bruised knuckle] stop me from playing. Just gotta suck it up man, it’s part of life.
—We get paid a lot of money man. We don’t get paid a lot of money to miss time, especially for injuries that you can play through…basketball is my life, the fans don’t want to come see me dressed up in a suit.
Let’s appreciate Al for what he is: Not Boozer.
While we’re on the subject of Al Jefferson, check out 1:10 of the video preview that Locke did for Game 6. “Mississippi hooker”–that was my suggestion for Al’s sort-of hook shot, sort-of jumper move, and it scored a mention. :)
