"I'm disappointed Rasheed didn't say 82 wins. No, at the end of the day you still have to go out there an win . . . or not. What I care about is winning the last game of the [post]season. That's the only number I care about."
I guess I'm becoming wishy-washy, but I think I agree with Doc. Talk doesn't really matter. Sure, it might provide bulletin board material. But does that material help the other team win? Does it score baskets in the fourth quarter? On the other hand, talking does reflect team character. I'm not so sure I want to spend the entire season reading about our players' Namath-like quotes.
