Quentin Richardson played a decent game last night. He was crappy (3-10) from the field, but was clearly pushing for rebounds and giving his all on defense. His real performance, though, came after the action. Check out Q's carefree transitions between verb tenses and hints at a cage match to come, via Skeets (originally on Boston.com):
"I think a few of those guys know they can’t just say anything to us," said Richardson. "I’m just real curious to see what those guys will be saying if we weren’t in a basketball league, and didn’t have referees. I mean it wouldn’t be the same story. I mean they are the world champions and rah-rah-rah, but the tough part I don’t factor. I come from a neighborhood where you can say what you want to say, but 'til you do something, it don’t mean nothing. Some of those guys are happy to get a ring, but you ain’t been in the league long enough to talk to people like that. I don’t have a lot of respect for that. Like I said, I’d be curious to hear what they have to say in a different setting, I’d be very curious to see that.”
I understand that Q has some history with these Celtics, and it's probably pretty irritating to get an earful from the likes of Eddie House, but...what?
