As I type this, new Grizz player Tayshaun Prince entered the game to a standing ovation and made his first shot.
But before the first game with new players, I got some audio from all angles: Mike Conley, Lionel Hollins & Tayshaun Prince. Technically, of course, these aren’t all first comments . . . but with Prince in uniform and before the new guys debut with the team, it’s still good stuff.
I like to use this audio because you don’t get cherry-picked quotes or soundbytes — you hear ALL of what Coach says, unfiltered.
Me: “Coach, of course there will be an adjustment period, but how do you see these guys helping out immediately, like right away?”
Me: *Blank stare*
Mike talks about being shellshocked before the OKC game; Tayshaun talks about playing with real quality bigs for the first time since his Sheed/McDyess/Big Ben days in Detroit; and Lionel Hollins . . . well, as always, he’s Lionel Hollins. Enjoy!
