Game 4: Flash, Flashbeagle, and What They Might Be Saying In Their Own Heads


After Game 4, from the fictitious locker room of the Heat:

Dwyane Wade: “Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.  I’m Flash!  Flashdance! Snoopy and Woodstock!  Wait, that was Flashbeagle.  Six stolen hearts from the San Antonio faithful.  Don’t ask me about my knee anymore.   Yes, it’s sore.  I’m out the door.”

“Mr. L”: “I needed that name change, man.  Be aggressive!  Be, be aggressive!”

Chris Bosh: “That was infinitely better than Game 3.  I will never understand the ups and downs of an NBA playoff series. My goodness, what a sudden turn-around.  That is why I always say, one game at a time.  No I’m not in AA.”

 

From the fictitious locker room of the Spurs:

Tim Duncan: “We started off playing a best-of-seven.  Then it was best-of-five.  Now it’s best-of-three.  Soon, it’ll be best-of-one.  I like numbers.  We need Manu to find the way-back machine, and spark that second unit.  We need Gary Neal to keep hitting 29-footers.  We need Tony healthy.  Don’t worry.  We’ll be ready.”

Tony Parker: “Yes, it hurts a little bit.  I tell you the truth, man.  I’m okay, but it’s not 100%.  I’m a little hamstrung by the hamstring.  Chicken Wing.  Burger King.  Bling bling.  Sing. Sing.  I knew a guy back in Paris.  Ex-con in Sing Sing.  Not sure how he got to Paris.  Great pick-pocket.  We’ll be fine on Sunday.”

Kawhi Leonard: “Let’s play basketball.  I did the same thing I’ve done this series.  Work hard. Physical defense.  Mr. L just played great.  What can I do?  Just play basketball.”

Danny Green: “Pop is drawing up a few plays.  I can’t get too specific.  Sunday you’re going to see some long-long-long range shooting.  Let’s just put it at that.  Let it fly.  Fly so high.  In the sky.  A Reading Rainbow…swish.”

Gary Neal: “Prove ’em wrong.  Prove ’em wrong.  You’re a scorer.  You’re a scorer.  Get some more….er.”

Manu Ginobili: “I am just one player.  I am 36 years old.  Some writers say I’m like an old sports car.  I am more like an old shooting guard.  Take a look at NBA history.  We don’t age well.  Still…watch my miracle no-look passes.  So what if I don’t score?  Did you score any points today?”
