“I feel like his first game, boy, he might wet his pants ’cause he’s going to be so excited.”
—Vince Carter, talking about teammate Marcin Gortat on KTAR in Phoenix (via Sports Radio Interviews). Gortat was just traded with Carter from the Orlando Magic to the Phoenix Suns, so he is going from limited minutes backing up Dwight Howard to what should be extensive minutes with the Suns. Gortat has been eager for more minutes for years. Gortat and Carter likely will debut for the Suns against the Heat on Thursday. If Heat players are shying away from Gortat, you’ll know why.
