With the NBA Playoffs right around the corner, every teams is jockeying for position and trying to get a first round matchup that will be favorable to them. While, every team except for the Orlando Magic. We'll let Jameer Nelson's words speak for themself - here are his quotes on wanting to play the Detroit Pistons in the first round (via Need4Sheed):
I know we can beat them. I know we can. I think we can beat them in a series. We just got to figure them out.
The beauty of the quote lies in the fact that the Pistons swept the season series with the Magic (4-0). The realness of the quote lies in the fact that Nelson seems to be completely out of touch with reality - why would you want to do something that you've clearly been unable to do so far? Wouldn't you rather play someone that you know how to beat? Nevertheless, we respect Nelson's steez - if you're gonna go down, you might as well go down to the eventual 2007 (and 2008, 2009, 2010) NBA Champions.
We try to stay away from cliche quotes around here, but this seems like an apt time.
Being friends means never having to apologize. And being Real means never having to apologize for not having any connection to reality.
Editor's Note: I'm not sure if those last few sentences made any sense. But do I care? No.
