I know we talked about Courtney Lee at length already today, but I did come across some more quotes from yesterday that I wanted to throw up here. Enjoy:
“I’m going to be a man on a mission,” Lee said Thursday afternoon after a training session at the IMG Academy. “I just hope they’ll be happy for me when I grow into the player that they wish they had. I’d like them to one day say ‘I wish we would have kept him.”’
“The trade shocked me. After the Finals, Dwight and I were talking about things we had to do to get back and win a championship together. He joked about us being the next Shaq and Penny [Hardaway] with the Magic,” he said. “I know it’s a business, and trades happen, but it’s not something you forget, even when you look forward like I am.”
“I’ll take what I learned in Orlando and put it to use in New Jersey. It’s a great opportunity for me,” he said. “It’s more of an opportunity to be one of the go-to guys, to really showcase my full talents. New Jersey has a good young team, and I’m going to be a big part of it.”
Good stuff. I am excited to see him in a Nets uniform.
