“It was the first practice. I had hamstring pull, third-degree hamstring pull, so I couldn’t participate in Summer League or the first practice. “We were there and I was sitting on the sideline. KG was just cussing at everybody. And when I say cussing at everybody, he was cussing at everybody including Kevin McHale. He was saying all kinds of ‘Come on out here and I’ll beat you down, too! You can’t guard me.’ Disrespectful stuff and Wally [Szczerbiak] subbed out, and I walked over to him, and I said, ‘Wally, does he do this all the time? Is this allowed?’ He said, ‘This is KG, bro. He does this every day.’ “KG is the second-best trash talker next to Gary Payton.”

Without the band, Nogueira hoped to revisit the bass class this season. He lamented that it didn’t make sense given how often the team has been on the road. “I live music 24 hours,” Nogueira said. “I try to live like a musician, but I don’t make money from it. Every day I’m studying different songs. Like, I like to pay attention to instruments. Like, this is what I’m looking for. I love it so much, music. I wish, one day, if I retire from basketball, to start, like, a career in music. This is my goal that I have.”
“One of the bands that I love so much and Canadians, people hate: Nickelback,” he said. “I don’t understand why people — because Canadian people, when you’re famous, they support you so much. They love to support famous Canadians. And I don’t understand because I grew up thinking Chad Kroeger is amazing, I love him. And when I came to Canada, people are like, ‘You like Nickelback?’ And everybody starts laughing in my face.”
