HoopsHype Nazr Mohammed rumors

May 11, 2013 Updates

When everyone else watched Chicago's Nazr Mohammed make a run at James, shove him tumbling onto his back on Friday night, the Bulls witnessed something else: confirmation of a conspiracy. Mohammed earned the ejection, and the rest of these Bulls earned the indignation and outrage that they need for public retaliation. "We're well aware of what's going on," Thibodeau seethed late Friday. "I'm watching how things are going. I watch very closely. What I'm seeing is… "…We'll adjust accordingly." Yahoo! Sports

“I’m sitting back here looking at the play and I’m just disappointed,” Mohammed said. “I wanted to be out there so bad. I wanted to help my teammates win the game, and to be back here watching over something like a push … I’m disappointed I let somebody else cause a reaction like that when I knew there was going to be so much of a microscope on the game and the physicality.” CBSSports.com

Nazr Mohammed started at center for coach Gregg Popovich when the Spurs defeated Richard Hamilton and the Pistons in the 2005 NBA Finals. Beyond that bond, Mohammed has fond memories of the 1½ seasons he played for Popovich, who sounded a bit like Phil Jackson with his unconventional methods. "Pop's great. He's a terrific coach. Everybody knows that," Mohammed said Sunday. "The success of his teams and the respect that he gets from his players and ex-players says it all. He's a good person and a good man. "He did some unbelievable things. Sometimes he comes in and you think it's going to be about the game and he might talk to you about current events. And this is after a loss. You're like, 'Oh. Cool.' I got a lot of respect for him and how he operates." Chicago Tribune

Few big men possess the ability to switch and guard small ballhandlers like Asik can. But with preseason averages of 8.4 points and 6.8 rebounds in just 19 minutes, Mohammed is off to a strong start for his hometown team. "Nazr is like having Omer still here," Taj Gibson said. "He's real familiar with everything already. He's more back to the basket (offensively) and helps me a lot just from the standpoint of being a veteran." Mohammed has brushed aside all praise. "I know I can do more," he said. "I feel very confident in the things that I can do. And I believe in the system Coach has in. It puts me in positions to show the things I do well. So I know I can do better." Chicago Tribune
