The only 3 players to earn flop fines this season were Gortat, P.J. Hairston and C.J. Watson. The application is totally arbitrary
Before Clint Capela, the last player to spend all season on a roster and see more minutes in playoffs than RS was Marcin Gortat in 2008.
Gortat referred to Gooden as "Drewski" once in his exit interview.
Gortat said he's going to play for Poland this summer for possibly the last time.
Both Gortat and Butler said the Wizards would still be playing if Wall hadn’t gotten hurt.
Gortat said he loves playing with Nene but wants to play with a stretch-4 more often next season.
Gortat said he had some personal issues he didn't want to get into that sidetracked him during the season.
Gortat on his contract, compared what he makes 2 what players will get next summer when TV money kicks in: "My contract will be a mini deal"
At Wiz exit day, Marcin Gortat says he had some personal issues that affected him, making this season his toughest. Says it was on him.
Gortat: "Bottomline is I was shi--ing and puking all day yesterday. I had 2 IVs and this morning I ate breakfast and threw up again."
Marcin Gortat said he was so sick last night and earlier today that he wasn't sure if he would be able to play. He tried early on
Ah, so Gortat had flu-like symptoms.
Marcin Gortat was sick and tried to play anyway, Randy Wittman said.
Randy Wittman said Marcin Gortat was sick the last two days and needed multiple IVs to even give it a go at all.
Wittman said Gortat is sick. Was throwing up all night.
Randy Wittman says Marcin Gortat was sick, throwing up all day and needed IVs last night and today
Wittman says Gortat was sick. "Throwing up all day today."
Nene is playing almost as well as Gortat would be.
Still no Pierce, Nene or Gortat. Will they play again?
Marcin Gortat has played 12 minutes tonight.
With 12 mins left in season, Pierce/Nene/Gortat combined to shoot 3-14 for 9 pts so far. Wittman relying on Wall/Beal/Seraphin/Porter so far
Porter and Seraphin over Pierce and Gortat. Who knew?
Remember when I talked about certain guys having a condition that combines a citrus fruit with a body part? The Polish Hammer def guilty
Gortat is out, Seraphin is in. Wittman is desperate
Wittman is going with Seraphin early again for Gortat. With season on the line, Wittman looking to Seraphin for spark
Seraphin coming in. Gortat to bench.
Pierce/Nene/Gortat have combined for 6 points. Beal/Wall have combined for 22.
Hawks outscoring Wizards 12-4 in the third quarter, and they have a 57-43 lead. Nene, Pierce, Gortat shooting a combined 3-for-14.
Nene, Gortat and Pierce will start the quarter. Need a loooooottttttt more from those three vets
Wiz shooting 3-for-16. Randy Wittman looking for a spark. Puts in Kevin Seraphin for Gortat. Seraphin has not been a part of rotation
Wizards might be playing tight. John Wall airballed a runner. Gortat missed a putback. Pierce missed a 3.
I am in California, but I could have sworn I heard the Nation's Capital all scream GORTAT and that mishandled rebound
In summary: NBA says Pierce's three-pointer should've been negated by Gortat's illegal screen.
NBA rules 2 incorrect calls in final 2 minutes a both benefited Wizards -- Pierce traveled w/58.6 secs left and Gortat off foul w/11.5 left.
Two incorrect calls at end of Hawks-Wizards Game 5 - Pierce travel not call, Gortat offensive foul not called.
Nene being in the game there instead of Gortat smells Wittman-y
Why is Nene in and not Gortat?
