On @Zach Lowe’s podcast, Jeff Van Gundy said he considered Gortat, Nene, and Seraphin on his East all-star team. Went with Valanciunas.

Ethan J. Skolnick

(2/2) Marcin Gortat had the most fan votes of any player not chosen in either conference. Hawks effect.

Michael Lee

Why is Shaq calling Marcin Gortat, "Marty?"

Sean Highkin

Shaq pronouncing "Marcin Gortat" is an adventure.

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat is a fan favorite here in DC, but the #Wizards center means so much more to Poland: wpo.st/_KO20

Suns lead 29-17 after 1Q. Gortat = 8p, 3r. Humphries = 4p, 6r. Dragic, Markieff Morris = 8p each. Wizards have 4 turnovers & just 2 assists

Amin Elhassan

TJ Warren RT @beanreturns: @Amin Elhassan who did Suns pick w/ that pick from wizards for gortat?

Paul Coro

Gortat is going at Len like it's 2013 Suns training camp and Len is the rookie with the bad ankles. Gortat has 6. WAS 13-12. #SunsVsWizards

Amin Elhassan

Gortat trying to show out against the Suns lol...waved off his teammates and spun baseline for the emphatic two hand Diesel jam

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat asked for a clearout then spun off Len for a 2-handed dunk. He’s got 6 pts. Wizards up 13-12 with 5:31 left.

Paul Coro

Fan to Gortat during #SunsVsWizards warm-up: "You're better than when you played here!" Gortat: "Because we didn't win &%$# when I was here"

Jorge Castillo

Nene is not playing tonight. He’s inactive. #Wizards starting 5: Wall, Beal, Pierce, Humphries, Gortat.

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat just put Robert Sacre on a plakat.

Gary Lee

Robert Sacre faces up on Marcin Gortat and makes the basket.

Jorge Castillo

John Wall is playing tonight. #Wizards starters: Wall, Beal, Porter, Nene, Gortat. #Lakers starters: Clarkson, Ellington, Kelly, Hill, Sacre

Demian Belmonte

Polish Hammer is on the court! Marcin Gortat preparándose para dominar la pintura del Staples #LakersWizards http://t.co/CkDBqgl4hJ

Eric Smith

How big is Gortat to what WAS does? Pretty darn important, I'd say. Now stack his numbers versus Valanciunas in TOR. You may be surprised

Kurt Helin

John Wall makes sick between-the-legs pass to Marcin Gortat (video) dlvr.it/8FYQ8f

Michael Scotto

ASSIST OF THE NIGHT: Washington Wizards PG John Wall bounced a pass to Marcin Gortat between his legs for a layup. vine.co/v/OTeuFnMUllX

Jorge Castillo

And if you’re wondering why Humphries over Gortat, he just banked in another bucket. He’s got 19 and 13 off the bench.

Jorge Castillo

Humphries = 11p, 6r. Wall = 9p, 7a. Gortat = 5p, 10r. Pierce and Beal = 9p each. #Wizards shooting 53.3% w/ 6 turnovers. Up in rebs 24-20.

Jorge Castillo

Wittman makes adjustment with rotation: Every starter but Gortat back in after 8:31 timeout. Earlier than usual.

Jason Kosmicki

Oh-Ficial starting lineups....Chandler/ Faried/ Nurkic/ Afflalo/ Lawson......Pierce/ Nene/ Gortat/ Beal/ Wall

Jorge Castillo

Gortat: “Right now it’s up to the coaches, but if I end up losing it then I think it’s going to be more about politics.” #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

Marcin Gortat on finishing in 4th among frontcourt players in all-star balloting” “Of course I was surprised.” #Wizards

Jorge Castillo

Nene and Marcin Gortat have each taken a three-pointer this quarter. Neither went in.

Erik Gundersen

They don't call him The Polish Hammer for nothing. Emphatic block on that Barton drive. Wiz up 66-61 5:20 3rd Q.

Mike Richman

Kaman is offering Will Barton some advice after Barton gets his shot swatted hard by Gortat. Probably: "Don't do that, son."

Mike Tokito

How does a guy with Gortat's hairline grow that thick a Mohawk?

Jorge Castillo

Gortat on Aldridge: “It doesn’t change shit. We got to be ready to play. He’s just 1 player. He’s really good but we’re going to go at him.”

Erik Gundersen

It was already going to be tough but without Kaman it's going be a lot harder for Portland to match-up vs. Gortat-Nene-Humphries.

Did Marcin Gortat tell Kevin Durant he had more all-star votes before this happened? vine.co/v/OInxVjBqraq

Adi Joseph

Far more absurd than Marcin Gortat getting more votes than Kevin Durant: Jeremy Lin got 2.5 times more votes than Jeff Teague.

Antonio Gil

Amen RT @Jorge Sierra: Marcin Gortat received more votes than Kevin Durant. I don't know what to say.

Jorge Sierra

Marcin Gortat received more votes than Kevin Durant. I don't know what to say.

Marcin Gortat finished 4th in East frontcourt voting.

Royce Young

Guys, we should really stop talking about Durant's dunk on Gortat. It's not nice to speak of the deceased like that.
