Ryan Wolstat

Vasquez averaging 8 assists, just 1.5 turnovers, shooting 44% from three (on odd mix, no corner attempts, 0-2 from straight on).

Will somebody at this press conference ask Al McCoy why he voted PJ Tucker as DPOY? And did Frye finish 1st or 2nd in his MVP vote?

Tony Mejia

Harrison twins must know that if they return to UK, they'll be expected to win a title. The cupboard is that full. Is the pressure worth it?

I'm happy for Goran Dragic winning MIP, but I won't ever forget who said what about him before he was the face of the franchise.
