Quin Snyder Rumors
When asked after Wednesday night’s game between the Jazz and Lakers, what he recalled about that particular exit interview, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said that he didn’t remember that conversation. “Honestly, I don’t remember the conversation,” Snyder said. “I can’t fathom Dennis saying something like that.”
The Jazz players were informed about the tweet following Wednesday’s game. Rudy Gobert said he was pretty close with Millsap when they were Jazz teammates but that Wednesday was the first he had heard about the incident. “There was never any conversations about that (back then),” Gobert said. “I’m just going to reach out to him and find out. Until we have more information it’s hard to tell, it was six years ago. That’s why this kind of stuff is tough to understand. Hopefully we get more information.”
Elijah Millsap: Almost 6yrs ago. On April 16, 2015, D. Lindsey made bigot remarks in my exit interview while conversing with Q. Snyder “if u say one more word, I’ll cut your Black ass and send you back to Louisiana”.
Tim MacMahon: Mike Conley, who has the unofficial label as the league’s best veteran who has never been an All-Star, believes that he’s earned his spot this season. His answer when @andyblarsen asked Conley about his All-Star chances: “That would mean the world to me obviously. It would say a lot about me as a person after the year I had last year to come back and compete at the level that I’ve competed at. I do feel like I’ve played well enough to be in that conversation and to quite frankly be one of those reserves. I think this year everything has fallen into place where we [have] the best record and we’ve got a coach coaching the team. It’s all falling in line, so if it’s not going to happen this year, that would be tough.”
Mirjam Swanson: Quin Snyder facing a fully-staffed Clippers: “Those are pretty good players (laughs) especially those first two. I think there’s no mystery from our guys, the level of respect for their team, the way they’re coached, the way they play — we’ll have to play well to win.”
