Nenad Krstic on Brawl: ‘I Always Have My Teammates’ Backs’

Krstic knows he was in the wrong, but he tells HoopsHype that he had reason to go bonkers: “Do you think your punishment after the Greece-Serbia brawl was fair? ‘I deserved it. But I didn’t deserve the talk in the newspaper. I’m not one person to get in fights on the court, but I was just trying to protect my teammates.’ Like you said, you don’t look like a guy that’s going to get involved in fights. What happened to you there? ‘Nothing. I think everybody who knows me knows that I’m going to have their their back if there is a fight or a problem or anything like that. I always have my teammates’ backs. So there was a fight, I saw my teammate lying down on the court and I tried to help. And they attacked me and whoever attacks me, I’m going to attack him.’”

    First, looks like his balls finally dropped. As long as he doesn’t go all pacer in the NBA he should be fine.

  • WolfNast

    I’m a Thunder fan and everything but he hit a big dude in the back of the head and right when that guy got annoyed he turned around and Krstic ran away. And then he picked up a chair and threw it at a guy holding him back. WTF? That means his balls have still not dropped. lol

    Agreed. “Whoever attacks me, I’m going to attack them”. Inaccurate. He attacked the guy when he was down, then when the attacked was charging at Krstic to try to kick his ass, Krstic could not back away fast enough. Then Krstic threw a chair that hit the guy right next to him, but nobody else. Horrible.

    It was a mis quote. Should’ve read “I always hit other people’s teammates in the back”

    Attackers move forward, No-nads.

  • Krstic

    Screw you guy, Sofoklis was on top of Bjelica who is half his weight, punching him in the back, while he’s on the ground. That’s when Krstic pulled on him and punched him from the back (see it at 30 sec mark of this clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82D7i_YRiME)
    So it’s not like he’s just looking for guys to punch in the back of the head, he actually WAS defending his teammate.

    @dirty frank – you beat me to that one. I was giggling at my own cleverness until I saw your post. I now giggle at your cleverness.

    Krstic needs 2 shut the hell up. He threw a f****n chair and then did a carmelo by backpeddling. And now he’s talking tuff? Get the hell out of here w/that s**t!

  • total scrotal implosion

    I wonder how many of u tough guys would like to go straight up against sofoklis? Exactly

  • JTaylor21

    Sure, he has his teammates back just like Avon had Stringer Bell’s back huh.

  • http://slamonline.com The Black Rick Kamla

    …if this had been any other NBA player he would’ve been banned for half of next season….just being all the way real

  • total scrotal implosion

    Jtaylor, stringer fd up when he sent omar after muzone, telln him he was responsible for brandon.

  • JTaylor21

    @TSI you’re right but Avon also Fd up by setting up the guy who had being with him from day one, he thought he could do it on his own but boy was he wrong. SBell was BRAINS behind the op.

    First off this started as a Olympiacos vs Panathinikos fight, notice how Teodosic of Serbia holds Sofo his teammate to get into fight, and then some guys misunderstood it for Serbia-Greece boxing match. Krstic running from Sofo is totally normal as the man is a train. He is officially listed 375lbs, and has been for a long though he appears heavier each year, but i remember when they played in champions league this year someone said he was closer to 415lbs, and one reporter suspected he was even 485 which is 220 kilos…I dare you stay put when that freighter approaches

    “…. i also got my teammate’s butts, hence the chair, for them to sit on”, Krstic forgot to add.
