Marcin Gortat Has No Love for New York City

Gortat went a little John Rocker when asked about the Big Apple and playing in MSG tonight. From the Orlando Sentinel: “When a reporter asked Marcin Gortat what he thought of playing in New York City, Marcin Gortat began by saying he was sorry. Why was he sorry? For what came afterward. ‘The only thing I remember about New York is — it’s sad — but it’s terribly dirty,’ Gortat said. ‘And it smells bad, too. I’m sorry to say that, and I know New York fans will hate me probably. But it’s an incredibly city, great city, great fans… I love the fans and I love the famous people. I remember my rookie year I was sitting in the second row trying to find as many famous people as possible. But now, the memories I got is it’s just a dirty, dirty place.'”
