One of the stats that you can expect ESPN to shove down our throats tonight during Game 3 of the Mavs/Hornets series, is the fact that New Orleans is 0 for the decade in Dallas. If Chris Paul and his teammates needed any more motivation to break that ugly streak, Jerry Stackhouse has certainly done his part in providing it.
Stack put Hornets head coach Byron Scott on blast, saying that Lord Byron is a sucker and that he’s thought about beating the tar out of him.
“I don’t think Byron Scott is the best coach or I don’t think he’s the best guy to deal with — you know what I’m sayin? — from some things that I’ve heard from other players and just some dealings that I had with him earlier in the season. I was about ready to kick his ass — you know what I’m sayin?
He was sitting on the sideline and we just got into a little conversation or something and he was going to tell me, you know, ‘Talk to me when you get a ring.’ I was like, I told that fool, ‘If I played with Magic and Worthy and Kareem I’d have a ring, too’. So, you know, he’s a sucker in my book, but that’s a whole other story.”
Know what I’m sayin’?
Thank you, Jerry Stackhouse, for you have just personally transformed this series from a bit of a snoozefest into something a little more compelling.
