Jack weighs in on Turk and the "Free Agent Summit"

Quote:
The Bosh situation could be foreseen as soon as he opted not to sign a contract extension. Turkoglu, however, said he very much wanted to stay in Toronto after the regular season ended. A few weeks later, he was demanding a trade in an interview on Turkish television.

“Obviously there’s a level of frustration with it,” Jack said. “You want to put some core pieces around you and know that you have those pieces in place and try to build that, and one of those pieces goes awry a little bit. It’s frustrating. It’s tough, especially after just one year.”

Quote:
“The only part that makes it crazy is this free-agent summit they’re talking about,” he said laughing. “That’s the only part that’s driving me up the wall.

“It’s their business. How they go about it is how they choose to, but I just think all of them are great players in their own right and they should just go wherever they feel comfortable. I don’t think they need to meet with each other and get nudged by anyone other than themselves.

“This meeting stuff is weird. I’ve never heard of it before. I would never hear of Magic [Johnson], Larry [Bird] and Kareem [Abdul-Jabbar] meeting up to see what’s going on. I don’t know, it’s just different. They’re trying to make it like [a] monopoly.”

It's kinda comforting to know that not all the players are a bunch of bitches...

See, this is why I like Jack. He's no BS. I may not like him all that much as a basketball player (I think he underachieved last season).

But he's right on both fronts.

now this guys is real keeper. I'm glad we have him on our team, even though he and everyone knows how much this team stunk it. but Caldy is just as loyal isn't he? he didn't even bother looking at what the other teams were offering him and signed right away with the Raps. just how many NBA players are there who would want to come here and play regardless of their paycheques (eg: Turk$h!t) anyway? oh that's right, NOT MANY. but if it's going for the better of this team, business is business. we have to make sacrifices to see which one(s) work in the latter.

Is this a quote from Jarret Jack or Jack Armstrong?

EDIT: Never mind.
