Default Blair's reactions after getting drafted late

Here are a bunch of things Blair has said to the San Antonio media.

“I'm going to rebound,” Blair said. “I go get the ball. I don't let it come to me. If I've got to knock you out of the way to go get it, that's what I'll go do.”

“I've got a poster of the whole draft,” Blair said. “I'm going to check off every team that passed on me.”

"I’m shooting 300, 400, 500 jumpers a night, that’s just my night. Fatigue isn’t an option in my category."

"All the teams that didn't pick me, I'm with the Spurs now," Blair said. "I'm going to make them regret it."

"It upset me, but at the same time, I knew I was going to get drafted,"

"Since they believed in me, I'm just going to give them 1,000 percent," Blair said. "I'm going to do whatever they want me to do."

These are just some words I picked up from his interviews.

Good for him. He's definitely gonna be the steal of the draft.

Simple shit-techtonics. He's going to unleash a shit-quake the likes of which this league has never seen before.

Dayum. He is going to be a beast if whatever he says comes true. I wish the Raps coulda bought a late pick to draft him. He is going to be a monster

I'd say Sam Young will be. But if this guy stays healthy, he certainly could be.

I'd say BJ Mullens will be good as well. The kid has a lot of upside.

Kid sounds determined. Sounds like he'd rip through Fedor to get a rebound.

I wish we could've gotten both. DeRozan to address our shooting guard issue (won't be immediate), and Blair for rebounding.

I like this guy.

Honestly if you get drafted high you have this ego (See Brandon Jenning and Rubio), but if your drafted lower you have more of a drive to prove yourself.

Man I wish we had this kid.

A second pick would have been nice.
