Wizards-Sixers Post Game Locker Room Portraits & Quotes

Updated: December 23, 2009

Matching up Wizards locker room quotes after the Sixers game with corresponding facial expressions.

Nick Young

When asked what the team needs to do to build on this one victory:

“We need to just not get too down on each other, not criticize each other. Everybody needs to be one as a team. When one player messes up, pat him on the back and tell them ‘do a good job next time’ instead of talking trash.”

Gilbert Arenas

When asked if it was a relief to hit two clutch free throws that put the Wizards up 101-97 with 1:10 left:

“Yea, I mean ever since I got on the West, I’ve been shooting about 80-something-percent. So, that just felt good. I had to change up the routine a little bit and from there I’ve just been hitting shots.”

What’s the new routine?

“Uhh … {pause to think} … spin it three times, dribble three times, and shoot it (laughs).”

Dominic McGuire

When asked if he had any idea that Flip Saunders was going to make a wholesale substitution:

“Naw, not really. I was sitting over there just waiting. I actually didn’t think I was going to play this game because usually when I don’t play the first half, I usually sit. But, I was ready though … just waiting.”

Randy Foye

When asked about what he thought when he saw five Wizards ready to check in all at once:

“Your mindset is, you know,  ‘we’re not bringing it’ … obviously coach thinks we’re not bringing it. So, he’s going to get a new group of five in there that’s going to bring energy. Usually when you see that, when you’re sitting down on the bench, it usually starts you up and then when you go back in, you’re always ready.”

Caron Butler

When asked what he was thinking when Flip took the starters out:

“This is not personal. When things happen like that, and you make adjustments and win the game, it’s not personal. Everybody’s trying to get the same goal, they’re trying to win games. If a coach does that, it’s discipline, you accept it, take a smack on the wrist, and you get prepared to get back out there and show what you’re capable of doing.”

Antawn Jamison

When asked about what happened in the third quarter when the starters were taken out and he proceeded to hit the baseline ad banner machine:

“I have no comment on that.”
