Not really, but you know this conversation is happening as we speak:
Popovich: Pete, we need more veteran leadership what with the new guys we're going to start playing.
Holt: But you had me resign Mike, Kurt, and Jacque. You assured me they were worth the $12 million I've committed for 2 more years. Savvy veterans who know how to play the right way, you gushed. I tried telling you Pop that, unlike wine, athletes do not get better with age. I suggested we get some young guys on the cheap and save the cap space for 2009 free agency.
Popovich: (a moment of silence while stroking his Gandalf beard) Have you seen these "young guys" play?
Holt: You mean guys who have a ton of energy, run the floor, go after rebounds, make quick defensive rotations?
Popovich: Disheartening, isn't it? That kind of reckless abandon has no place in a man's game.
Holt: So who are you looking at?
Popovich: Antonio McDyess
Holt: Hasn't he had like 3 knee surgeries?
Popovich: Exactly! Surgically repaired means they're reinforced.
Holt: (scratching head) What can he do?
Popovich: He brings toughness.
Holt: Like Kurt Thomas?
Popovich: He can hit the 12 footer facing the basket.
Holt: LIke Kurt Thomas?
Popovich: He can grab interior defensive rebounds.
Holt: You mean like...
Popovich: WHAT DO YOU KNOW? YOU SELL CONSTRUCTION EQUIPMENT!!
Holt: (awkward silence) Pop, love the beard.
