Post Game Winner Quotes from Arenas

Posted by on January 15th, 2007 in Gilbert's Thoughts

On the fans chanting M-V-P while leaving the court:

“MVP? That trophy is given out at the end of the year. This is (37) games into the season so you can’t do too much about it.”

“Right now, Steve Nash is above everybody. You have to really do something dramatic in this league. If Kobe averages 35 with an 81 and he didn’t get it, you have to do something else in this league to overtake what Steve Nash has done.”

On seeing the future:

“I’m going for the gusto. I’m going for that winner. The funny part is I was sitting right here before the game and I told DeShawn (Stevenson): ‘I feel like 37 and the game-winner tonight.’ So when I told him after the game: ‘What did I say?’ He just started laughing and said: ‘Man, you were right.”

On breaking records:

“I’m going to break all the records that’s here,” Arenas said with a laugh of his own. “I’m glad it was an older Michael than a younger Michael because if it was a younger Michael it would have been up there.”

On knowing it was good once it left his hands:

“I felt like I was in a win-win situation, go to OT or make the shot. I was on fire the last three minutes of the game so there was no point of going in and trying to create two points. Once I felt the ball come out of my hands, I knew it was going in. It had great arc and it was lined up with the rim, so I started celebrating pre-make. I put my hands up because I knew the game was over.”
