NBA media days are a combination of fluff and teams essentially trying to spin their own talking points for the season (which is actually its own version of fluff). Little of any import is actually said on these days. The fact we got one legitimate basketball story — Pelicans coach Monty Williams plans to start the season with Tyreke Evans coming off the bench — out of all the media days Monday was pretty much manna from heaven.

But that doesn’t mean we don’t get a few great quotes.

Normally I want to do one quote of the day post, but I couldn’t decide between these two, so you get both. One from Dirk Nowitzki in Dallas, one from Metta World Peace in New York. Enjoy.
