DP: If I said you could have traded him for Larry Johnson....
GH: Never. I thoroughly enjoyed playing with Christian.
DP: Shaq was almost dealt, and now he wants to be traded because he was on the block. How do you guys deal with that?
GH: In recent weeks we've seen Shaq dis everybody in the NBA. And I call him the 50 Cent of the NBA—if you say anything bad about him, he will have a mix-tape response the next day. So I'm not going to say anything negative about the big fella. No, I'm just playing....
DP: You guarded LeBron the other night. How was that?
GH: My daughter, who's seven, doesn't appreciate my career before I got hurt. She looks at me like I used to look at my dad when he was at the end of his career. Like, Dad, you're an average player. And one of her favorite players is LeBron. Before the game she said, "Dad, don't let LeBron score 50 on you." That's what I have to live with.
WITH MARCH about to get really Mad, several prominent college basketball figures were guests on the show. Here's what they had to say.
STEPHEN CURRY The Davidson guard (above) was on last week and said of his decision to hold off on the NBA draft for the chance to make another run in the NCAA tournament, "I don't have any regrets." Curry knew when he said it that the 26--7 Wildcats would likely miss the field. They did.
BILL SELF The Kansas coach, on his kids' brackets: "They better pick Kansas, or it's bread and water for the month."
