Most overused basketball sayings

how many times have you read on the forum...

"A champion team will beat a team of champions"

unorginal thoughts from armchair (computer chair) coaches that know more about the game than everyone and not afraid to anonymously tell you so!!

What other quotes do you think are overused in the basketball community?

(Yes I see the irony on posting as anonymous)

There is the classic Bob Knight quote that a lot of coaches of junior teams use.

" get out there and play some f*cking defence you stupid piece of sh1t. I can't f*cking believe i even put you on this team, god help me."

(#100704) haha nice.

"If you can't score 20 points a game or grab 10 boards what position is there on the team for you?" - TI Camp/SA State coaches.

Good to see SA metro promoting 'Teamwork' and assists.

I guess it comes back to the original post: "A champion team will beat a team of champions"

"..gets the bucket"

"the easy 2 "

" .. is hacked and will go to the line"

Carfino : "Sammy Mac.. getting it done" (i think Sammy is Steve's love child)


" Goorjian is pacing the sideline while his team struggles to get in the flow"

"that (3pointer) is like a lay-up for Brett Maher"

The two worst comments by NBL commentators:

"He climbs upstairs for the dunk"

and

"He overcooked the shot"

What about the Fox Commentators when referring to the score as "the equation"! It is not an equation, it is merely the bloody score!

One that the NZ boys used a lot last year was "The ball trickles out of court", when it is knocked out of bounds, although I haven't heard them use it so far this year.

Start of the seasons when teams are doing bad, coaches are just like "yeh we are just getting a feel for the team" or something along the lines of that.

or whenever a player is interviewed they start the sentence with "yeah, nah..." Althought that is more predominant in footy circles.

a famous coach once said " your doing some good things and your doing some bad things, let's cut out the bad things and we will win. hands in boys"
he wasn't very famous and he wasn't very successful. the end

Does Case still use the 'non-preferred left hand' line? Used to be his trademark a few years back.
