Monty Williams Would Rather Tongue Kiss a Maggot Than Write This Post

Published: December 10, 2011

Best quote of training camp so far just came out of Hornets camp. In a brief session with the media, Monty Williams laid this gem– “I’d rather tongue kiss a maggot than tweet or blog.”

Other highlights include the knowledge that the team is not limiting Chris Paul at all in practice as a result of the trade rumors, Monty says Quincy Pondexter is in excellent shape and he expects to see improvement this year, Trevor Ariza has been working on his mid-range game and ball handing, and there are a  LOT of guys who I’ve never seen before.

Also, Monty is not making excuses, even with most of the team coming directly from the D-League– “We tend to believe that whoever we have… that no matter who you have if you prepare the right way you have a chance to win”

Love. It.

We’ll have the full video of the media session with Williams and Trevor Ariza up shortly, as well as the first of our training camp spotlights. Just wanted to get this hilarity up here while the videos upload.

    How big are the maggots at Monty’s place?

    You can tell his tongue isn’t my-house-maggot sized, so it’s gotta be the maggots.

    Gotta be.

    i’d rather my head coach tongue kiss creepy crawlies than have him tweet or blog – that stuff has nothing to do with winning.
