…and not just for that delicious and nutritious Moda Center food!
With his team set to play the Houston Rockets tonight, Portland Trail Blazers forward Dorell Wright spoke with reporters about the similarities between this Portland team and the championship-winning Miami Heat squad he was a part of in 2006:
“There’s a hunger in here. A lot of hungry guys.
When I played on that championship team, there was a lot of older hungry guys. Guys that had been playing for so long and never got that opportunity. We’ve got the pieces in here to be special. And we’ve got guys that are hungry. When you’ve got guys that are hungry and willing to do anything to win and sacrifice their games, it’s a good feeling.”
Hungry, huh? Jenna Maroney would be proud.
