It’s not often that an NBA player compares something to a “turd sandwich” but that’s exactly what Miami Heat forward Shane Battier did during the NBA Finals Media Day earlier today.
During the interview, Shane was asked about not playing in game seven of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers and well, he provided a rather unique response:
“The good news is I was equipped, thanks for my arsenal of Bud Light,” Battier said. “If there was man prepared to handle that, it was me. Obviously as a competitor, it was tough. I’m not going to lie. It was maybe the toughest thing I’ve gone through as a competitor. Super happy for my team and my teammates.
“In retrospect, it’s OK today. Every now and then you’ve got to eat a turd sandwich. You eat a turd sandwich and that ribeye tastes really good next time. That’s life. That’s the way I look at it.”
Personally, I preferred ribeye as well…
