Nazr Mohammed not a fan of "garbage time"

Nazr Mohammed apparently has a case of Darko-itis and would rather not suffer the indignity of "garbage time." From the Detroit News:

"I don't like the garbage minutes, I can tell you that," Mohammed said. "If he calls on me, I will play. But they might as well have Amir (Johnson) out there. He would get more out of those minutes than I would."

Flip Saunders, meanwhile, doesn't approve:

"As I have told players before, if you are willing to pick up your paycheck, then you should be willing to play when you are called upon to play."
