Tayshaun Prince's reaction to the news that he was nearly traded to the Lakers in 2007 in a deal that would have sent Kobe Bryant to the Pistons (from Vince Ellis of the Free Press):
" ... Kobe would have looked weird in a Pistons jersey. The man has been in the league 16, 17 years. It would be weird seeing him in another jersey, but I'm pretty sure everybody is saying that about me, too. If that was to happen, who knows? Who knows? I'm not going down that road, because it didn't happen."
I've seen stranger things, but whatever.
