Tiki And Tierney Weekly Rewind 5/16-5/20

CHIPPER JONES – 5/16/16
Braves legend

“And I will say this: Barry Bonds, steroids or no steroids, Barry Bonds is the best player that I have ever seen don a baseball uniform. Bar none. There’s not even a close second. This guy was dominant on offense, he was dominant on defense, he could steal bases. He could see one pitch in the game over the plate and hit that sucker 450 feet. It was just the most impressive, most disciplined display of playing the game of baseball that I’ve ever seen.”

RICH MCKAY – 5/16/16
Falcons President and CEO

“But I think the fan base, especially when I see that they’re selling out their season tickets, has not gone away from the Raiders. It’s been the viability of that stadium. It’s a tough place to play. Its gotten very, very old and very challenging, I’m sure, for Mr. Davis and for Mark to deal with it financially and the viability of all those things. But as far as the market goes, you still have a very engaged fan base. When you go play there, it’s an unbelievable experience, and I’d hate to see us not be able to preserve that.”

CAROLYN GOODMAN – 5/16/16
Las Vegas Mayor

“Al and his wife, Carol, would appear all the time and we would kid about just football and the propensity for the bigness of what it means to the community. We were way too small. We were 100,000 or 200,000 people. But when I think back to those days, I think, ‘Oh my gosh, look how ready we are now. Al would have loved it.’ . . . I really just want to see it happen. This community is so ready. They’re so excited about it.”

JASON LA CANFORA – 5/17/16
CBS Sports NFL insider

“He’s had difficulty staying on the football field. When he’s had a chance to play four, six, eight weeks in a row, he’s looked like a player who has the ability to do Odell Beckham-like things and be fairly transcendent and the kind of guy who can raise the play of what’s otherwise a pretty sluggish passing offense. But before you’re productive, (you have) to be available – and availability has undoubtedly been an issue. He’s had issues with the foot before repeatedly. It’s obviously not a good thing.”

BIGTYMER AND H3CZ – 5/18/16
Professional video game players

“Maybe we had injuries that happened that sort of ended those playing careers and we’re very competitive people and we sort of just found Call of Duty, first-person shooters, video games in general to channel that energy and that competitiveness. We’re normal kids for the most part.”

SCOTT O’NEIL – 5/18/16
76ers CEO

“He’s definitely a Duke-type kid. But listen, we could find holes in everybody’s game. Our team won 10 games. So you can literally go down the roster and pick apart just about anybody’s game. I would just say let’s get some talent around these guys and see how that rounds out their game and how it changes the dynamic on the court. So I’m a fan.”

RICK WELTS – 5/18/16
Warriors President and CEO

“In the last game, I think there were a couple of times I would have expected the ball to go up that it resulted in a pass. But we’re playing an incredibly good defensive team. He’s obviously the focus of their attention when we have the ball, so he’s got his work cut out for him. But that’s worked pretty well for him the last couple of years.”

J. PAUL REDDAM – 5/19/16
Nyquist’s owner

“We ran a horse in the Derby in 2007 and we knew the race was over in the paddock. We could see the horse sweating, boiling over, being nervous. Nyquist is just the opposite. No matter what’s going on around him, he’s been cool, calm and collected. How your horse is mentally is almost as important as how they are physically and he’s got that kind of very, very calm demeanor.”

KARL-ANTHONY TOWNS – 5/19/16
Timberwolves center

“We’re very excited to have the opportunity to have a great chance of making the playoffs next year. We have a great coaching staff, we have a great organization behind us, but the fact of the matter that we continue to get better is extremely exciting. Not many teams get to say that, that they continue to get better instead of deteriorating. Everything is looking very much up. We’re proud to be part of it.”

CARL PAVANO – 5/20/16
Former MLB pitcher

“The lefties, they hit a little better off me because I didn’t have as many weapons. I couldn’t use my slider as much. So I would go with Trout, but they’re both monsters. What they’ve done at such a young age, the consistency, just everything – it’s such a lift for Major League Baseball in general to have these kids so successful. (They’re) at the top of their game. It’s pick your poison with either of them, but that would be my process – righty/lefty and what I got for them.”

MORRIS PETERSON – 5/20/16
Former NBA forward

“Different people handle different things differently. Like I said, you do have a good point. You sink with the ship. I don’t think that’s the case with him. He’s always been a team guy. Sometimes people make mistakes and we handle things different. You just got to learn from it and grow from it. I expect for him to come out in Game 3 and just lay it out on the line.”
