Travis Ford gushes some more about Marcus Smart

I’ve seen all of them and I think this might be my favorite quote ever about Marcus Smart.



My man Gary Parrish at CBS wrote a great little post about a conversation he had recently with Travis Ford about Marcus Smart. I’ll spare you my commentary and just leave you with this jewel of a quote from Ford:

“I’ve never been around another player in my whole life — not when I was a player and not since I’ve been a coach — that is able to bring it EVERY SINGLE DAY,” Ford said. “I don’t care if it’s two-a-days, three-a-days or five-a-days. I don’t care if it’s 6 a.m. I don’t care if it’s the day after a big win. It’s ridiculous. I knew he was a great leader, but it’s even been a shock to me. Everybody, at some point, has a bad day in terms of coming ready to play. But he never takes a day off. He comes everyday to win every drill. Everyday. Every drill. I don’t care when it is or what it is. Everyday he’s ready. It’s ridiculous.”

Also, go read the entire post, it’s fantastic.
