re: Hamed Haddadi had a workout w/ Pelicans (Posted on 8/28/13 at 2:45 pm to MrBlue105)
quote: Hamed Haddadi —In retrospect, probably the biggest cultural casualty of the Rudy Gay trade. The NBA's first Iranian player, Haddadi became an unlikely cult hero in Memphis one night against Cleveland, where he laid out Lebron James with a pick, dunked on Shaq, gave the greatest locker-room quote in team history ("I drop-step. I go around Shaq. I dunk that shite."), and then walked into a downtown bar to a standing ovation. Victories were always a little sweeter with Haddadi celebrating on the sideline. Put it to a referendum, and Griz fans would probably award Haddadi with a playoff share.
