Pax interview on WSCR -11/29

[From the diaries. A pretty good interview (Pax rarely has bad ones), although it's always unfortunate when Mike North was involved. For a guy who has a huge undeserved contract himself, he's really up in arms about players' salaries. -Matt]

Pax talked with Mike North on the Score this morning:

Here's a short summary of Pax's comments:

On trades

  • Says that Lakers were never really interested in trading Kobe. Said that the Lakers ultimately had control of everything despite talk of Kobe asserting his muscle on things.
  • Agrees that having a superstar is important but the deals are hard to make.
  • Bulls were in the mix for Garnett and he thought they had a chance but it didn't work out. Alludes to problem of giving up too much for 1 guy.
  • Dismisses talk of him being too in love with the team. Is not afraid to pull the trigger if he needs to.
On Skiles
  • He talked to Skiles personally about his harsh comments about TT and said he was right to apologize.
  • Hinted that his relationship with Skiles has been tested as the loosing has continued, but no indication that he could be fired anytime soon.
On players
  • Guys have to step up and play at a consistent level every game
  • North called Pax out about Hinrich and Wallace's poor play.
  • Wallace's standard has to be double digit rebounds every game.
  • Has no answer about Hinrich
  • says TT needs to play with the effort he had in 2nd half against ATL every night.
