NBA quotes: Charles Barkley calls out Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan

The dollar menu
TNT analyst Charles Barkley, speaking with late-night talk show host Conan OBrien about some of his chintzy millionaire friends: Theres nobody cheaper than Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan. Oh, yeah, [Jordan is] cheap. I always give homeless people money and he will always slap my hand [and say], If they can ask you for spare change, they can say, Welcome to McDonalds, can I help you, please?
A costly alternative
Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert, on his teams efforts to end its recent slide: Weve had plenty of players-only meetings. Weve had plenty of sit-downs with the team and coaches, some with upper management listening in. Maybe we should all go to group therapy and have an airing of grievances.
Losings contagious too
Detroit Pistons forward Josh Smith, on his teammates mind-set: Theres a lot of young guys that dont understand the importance of understanding your opponent; its still fun for them. What we have to understand is, its cool to have fun but look at the severity of the situation. Playing in the postseason is addictive. Being there six times, all you look forward to is that feeling, a feeling like no other.
Somebody gets it
Denver Nuggets Coach Brian Shaw, on forward Quincy Millers struggles defending Memphis Tayshaun Prince: The first time Tayshaun Prince got the ball, he caught it on the wing and drove it left to the middle and one of the fans in the stands yelled down, Cmon, Quincy, everybody knows Tayshaun Prince is left-handed and likes to go left. Our whole coaching staff on the bench clapped because the fan was able to figure that out.
