More tortilla talk at C's camp
"Kevin had a phenomenal practice [Wednesday], so that was good to see," Rivers said. "He had his rhythm. He must have had a great pep talk after he made that tortilla that he had yesterday. That was one hell of a tortilla, by the way. I’ve never eaten a tortilla with all that stuff in it. I’ve clearly missed out. I told him, I didn’t know you fried it and microwaved it. I didn’t know you do both of those things to tortillas."
When a reporter jokingly told Rivers that he clearly doesn't know anything about cooking, Rivers nodded in agreement.
"Clearly. That’s what [Garnett] told me too," he said. "He said, 'You just don’t know enough about it.' I said, 'OK.'"
Garnett was trying to explain the difficulties with the rushed nature of training camp in order to start a 66-game season on Christmas Day after a five-month lockout.
"Timing is everything," he said. "Chemistry is something that you don't just throw in the frying pan and mix it up with another something, then throw it on top of something, then fry it up and put it in a tortilla and put in a microwave, heat it up and give it to you and expect it to taste good. You know? For those of you who can cook, y'all know what I'm talking about. If y'all can't cook, this doesn't concern you."
