Discussion Starter #1
Kings Coach Rick Adelman
“We shot today, the starters didn’t do much, they played a lot of minutes yesterday, so we just kind of had them go through shooting drills. (Peja) did all that, so we’ll see tomorrow when he comes out what his status is.”

On Peja's sore hand:
“It’s just sore and stiff. So catching the ball and handling the ball and doing all those things are tough. It’s just going to come down to when he feels good and the trainer and the doctor say it’s time to go.”

On a story that appeared in the 11/24 Sacramento Bee reporting a confrontation between Bonzi Wells and Peja Stojakovic:
“It’s just ridiculous. If people want to try to manufacture stuff…I mean, Elston Turner is in the locker room before the game, I’m in the locker room before the game and there was nothing like that happening. If people want to try and make something up to stir up controversy, I just think that’s wrong. You have to have something there first. We’re trying to come together as a team. I know I was in the locker room, and I saw those guys before and after the game and there was nothing to it. I don’t know, if someone wants to make something up, then so be it. It’s just someone trying to create some kind of story.”

“You can take it any way you want to take. All I’m saying that as a coach I trust each guy. If they are hurt, then they’re hurt. I’m not going to question a guy, and I don’t think anybody should, and I don’t see why there should be some kind of controversy when one guy is sitting out with a sore hand and another is not. If you like to create that controversy than fine, but I’m more worried about wins and losses. ”

On the Sacramento Bee story:
“That cat right there, the beat writer, wrote a bad article, and I confronted him about it. I brought him in, and me, Peja, and Brad got in his face and let him know that there was nothing like that, and that he was just starting drama. I just don’t appreciate it—it’s the second time it’s happened since I’ve been here. I just get tired of it because it seems like they just want to start controversies around me because of maybe my past. I just thought it would be different here.”

“I’m just talking about me, and I can’t talk about anyone else. I was just talking about me. I know that other players play through stuff too, but when you want to go run with stuff, that’s when it becomes bad press for us.”

On his quote after Wednesday's game regarding Peja's injury:
“What’s wrong with that? I’ve only known Peja for two months. I didn’t lie, I haven’t been here for six, seven years like Mike and those guys. I’m not a doctor—I don’t know what’s wrong with his hand, I can only speak about me. If you guys are trying to stir something up, stir it up, I don’t care.”

Peja Stojakovic
On his injury status:
“We’ll see how it feels tomorrow and I’ll decide before the game. We’re going to try a couple of things, maybe a glove to protect the hand, but other wise I’ve just been resting it and treating it for a couple of games and it feels better.”

On the Sacramento Bee story:
“That’s some thing that I just had a discussion with the beat writer about, and it’s something that doesn’t have any sense. I was very surprised, we were both surprised—we have something nice going on with the team and it was a little bit…not a little bit, very disrespectful to us. I mean we all have a relationship with the media and if there is something to ask it’s better to come to us and ask about that –not going around and hoping you might get false information. I mean, I was surprised and disappointed.”
