In the world of sports, and especially the NBA, short snippets of players during media access before and after games make some of the biggest headlines the next day.
All you need to do is look at examples such as Kyrie Irving's 'Flat Earth' comments during the All-Star break last season -- which is still making headlines to this day -- to see just how important player quotes are to both the media and a team's fanbase in general.
