Shane Battier Earns His ‘Ribeye’ In Game 7

Benched in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals, Battier delivered one of the best quotes of the postseason.

“Sometimes you’ve got to eat a turd sandwich,” he said. “Makes the ribeye taste better next time.”

Battier’s Game 7: 18 points on 6-8 shooting from 3.

“Shane ain’t hit a shot since I don’t know when,” Dwyane Wade said. “But tonight, he was unconscious.”

Said Erik Spoelstra: “I mean, how awesome is that? It’s so true. You have to be absolutely pure at heart about it and not get bent out of shape and get caught up in a dilemma. He was smart enough to know that sometimes it’s about matchups, series, things change. But he’s so important to what we do that eventually he would get his chance again. When he did, he made the most of it.”
