There were plenty of good quotes coming out of the Wolves locker room last night so I figured it might be nice to put all of the videos I got in one spot, especially for those readers that don’t run around on those wild Twitter streets.
James Johnson continues to be an excellent interview! He praised undrafted rookie Naz Reid for the second straight night.
James Johnson praises Naz Reid again. “If Naz is playing like that every night, I’m good with sitting down, help coaching. I promise you.” Says Wolves all have “win now” mentality. “We need to be more synchronized & more of the body of one. Our offensive power is there,” says JJ. pic.twitter.com/PB6G35Sgyc— John Meyer (@thedailywolf) March 5, 2020
As long as the team doesn’t have any fake gym rats, everything will be fine! Johnson’s answer on communication was enlightening. I also hope to hear more Gunna blasting after wins; losing is terribly boring.
“We keep that same work ethic and have no fake gym rats in here, we’ll be good,” said James Johnson. Then I asked if communication was contagious. His answer was predictably awesome. JJ also discusses “fake gym rats” and how wins will bring more Gunna blasting in the locker room. pic.twitter.com/9URGBdodpS— John Meyer (@thedailywolf) March 5, 2020

D’Angelo wasn’t aware Naz could pass as well as he can. He’s sneaky good at dishing the rock.
“I didn’t know he could pass like that to be honest,” says D’Lo, regarding undrafted rookie Naz Reid. “I told him today he’s passing like Magic.” Russell’s role on the Wolves is “definitely similar” as it was in Brooklyn. He’s thriving too! #DLo pic.twitter.com/hYvQI5Rch3— John Meyer (@thedailywolf) March 5, 2020
Russell also doesn’t believe Malik Beasley gets enough credit. That’s obviously changing right before our eyes.
A backcourt that watches film together is a backcourt that thrives together, right? I believe that’s written in the CBA.
“After every game, we watch film together on the plane,” says Malik Beasley. We as in, he and D’Angelo Russell. + more J.J Redick comps. pic.twitter.com/gndN5hkny9— John Meyer (@thedailywolf) March 5, 2020
Do these remaining games even matter? YES.
Beasley discuss his defensive pairing with D’Angelo, the value of these remaining games + more. pic.twitter.com/wiLX3ibLUw— John Meyer (@thedailywolf) March 5, 2020
“We’re a great team, man. It’s scary how great we are. People don’t see it yet,” says Malik Beasley.

“We’re a great team, man. It’s scary how great we are. People don’t see it yet,” says Beasley, who doesn’t care about being underrated or overrated, though I must say he’s so so so good and it’s incredible to me that Denver traded this immensely talented 2 pic.twitter.com/8zdawQxEvf
Overrated, underrated? Beasley really doesn’t care.
