Doc: "It's not who starts, ...or finishes"

New, comment

You've heard the phrase, "it's not who starts, but who finishes." Well Doc turns that a bit on its ear.

"No, it's funny, I was going to say that question has always bugged me. It doesn't bother you, but it's who finishes. It's who plays the most, really. It's not even who starts or who finishes. It's who is involved in the game the most on a daily basis. ... I understand the question, media-wise, because [it's] the starting lineup. But, if I was a player, that would have been something I would have not worried about. Now, if I hadn't played at all, then I would worry."

Sounds like Darko should worry a bit.
