Sergey Kasarov may have a butter smooth jumper, but the Russian's handle on the English language isn't quite as polished. So when Shane Battier asked the 19th overall pick what his father, a former point guard for the Russian national team, meant to him, the newest Cleveland Cavalier gave this semblance of a response:
"I think, he watch this, he watch draft, like, a lot of emotion have. So. To see like me shake David Stern hand, so that's crazy. I can feel it now that I NBA now but I think, couple months, I'm gonna feel it."
Clearly having no idea what in the world Kasarov had just said to him, Battier hit back with a classic and eloquent, "Well…that's great." Language barriers don't stop Shane Battier. You can only hope to contain him.
