But apparently the incident was even better than that!
McCollum on The Flagrant Two podcast, as transcribed by Colin Ward-Henninger of CBSSports.com:
“I just felt like he disrespected me by putting his hands on me,” McCollum said. “Obviously, I’m not trying to get any fines or anything of that nature and I told him he was sweet. He’s French, and I said that, ‘you’re sweet and soft like those crepes you eat.’ “
Did McCollum actually say that in the moment, or did he come up with the line after the fact? I want the former to be true, so I choose to believe it.
