04:49 PM ET 06.05 | After playing double-digit minutes in the first four games of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat forward Shane Battier's minutes dwindled before he was completely benched for a Game 7 victory. To be fair, Battier didn't fit well against the Pacers' big lineup. Still, his perspective is unique. Most NBA players will admit some level of unhappiness about being benched, but Battier took that approach to the extreme but with a nice little metaphor that somehow made it all the more positive. "Sometimes you've got to eat a turd sandwich," Battier told the AP. "Makes the ribeye taste better next time."

He's obviously a better player than food critic...

If I ever have to justify the quality of a ribeye in this manner, that's the end of meat for me.

That's great, Shane. That's great - you eat poop. Keep on eating that and flashing your poop-eating grin. Go ahead.
