Gortat: 'I'm Not Going to Let Anybody Take My Job'

FLAGSTAFF -- Suns center Marcin Gortat already has looked ahead at the February trade deadline and July free agency and surmised his departure from Phoenix. The 29-year-old center has looked behind him and seen a 20-year-old first-round pick and 25- and 26-year-old summer acquisitions and thought about how he was once like them when he backed up Dwight Howard in Orlando three years ago. “Now, I've got three young stars coming to the practice to try to beat me up,” Gortat said. “We're all fighting for bread. We're all fighting for milk. I'm not going to let anybody take my job. I'm going to come here and fight these guys just like I fight everybody else. I never backed down from Dwight. Trust me, I'm not going to back down from none of these three guys.”
