I was edgy my first two games just to get out there and start my career. You saw me settle down more than I did the first two games.
We have seven games on the road coming up. If we can win at least five of those games on this trip, it will define us as a team.
Last year I showed people a little of what I can do. I didn't give them the whole shebang.
We let three slip away. That's over. That's behind us. We know this is a new year. New goals. New attitudes.
That was real good. That was probably the best thing that happened (Saturday). Seeing the kid.
It's a great honor. It's a team thing. The team should have gotten Player of the Month.
I just hope my involvement brings a wider fan-base and more interest to an already exciting and fun sport.
It is getting old. I hope we have everybody out there as soon as possible. Playing with a 6-4 lineup is tough.
He's been a big influence. He's got a lot of knowledge.
He's looking good - better than what I thought he (would) coming back from a broken hand. He's looking real good.
Me playing only 6 minutes in the first half really hurt us. Anybody gets frustrated over fouls. It's a matter of how you bounce back. I tried to come back in the second half and bounce back. . . . By that time it was a little too late.
Regardless of who it was, I was going to the hole. They weren't going to stop me that time. I was either going to get a foul or a dunk.
Every time we play San Antonio, it's always going to be tough. They send two or three people at me. . . . I knew my shot wasn't going down from the outside. I just tried to keep going to the hole and get some fouls.
Our team needed me out there to get some things done on the offensive end and the defensive end. At halftime, I just told (the team) it's time for me to wake up.
My team needed me out there to get some things done. At halftime I just told them it's time for me to wake up and just go out there and win the game.
I knew that we were down by 14 points and my team needed me out there. Halftime, I told them that it was time for me to wake up and go out there and win the game.
I think I brought it on myself. I guaranteed a gold medal (before the Olympics). I'm not doing that this time.
It seems like we always pull a trick out of our bag when we play a top team in the NBA. If we could do that against the lower teams, then we would be in pretty good shape.
If we win playing ugly ball, we'll take it.
I hope so. I'm just going to wait and see. I feel comfortable. . . . But there are lot of forwards in the West doing really good.
I can't worry that we didn't get him. It was rumors all along.
I want to win the game. I don't worry about taking over the game unless I have to.
I believe that you should put the right people around you, people that will not let anything go wrong.
I don't think anybody knew or thought we would be where we're at in three years.
I don't think anybody thought we'd be where we are now, after three years. This is one of the stages we've been trying to get to. Now that we're here, we want to move forward and win a playoff series.
