”I don’t know where I’d be without basketball. I don’t want to think about it.’’

“I’ve always tried to emulate Jason Kidd. He plays hard, pushes the ball up court and makes good decisions. He can control a game with his ballhandling.’’

”I might be loud and wild around my friends in a hotel room, but in the hotel around people I don’t know, I am not going to be like that.”

“I don’t think people really know who I am and that’s partly because I don’t let them know.’’

”I get people asking all the time why I don’t play like that anymore, with all that fancy stuff. And in a way, I miss it a little, but those days were about having fun and entertaining. Today, it’s about winning a championship.’’

”I feel like if I need to say something, then I am going to say it. I learned from Hubie Brown, don’t hold anything in because you get ulcers. I don’t need ulcers.’’
