“It seems like my whole life I’ve been this little Canadian kid dreaming somebody would give me a chance.”

“You can’t worry about things you have no control over.”

“I love basketball and I’m committed to it, but if I have to lock up my spirit because of basketball, it ain’t worth it.”

“I know what I can do and what I’m able to accomplish.”

“It’s about not looking for outcomes, but just enjoying the process. That’s when you become in the moment.”

“I have a tendency, especially when I’m playing with great players, to try and get them the ball.”

“I love being part of a team, any team. Not just playing, but the camaraderie, the whole thing. It’s just what I get off on.”

“Once I figured out I could play in the NBA, I also figured I could be an All-Star.”

“You have good games, you have bad games. You have good years, you have bad years. I have always been kind of philosophical about that.”

“I have as much fun as anybody I know.”

“Sometimes it’s difficult maintaining my friendships, but to me, it’s well worth it.”

“For the most part I try to just stay focused not on my play but on our team.”

“My goal is to eliminate positions where I can’t function.”

“My approach has been that a player with determination and a willingness to work harder than anyone else can accomplish anything. It’s a simple formula. I’ve found it works.”

“I feel very comfortable going at full speed.”

“I was never supposed to play in college, let alone the NBA, so I always feel like I have something to prove. No one ever expected me to be here, so that feeling of being an underdog is ingrained in me. It’s a natural part of my consciousness.”

“Let's face it, I weigh 175 pounds. Nobody could have predicted this with a guy like me.”
