"I'm not playing for the All-Star Game, I'm playing to win games."
"I wanted to become one of the best guards in the NBA. In order to accomplish that, I had to increase the intensity of my workouts."

"On this team right now, I think my leadership is required."
"Desmond Mason is one of my best friends in the world. And he's a great, great talent."
"I know that good things will happen for me if I keep working hard."
"I'm just try to have fun."
"I feel I can score on anyone inside. I know that I have the advantage on my defender. I know what I'm going to do, but he doesn't."
"I do everything opposite from what the defender—after facing so many right-handed players—naturally expects. Does that help me get open? You bet it does!"
"Even though I work on going both ways, I still want to go left."
"People are underestimating us—and I don't think that's wise."
"It wasn't a mistake to come out of college early. It was the best move I ever made. I had one year to practice and learn the NBA game. It was like a redshirt year."
"You've got to play hard every game."
"I haven't seen a nice open shot in four years."
"I always had it in me to be a good shooter."
"It's an honor to go from a guy who didn't play in his rookie year to being a marked man."
