We’re blue collar, we’re straight to the point. There’s no gimmicks, there’s no show. We play hard, we do it for each other. We’re not about attention or notoriety or awards, we just want to go out and win. We understand that if we win everybody gets noticed in the end.
On the strength of his team:
I think the strength of our team is the unselfishness. We have a group of guys are willing to help one another on the defensive end and share the ball offensively. I think that is a really big strength. When you talk about team basketball and winning, I think that is the biggest key.
On the San Antonio Spurs:
Hall of Famers not caught up in themselves but truly happy for a teammate of theirs who was having success.
On Kawhi Leonard:
He seems like a very quiet, unassuming kid, not caught up in all the hype. Just goes out and does his job every single night. That’s no surprise because he’s playing for a coach who preaches that. But it’s great to see. It’s always great to see a young player like that develop and have the success he’s had.”
On Dante Exum:
“I think one of the best things about Dante is his work ethic. He works hard. He’s not content with where he is now because he got drafted high. … He knows he has to get better. He knows that there’s a lot of things that he needs to get better at, and he works hard on those things.”
“Every game is valuable. Every time we step on the floor we should be competing to win and to play well.”
“We have an unselfish group of guys, and all that’s being stressed is to push the ball more, to move the ball and to pass up good shots for great shots.”
