“We really kept the game simple. When a guy had an open shot, he took it. When he didn’t, he passed. It’s very difficult to guard when the ball moves as quickly as it did.”

On Ray Allen:

“He’s a pro and he takes care of himself. He’s in just phenomenal shape, and he can run forever. What impressed me the most when we were in Boston was his professionalism and his ability to make big shots. Ray could go 0-for-20 or 20-for-20, and the next day he’d be the first guy in the gym, shooting all of his shots from his exact spots at the exact speed.”

Do you want to stand out, or do you want to win? For young guys, that’s hard to understand that if you win, you do stand out. Or, you can stand out alone and you’ll get a lot of accolades, but you won’t win and that’s an individual thing. For us, and I don’t know our guys yet, but for the young ones – that’s DeAndre (Jordan), Blake (Griffin), and Chris (Paul) – that’ll be the key is sacrificing even some of their games for the good of the win.”
