On LeBron James:

He’s always understood that once you step on the court, it’s about five guys working together as one.”

“I failed but I was never defeated. To be able to come back from failure, it defines who you are as a man.”

On the Heat having eight days off before game 1 vs the Brooklyn Nets:

“We got a lot of work in. We had eight days off of not playing a basketball game but Spo got us in the gym. (We) got each other in the gym. We made each other accountable throughout the layoff and it proved tonight.”

“It’s too many excuses. Everything is an excuse. We do something wrong, it’s an excuse. We don’t get a stop, it’s an excuse. We turn the ball over, it’s an excuse. What we’re doing right now ain’t good enough.”

From Gregg Popovich:

“He’s a great passer, he can rebound, he can defend. But I think, if anything, he is maturing mentally in the sense that he is enjoying playing the game. He doesn’t listen to talking heads (media critics) anymore — or a lot less than when he first came in the league.”

“I think it was just our mental toughness, especially in the third quarter when they made their run. We just stayed composed and found a way to get a win. We made stops and executed offensively. 

“We pride ourselves on moving the ball, and we know that makes it easier for all of us. We keep everyone in a rhythm when we’re passing the ball and sharing the ball. Tonight we had some turnovers, including myself. I mean, I was the main culprit (with seven), and I’ve got to be more conscious of that and not turn the ball over so much.”

On LeBron James:

“From the seventh grade on, he has lived in a world that none of us can relate to. He’s been anointed as the best player. That can usually distort your perception of what matters, and how much you should be working. He understands the whole puzzle in terms of not only individual work, where he’s going to push himself, but to be out here every day. Shootarounds, practices, film sessions, he’s lacing ‘em up. He doesn’t always feel great, but he’s going to be there to make this thing work.”

“You don’t win on paper. We’ve got to go out and take care of business every night. We come in and work every day.”

“I know I still have room for improvement. I feel I can improve on my shooting, on my ballhandling, on my low-post game.”
