I always wanted to be a great player coming into the NBA. First coming in, I wanted to be on a team that was a winning team and help me learn how to win in this league. I gradually wanted to become a go-to guy.
You just go out there and try to compete and try to make a play for your teammates.
On his desire to be a two-way player:
Just the will to win. Working out in the summer and getting in shape and getting my mind mentally prepared to do these things. That’s basically it.
From Gregg Popovich:
It’s about how good of a player you want to be. He has the ability to do what a Michael Jordan did at both ends, and I don’t mean he’s Michael Jordan. But you think about the best players in the league, they’re not two-way players. He wants to do that.
