“I put myself out there to help my team, whatever it takes. I know my knee is nowhere near 100 (percent). But at the end of the day if I’m out there I’m going to give it my all and hopefully my team has my back. I’ve been getting a million calls and emails about me, why am I there, this might be the biggest contract of my life. But at the end of the day this game isn’t promised to you. So whenever you’ve got an opportunity to play basketball, a lot of people say it’s bigger than money and it feels like that to me. I cherish this game and I want to be out there fighting, and if I have to fight on one leg, I’m gonna fight on one leg. I can’t let this opportunity pass me by. Eastern Conference finals, playing against LeBron James. I don’t care if I have to do it on one leg, I’ll hobble out there.”

After the Warriors defeated the Grizzlies in game 4 to tie the series at two games apiece. 

“I never get down, I get frustrated about missing shots, and how you play but you never get down on yourself. We’re competitors and as long as there’s another game, you have an opportunity to change it,”

“I’ve got to do whatever it takes. Hopefully, my teammates will be happy about whatever I decide I need to do to help our team win.”

“All I ever wanted was to prove myself and show that I can help my team on both ends.”

“It’s a fun way to play basketball. Whoever’s on the court, you feel like you matter every single time. Even if you don’t shoot the ball, you’re going to make the pass, you’re going to set the screen. What you do on that possession matters. When everyone matters like that, you actually play harder, you buy in a little bit easier. We don’t have one guy shooting 20 shots a game. We’re pretty balanced, so you know, ‘I’m going to set the screen one time, and the next time someone is going to set the screen for me.’ It’s kind of a, ‘I’ll scratch your back and you’ll scratch mine,’ type thing.”

Reflecting on his 12th season playing pro ball:

“I began it with big determination fighting for a spot in Detroit, with no results. I went to the gym EACH and EVERY day to prepare myself to be the most ready as possible when the holy occasion would have come.”

Women’s head coach at Dayton:

“Part of our university philosophy is to lead and serve. We’ve always preached family here — being bigger than an individual. I try to recruit good kids who can play, but I like being around people who I can trust. They all work at it. They are good students. We have doctors and engineers and teachers doing great things. We have a number of professional basketball players out there.”
