STEPHEN CURRY

From Bob McKillop:

“There aren’t too many people that are rooting against Steph Curry. Steph Curry is as good a person as he is a player. I think that resonates with the world because you can’t find a person who has achieved the greatness he’s achieved in his short period of time amidst the scrutiny that occurs in the world that we live in today who continues to have that sparkling image that Steph has. It’s not just an image, it’s a character, and it is really tough to be that today in our world. He’s still a sparkling character.”

EVAN TURNER

“I think we’re on our way to being a good team and doing things the right way, and, at the same time, there’s nothing wrong with being a blue collar team. We absolutely play tough. The NBA is supposed to be full of superstars, and we kind of prove it wrong. It’s a situation here where we don’t have four or five quote-unquote superstars like most teams. We come out and we try to play our butts off every night. We earn the right to be on the court, and we earn the right to get our wins.”

BILL SELF

“To me, when we play the right way, I think that we’re really good. I do. I love watching our team play when we play the right way. When we don’t share and we’re not aggressive and things like that, we can get average, and talent doesn’t prevail with us. That’s why I think it’s so important, the habits of energy and things like that.”

DEREK FISHER

“Everybody thinks that it’s supposed to come from somebody else other than what’s inside of the guys doing the job. It doesn’t matter what I said. As a player, you have to decide this means as much to you as anything in life because it’s what you’ve chosen to do.”

“They are adult men and professional athletes” who must “hold themselves accountable to a certain standard.”
