On his new teammates:
It was a good start. It’s almost like the new guys have been here.
It started with George and his on-the-ball pressure and him just running the team. And then the three guys came off the bench. Jordan was — he’s ready to score at any time, but his composure was great. Rodney plays with so much poise, and Larry was just controlling the perimeter, setting great pick-and-rolls. Got him a lob, got him a dunk, so it was a good start for the new guys, a good start for all of us with our revamped team so far.
George Hill, one of LeBron’s new teammates said:
“LeBron said before the game, ‘Who cares about mistakes? Who cares about missed shots? Who cares about all that stuff?'” We weren’t here to be perfect. There was no judgement out there today. Go out there, have fun, take our shots, be ourselves. I think that’s what we tried to do.”
