“My main thing when I got here was: What can I do to make things easier for everybody? I’m playing with a lot of great players and I’m just trying to do whatever I can on the floor to help everybody else out.”

From LaMarcus Aldridge

“He’s so unselfish and it just rubs off on everybody. The fact that he goes out every night and doesn’t care about shots and things like that, it just makes guys play harder and want to be like him. He’s definitely the key to the chemistry in our starting lineup, because he doesn’t care about shots or even stats, he just wants to win.”


“People probably don’t know who I am or what I do up here. And some people probably just don’t like my game. I’m not flashy. I don’t dunk. I don’t do anything really exciting. This group has gelled together faster than any team I’ve been on. We just have a bunch of good guys that want to win, that want to play basketball. I think guys are buying into their roles faster than I’ve seen on any team. Usually you have guys who want more — want more shots, want more (playing) time. But since we’re winning, I think guys are buying in. It’s been fun.”
