“I think, team first.  It allows me to succeed; it allows my team to succeed.”

“But now, being a parent, I go home and see my son and I forget about any mistake I ever made or the reason I’m upset.  I get home and my son is smiling or he comes running to me.  It has just made me grow as an individual and grow as a man.”

“I don’t need too much.  Glamour and all that stuff don’t excite me.  I’m just glad I have the game of basketball in my life.”

“I never get too high on my stardom or what I can do.”
