“When guys know you’re constantly moving, nobody wants to guard you. I think I’m in the best shape in the league. I tell people if I ever get tired, I know the person guarding me is exhausted.”

“I can run. That’s what I do. Sometimes I don’t even care if I get the ball. It’s just the fact that somebody’s chasing me.”

“I developed my mid-range game because that’s the one area very few players stand out in these days.”

“I want to be the best stop-on-a-dime shooter around.”

“I work on seeing the whole floor, setting up teammates.”

“I’d much rather be second fiddle on a contender than a so-called superstar on a bad team.”

“One thing that I am is mentally tough.”

“I’m a happy guy, that’s just the way I am.”

“I think I have a good understanding of what it takes to win the tight ones.”

“I love the post-season. I never take a possession off because you never know when it could be your last game. That’s the fun part about it.”

“I tell everybody I have inner strength. It’s not always what you have on the outside. It’s what inside.”

“My goal is to be an elite player in the league.”

“Any time you’re winning, it doesn’t matter if you score 20, 30, five or 50. When you’re winning, everybody gets the glory.”

“I learned to treat my body as an investment.”
