But, hey I did everything the right way and earned my spot in this game, nothing was given to me.
David Stern should get with the mothers of the NBA and let the moms decide what the dress code should be. I asked my mother if I could wear a chain, and she told me yeah. So I do stuff that my parents allow me to do.
I have never been a shooter.
I'm tired of hearing about money, money, money, money, money. I just want to play the game, drink Pepsi, wear Reebok.
I play against a front and a back every night, Ming does not have to do that, Duncan does not have to do that, Garnett doesn't do that. I am the only one that has to do that.
Everything happens for a reason. I'm used to it, I prepare for it. Like I say, at the end of the day, those in charge of their own destiny are going to do what's rights for them and their family.
Me shooting 40% at the foul line is just God's way to say nobody's perfect.
I would like to be refered to as 'The Big Aristotle'.
Someday I might have to put down a basketball and have a regular 9-to-5 like everybody else.
One lucky shot deserves another.
But that is the only thing that slows me down is the system. No one, two or three was big enough to slow me down, only the system. It was the system that slowed me down to make my numbers fall. Not because I am older.
I put a lot into it, and when I am done playing, I plan on going undercover and then being the sheriff or chief of police somewhere, either Miami or Orlando, I don't know yet.
They shot the ball well early. What comes out of the microwave hot doesn't always stay hot. I know, because I eat bagels in the morning.
This is a tough game. There are times when you've got to play hurt, when you've got to block out the pain.
I started out as a football player. I liked to inflict pain. In basketball, it was the same thing.
