Last quote by Kevin Durant

I don't regret clapping back at anybody or talking to my fans on Twitter. I do regret using my former coach's name and the former organization that I played for. That was childish. That was idiotic, all those type of words. I regret doing that and I apologize to him for doing that, but I don't think I'll ever stop engaging with my fans.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Trump Presidency

I grew up in a community that was 95 percent African American, and one of the most flourishing communities in the country. And we did that by loving each other and continuing to uplift each other in our communities. But, also, we fought for equality of all. We fought for wanting everybody in our neighborhoods to feel comfortable everywhere, amongst all people. And I think a lot of players that have stood up and talked about that, have come from communities where we had to band together and rise up.feedback

I'm representing a lot of people. As far as what's going on in our country, for one as an athlete, you have to commend Colin Kaepernick, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, CP3 (Chris Paul), [and] Dwyane Wade for starting that conversation last year. Russell Westbrook also said something in his speech. A lot guys with platforms have drove the conversation in a good direction. And what's going on in Charlottesville, that was unfathomable.feedback

We lean on each other in this building. I keep bringing Seat Pleasant and Prince George's County wherever I go.feedback

It's a country that's 20 years behind in terms of knowledge and experience.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Olympic Games

So, wherever that is, for Kyrie, I hope he finds that. But LeBron James is a phenomenal player. I got a chance to play on his team in the Olympics in 2012, and learned a lot from him.feedback

Jul 25 2017

It depends on what I'm shooting from the field. First quarter, if I'm 4-for-4, I let it go. Third quarter, if I'm like 10-for-16 or 10-for-17, I might let it go. But if I'm like 8-for-19, I'm going to go ahead and dribble one more second and let that buzzer go off and then throw it up there. So it depends on how the game's going.feedback

Jul 25 2017

Since I love you guys so much, I was recorded at 6-10 and three-quarters with no shoes, so with my shoes on I'm 7 feet. I just like messing with people. They just ask me so much ... yeah, I just like messing with people.feedback

Jul 25 2017

No, I can't. It's nothing I can control. I don't know what else to say...I don't know why this is a story.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - NBA

I'm excited to travel to India to help promote the game of basketball and meet the prospects at The NBA Academy India. I've wanted to visit India for a long time, and I can't wait to experience the country's unique culture and share my knowledge with the kids there.feedback

Jul 12 2017

Yeah, I hear all the narratives throughout the season that I was joining, I was hopping on bandwagons, I was letting everybody else do the work. But then that was far from the truth.feedback

Relax, I'm not new to this app. Fall back. Nah I'm flying right now and the wifi kicked in. I don't have anything else to do.feedback

I've never seen nobody block [Irving's] layup, and he's 6-2. I've never seen one person pin his layup on the glass, not one. Because the spin he got on it and he don't got to look at it. I've got so much respect for him because I know how much work he has to put in to be that good.feedback

Jun 14 2017

I was telling some of my friends after Game 2, I was like, Kyrie, he just makes you happy when you watch him play. You just smile when you watch him play, because for somebody to be that skilled, you know he had to work tirelessly at it. The stuff he has in his package is next-level stuff that you can try to teach your kids to do it, but you'll never be able to do it.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - NBA

She loves LeBron. She's been a big LeBron fan for a long time. Everywhere he went, she's just a big fan. I don't even think she really watches basketball. That's what basketball is about, attaching yourself to players.feedback

It felt really, really good, I had a lot of champagne last night. I'm a little better today, but I got more ahead … all summer.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Egypt

I'm sure they've been doing their work for years in advance on this thing and trying to make sure it's perfect for the players, so I have no concerns that USA Basketball won't get it done. So hopefully everybody's comfortable going and have a great time and win a gold.feedback

Jun 14 2017

Nobody wanted him. Nobody thought that he would get back to being Shaun Livingston. Andre Iguodala, he got traded a couple of times. Nobody wanted him. A lot of people didn't expect these guys to be where they are today. Superteam? No, we just work extremely well together. Coach puts us in position to maximize our strengths.feedback

Jun 14 2017

We make each other better and it's not about who gets the credit. It's like, really just about having fun playing ball and let's see how we can win together and that alone just helps the ego. So, sorry I went on a little rant, but that's how I feel about the team. A lot of these guys beat the odds and came out and played a great brand of basketball and put the team first. That should be rewarded, and it did get rewarded with a championship.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - NBA

First of all, if everybody wanted Steph, he would have been the No. 1 pick. A lot of people passed on him. A lot of people doubted Steph, saying he wasn't going to be this good. Klay Thompson, he was just supposed to be this OK shooter in the league, like that's what you thought of Klay Thompson when he came in. Draymond, nobody wanted him. He was a 6-5 power forward. [They said] he couldn't play in the league, he couldn't start in the NBA. Shaun Livingston had a crazy knee injury.feedback

Jun 14 2017

We just won a championship. I can guarantee that wasn't on anybody's mind as we were enjoying it. We haven't even talked [about] it. I haven't even thought about it until I heard it yesterday that it was even talked about. That's a long way away. I'm sure we will have a conversation about it pretty soon. We got the parade. We just won a title. Let us enjoy that and we will figure it out .feedback

Jun 14 2017

I have a take, but I'm going to leave it to myself right now. That's not important, my take on that. It's about us supporting this championship. And we are going to move forward with that when we have a chance to.feedback

Jun 14 2017

The last couple of days I've thought about it. But like I said, we'll all figure something out. We'll work something out. Like I said, I want to be here. We just won a championship, man. Let's see if we can do it again. That's the thing. ... Winning a championship is the ultimate goal and everybody here experienced that and we want to experience it again.feedback

Jun 14 2017

It's special team, a special group. It's a business of basketball obviously, so nothing is for sure, but here, I feel like we can work that out and everybody will have a chance to do this again next year. It's easier said than done, obviously, but that's the goal. We want to keep this thing together and see how we can continue to keep getting better.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - NBA

She's seen me as a kid putting in work. She's seen how I come home after losses and how tough I take it … it feels good to see it come full circle.feedback

Jun 13 2017

I hear all the narratives throughout the season that I was joining, I was hopping on bandwagons, I was letting everybody else do the work. But then that was far from the truth. I came in and tried to help my team. Like I said, tried to be myself, be aggressive and sacrifice as well.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - NBA

You can talk about whatever you want to talk about, but nobody comes in and cares about the game or loves the game as much as I do or works as hard as do I at the basketball game. You can talk about whatever happens on the outside, but inside those lines, I come to bring it every day. I work hard, I believe in myself, I believe in the game, I respect the game, I love the game, and I knew at some point in my life that it will come around for me.feedback

Jun 13 2017

I can't believe it, but I have to. I'm really proud where I am right now as a player and being as consistent every year as I've been. That's something I talked about coming into the league, wanting to do it year in and year out. I've been able to accomplish that individually. But this is not an individual sport. So I've also realized that as far as becoming more of a team player, since my first year I've grown so much and I'm proud of myself in that area as well, but I've got a long ways to go.feedback

Jun 13 2017 - NBA

It's just a great group of guys, great community, great arena, great fans. I'm just so happy to be a part of it.feedback

Jun 13 2017

Andre told me all the time: 'It's your time. Go take it. It's about you. But I'm like: 'No, it's about us. It's about us. But I'm still going to be me.feedback

Jun 13 2017

But nobody cared as long as we won. Andre Iguodala, who is right there – he continued to preach that every single day: It's all about the group. If your intentions are good, then that means, as a team, that we're moving in the right direction.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - NBA

I came here to have fun. I wanted to be one of the guys. Right away, they didn't treat me like I was 'KD,' or act like they wanted me to be a kind of vocal leader. I was happy from Day 1.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - NBA

It's even better than I thought.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - NBA

We just talked about life. When you get a good bond with someone, you can talk for hours.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - NBA

I was used to waiting around for the ball to come to me.feedback

Jun 12 2017

I'm just so happy to be a part of it, man. I can't wait to celebrate with my teammates in the locker room. I told you when I was 8 years old. We did it.feedback

We know that champions don't die. They don't just lay down and die.feedback

Jun 10 2017

We weren't coming to blows. We were just talking.feedback

Jun 08 2017

That's what we always talk about, we all just want to have some fun but play disciplined. And so that's a battle I'm trying to go through more so than worrying about how I'm playing, how great I'm playing. I'm just trying to be solid for my team mates.feedback

Jun 08 2017

I didn't envision anything but just being around good people and getting better every single day. That's exactly what happened throughout the season. I didn't talk to these guys when I made my decision and say we better make it to the Finals and be up in the series around this time, this exact date, or I'm not coming. I mean, it was just, Let's just have some fun playing ball, let's just all get better and let's see what happens.feedback

Jun 08 2017

We're still playing. This isn't over. I can't say if it's the biggest. It's not over. Job's not done...we still got a lot of work left to do.feedback

Jun 08 2017

He's been playing big for us so I guess I'm a genius.feedback

Jun 08 2017

I never been in this position before.feedback

Jun 08 2017

All I was looking at was the bottom of the net. I saw he (James) was playing his heels behind the 3-point line. I've been working on that shot my whole life. To see that go in, that was liberating, man. We've got one more to go.feedback

Jun 08 2017

All I was looking at was the bottom of the net. I've been working on that shot my whole life. To see that go in, that was liberating, man. We've got one more to go.feedback

Jun 08 2017

He gathered himself, got it together, and we moved on. It didn't linger.feedback

Jun 06 2017

It started in 2010, [when] we first made the playoffs and going over scouting reports, defense is the only thing you really are concerned about, really, to start the series. So that's what I started to realize how important defense is. I know that's kind of late on my career, but it's really when I stared to focus on the importance of getting a stop and rebounding and taking care of the ball.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - NBA

Teams have great nights in this league, and it's the NBA, so that can happen a lot. But when you're the one making the run, you could definitely feel the other team looking for answers and being deflated as the game goes on.feedback

Jun 05 2017

I'm just trying to play hard. I swear, that's all I'm trying to do.feedback

Jun 05 2017

Turnovers, can't give them easy baskets.feedback

Jun 04 2017

The first few practices. Me and Mike were looking at each other like, This is how it goes down here?feedback

Jun 04 2017 - NBA

We can't give up 23 points off our turnovers. Especially a championship team like that, they're going to thrive off it. We could play hard every possession, but can we play smart?feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Driverless cars

I remember the first few practices, me and Mike, we were the new guys and we were looking at each other like: 'This is how it goes down here'? Sometimes in games, we don't run a play for two or three minutes straight. And I'm, like, Man, I'm so used to making sure we run something every time down.feedback

Jun 03 2017

Well, I'm pretty sure that won't happen tomorrow. They will be way more physical. They're going to be way more aggressive in the pick-and-roll on the offensive end and defensively. They're going to try to get their 3-point shooters going and rebound the ball. They're going to try to get more offensive rebounds. They're just going to muck the game up and be physical.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - NBA

This is what every player wants to be, is the highest level of basketball. That's what you dream about as a kid, is to play at the highest level. I wouldn't do my teammates any good if I wasn't just enjoying the moment.feedback

Jun 02 2017

We could be a lot better than we were tonight but in the Finals you get a 'W,' we'll take it.feedback

Jun 02 2017

I don't even remember. I'm cool, have fun with that.feedback

Jun 01 2017

I think the start of the game, we were a little too anxious and we missed some layups, we gave up some open shots. I think we just locked in from the second quarter on.feedback

May 31 2017 - NBA

So that's the most important thing, but individually, just work on my game, like I said, approach the game like I always do, and we'll see what happens.feedback

May 31 2017

I know I've grown as a player just through experience from the last five years, but if I don't go out there and execute, none of that matters.feedback

May 31 2017

If you don't like it, don't watch it.feedback

May 30 2017

Obviously it's a new season, especially this last series of the season, and we gotta bring it. You can't expect us to just say 'oh we're a great team on paper together and it's just going to happen.' You know, we got to go out there and try and take it.feedback

May 28 2017

You adapt to the culture. You adapt to the style and that's the same thing that happened to me when I went to Miami. I started to slash more and move more without the ball, shoot more standstill 3s and figure out ways I could be more productive than just having the ball in isolation. So, it's the right thing to do. He's one of the most dangerous guys we have in the world already. So it makes it even more dangerous when you equip that talent, that skill with those guys.feedback

May 26 2017 - NBA

I can't play for every team, so the truth of the matter is I left one team. It's one more team that you probably would've thought would've been a contender. One more team. I couldn't have made the [entire] East better. I couldn't have made everybody [else] in the West better.feedback

May 26 2017 - NBA

I think this move, and the criticism that comes with this move, has made me zero in on what's the most important thing, and that's just playing basketball, working out every day, getting better, enjoying every single day as a basketball player. It made me really appreciate that. It made me go back to that. When you listen to the nonsense, then you start to really let it take control of your thoughts, that's [not good], you know what I'm saying? So I just got back to the game.feedback

May 26 2017

It's a little different, definitely. I can't lie. I went when I was 23 years old, and it felt like the Western Conference Finals was almost like the championship. So it's a little different now, obviously. We have a bigger goal in mind.feedback

May 23 2017 - NBA

I feel like we could definitely be better.feedback

May 23 2017 - NBA

We have a bigger goal in mind.feedback

May 23 2017 - NBA

Yea, it's a little different, definitely. I can't lie. I went when I was 23-years-old, and it felt like the Western Conference Finals was almost like the championship. Just getting to that point, you know how hard it is and how much work you put in to start the season. So, it's a little different now, obviously.feedback

May 22 2017

It's great to be one of the last two teams standing, we'll see how it goes.feedback

May 22 2017

Hopefully a lot of people watch tonight. It'll be a fun one.feedback

May 22 2017

If you don't like it, don't watch it, . I think [the Spurs are] always motivated. I think they always feel like they can win every game every time they step on the floor. Obviously, last night's game was a fun game to watch. Boston played well, but I think the Spurs always have that mentality that they can win any game. So, we know they're not going to give up at all. We know it's going to be a fight to close this thing out just like any other closeout game and were looking forward to it.feedback

May 22 2017

I'm a Manu Ginobili fan, and when you kind of sense the moment, obviously you don't know what's in his future, but the crowd's going crazy for him. I tried to do my best to give him that moment; just take it all in because you could tell how much he's meant to this organization, to this city. Obviously, a true champion. The way he plays the game, you have no choice but to just love watching him play. His creativity, his passion for the game every night. That was a cool moment for him.feedback

May 21 2017

Obviously you never want to see anybody hurt, but you always want guys to have a long career and finish off their career on their terms, so I think that's what's the most important thing. Coach Pop sees the big picture and he knows that [Leonard] has a long career ahead of him, and hopefully he continues to get better and the ankle will get stronger.feedback

May 21 2017

They make it about the players, which it should always be about. I'm sure that the fans, and even Kawhi, wanted to play on a hurt ankle. But he's 25 years old, has got a lot of great basketball left in him, and you know . . . the risk to reward, I don't know if it's worth it to maybe risk making it worse to go out there and play.feedback

May 21 2017

But you've got to appreciate an organization who puts the players first instead of worrying about wins and losses all the time.feedback

May 21 2017

They were going to come out and hit us in the mouth. I think we did a good job of taking that punch and just kept playing.feedback

May 19 2017

Yeah, he's going to play. I haven't talked to anybody, but that's just my gut. They're a way better team, obviously, with him on the court. They pose a different threat.feedback

May 18 2017

So many great players, so many players had great seasons. It's kind of hard to put guys on the first, second, third teams. So many guys played well this year. Just grateful to be a part of the list. Obviously I feel like I should be a first-team player, but it is what it is.feedback

May 17 2017

That's just been the message all year, just play with urgency and start the game off with some energy and throw the first punch. Unlike Game 1 we did that tonight. We know they're a little undermanned but they still play extremely hard, so we knew we couldn't come out here and relax and think they were just going to give us the game. We had to go take it.feedback

May 16 2017

We have to strike first. We can't allow them to get off to the start they had last game. We have to be the aggressors.feedback

May 14 2017

Steph got us going in the third, I just tried to do my part in the fourth.feedback

May 12 2017

Now you're getting players to where they realize their power, and they're not doing it. And more power to them.feedback

May 10 2017 - NBA

I remember it like it was yesterday. All the strength coaches were laughing at me and s--t. They were giggling with each other that I couldn't lift 185 pounds and I was like, Alright, keep laughing. Keep laughing.' It was a funny thing because I was the only ne that couldn't lift it and I was struggling to lift it. I was embarrassed at that point but I'm like, Give me a basketball, please. Give me a ball.feedback

May 10 2017 - NBA

I knew nobody in that draft could guard me one-on-one.feedback

May 10 2017 - NBA

I figured they knew who they were going to draft already. But that says a lot as well. I was the No. 2 pick and I couldn't lift 185 pounds. That shows you that basketball isn't really that type of sport. Now [players aren't attending] but back then, every player was there.feedback

May 10 2017 - NBA

But, hey, like I said, I knew I was the most skilled player there. I knew I was the best player in the draft. I knew my skillset was a little different from everybody else and [they] couldn't guard me. [They] still can't.feedback

May 10 2017 - NBA

I just stuck with what I did, man. My body type is not the one to get yoked up and cut up. I knew that. My mom told me that too. I was feeling down about it because everybody needed something to say about me. So, my mom was like, That's not who you are. You're never going to be Alonzo Mourning, that type of built.' I always wanted to be a basketball player. I didn't want to be a weight lifter. I knew how important your body was. I'm getting that now as an older player and I realize that, but it's about flexibility with me because I'm never going to be strong.feedback

May 10 2017 - NBA

I knew that for sure. I knew that. And I knew that you don't need to [bench press] to lift a basketball up. And I knew that this wasn't football where that stuff matters. I knew as a basketball player, I had a lot of skill, more skill than anybody in the draft. And I knew that if I worked as hard as hard as I could, then that s--t wouldn't matter at the end of the day. It still doesn't matter. I was ranked the last person in camp, drills-wise. I was the worst player, and the first player didn't get drafted. That tells you a lot about the significance of that s--t.feedback

May 10 2017 - NBA

It's good for guys who are trying to fight their way into the first round, fight their way into the draft ... go to play. But if you're like a top pick and you know you're going to be a top pick, just work out. Just work on your game and then they'll see you in the individual workouts and they've been watching you all year, so your whole body of work is more important than just going there for a couple of days.feedback

May 10 2017 - NBA

You could look at [vertical], but how can you use that in a basketball set? You can be the highest jumper but if you don't use it in a basketball game, you don't show your athleticism, you stay grounded all game, then it's not really doing you any good...Play one-one and five-on-five and that's how you really see who the best basketball players are. A lot of sh--t that don't have to do with the game, they try to put in there but I understand. It's the combine.feedback

May 08 2017

We have multiple defenders that can guard multiple positions. That makes up for a lot, so we can throw a couple bodies on their best player. We can switch some stuff and guard big, so that helps us out as well. The other thing is rebounding. Once we rebound the basketball, we push and we like our chances in transition.feedback

May 07 2017

I'm going to try to say this as humble as I can, but I've been doing this for so long, and every time I get out the bed and we have a game that day, I feel like I can go out there and score. It's the other things that I try to do – defensively, helping my teammates, get them open shots, moving, setting screens. Scoring and stuff is not easy, but it's what I do the best. When I try to do the other things ... I feel like it opens up my scoring a little bit more.feedback

May 02 2017

Me? I wasn't tired. ... I was trying to make the right play, but sometimes you just gotta break it off and go score.feedback

May 01 2017

I'm sure it's probably clubs, but I've never been to one in Utah. It's a few restaurants close to the hotel, but you're not scattered out. L.A. is just bigger. That's the only difference. But preparation wise, my approach is the same as in any other city.feedback

Apr 25 2017

I think they want somebody on the wing that can take the pressure off those two guards (C.J. McCollum and Lillard), somebody that's big for their position. But they're right there, man. They're a good team. They started off slow. I think they should have been a higher seed, but they fought their way to get in the playoffs. They have a future center in [Jusuf] Nurkic who took them over the top, but I think they need another ball handler on the wing to get them going. It's going to be fun playing against these guys in the next few years.feedback

Apr 25 2017

We knew if we threw the first punch, we knew that it would overwhelm them a bit, especially being up 3-0.feedback

Apr 21 2017

I'm not on my deathbed. It's a calf muscle. I'll hopefully get to play here soon. I got on the court today, so it's not the end of the world. ... I want to be out there, but it's not life or death. It's not career-threatening. It's just a calf strain.feedback

Apr 21 2017

I want to play. I want to be out there every step of the way with the team, but I understand health is important and I want to feel great hopefully for a long run this postseason. I understand the big picture, but I still want to play. They've got my best interest. Obviously, I played through injuries before, but I was out for a month and I came back and got injured again. So I don't want that to happen again if I do push it. I don't want to play one game and sit out another two weeks. So I'm just trying to be smart about it, but also I'm still itching to get out there on the court.feedback

Apr 16 2017

The game ratchets up when you get into the playoffs. I definitely felt good out there.feedback

We're all praying for him, the NBA family's behind him.feedback

Playing against the best players in the world, at the biggest stage, that's the goal for every player.feedback

Apr 09 2017

If you get a dunk the first play of the game no matter how long you've been out, that feels good. I was able to get some stops and get a little assist, that felt great.feedback

Apr 09 2017

You get a dunk first play of the game no matter how long you've been out that feels good. ... I felt good putting my jersey on, running out with the team. It felt normal again. I'm a basketball player, I love playing basketball, that's my favorite thing to do, so to feel like I'm a part of the team, feel like I'm a part of this energy that we have feels great.feedback

Apr 07 2017

I'm just going to go out there and be me. I can't think about how I'll feel because I'll end up holding back. I just want to go out there full throttle and see what happens.feedback

Apr 07 2017

Today was one of those days where I went out there and played, and practiced with the guys and I felt normal. I've been waiting for that feeling for a couple of weeks now. I play basketball for a living. If I had to wait until the playoffs, I would have waited. At some point, I would just have to throw myself in the fire. It doesn't matter if it's the regular season or playoffs. It's still basketball. Guys are still out there competing. No matter if it's the 80th game or the first game of the playoffs.feedback

Apr 07 2017

I played 58 games with Steph. That's a lot of games. I just didn't get here yesterday. I've been here the whole season. I just happen to miss 20 games. I know a lot of people may seem like I just go there but I've been here the whole year and we've been playing well the whole season.feedback

His confidence level is high. … Some of these young cats that come into the league, they got super confidence, uber-confidence, and they just go through the motions, where they're just too cool, you know what I'm saying? But he had a little – he had some dog in him. He might foul you hard. That's how I know, actually, if young guys they really want it. They'll foul you hard and play physical. I was playing with him and he'd foul me hard, and I'm like, I like that. I like that you care.' Because a lot of these cats don't care about the game.feedback

I know Oubre because he came to my camps a couple years ago when he was in high school and when he was in college.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Either way, I knew it's something I had to conquer. I knew it's something I had to work extremely hard to get back. I still do no matter what and I've been through it before.feedback

Mar 08 2017

It was a crucial, probably 30 minutes, where I thought that I'd have to go through this long rehab to get back onto the court. And then I got a call that said it wasn't as bad. [The] reason that I'm here now is that I work extremely hard, and it's nothing different. It's just trying to get my knee right and get my body right, and hopefully I'll be back to play soon. I had three foot surgeries, and that was tough to go through because it was my first one being out, going under and getting surgery. That was different.feedback

Mar 08 2017

But now, I didn't have to get surgery, so I'm just rehabbing every single day. It could be worse, like I said, so mentally I'm good. I'm in a good place. I'm not playing right now, which is tough, but I'm getting better day by day and I'll be out there as soon as I'm ready to play.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Got to keep this jumper right. It could have been a lot worse. I'm not even thinking about that right now. I know that's what everybody wants to know or are wondering. Whenever my body tells me I'll be ready to play, that's when I'll be ready to play. I'm not really thinking too far down the line, I'm just worried about having a great day today and I look forward to having a good one tomorrow.feedback

Mar 08 2017

Mentally I'm good, I'm in a good place. I'm not playing right now, which is tough because I love to play, but I'm getting better day by day and I'll be out there as soon as I'm ready to play.feedback

Feb 19 2017

It was a great basketball play. He was open so I threw him the lob. He can jump really high so yeah, good play.feedback

Feb 17 2017

I'm excited to be here. It's not real-life problems. Stuff you guys may think is important, I don't really think is important at all, so when I look at it that way, it's pretty easy to me.feedback

Feb 16 2017

I define my career, at the end of the day. And it's pretty damn good so far.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - NBA

I thought they would. They were playing confident and free. They had nothing to lose, especially missing some of their guys.feedback

Feb 13 2017 - NBA

Those two are going to play well off each other. Having two guys, as big fellas, that can do that, it takes the pressure off your wings, your point guards, allows them to play with their athleticism. ... Adding another guy that can play definitely helps.feedback

Feb 12 2017

Basketball is fun in general, especially in an environment like this. The crowd was amazing. They were loud – as loud as I've ever heard them.feedback

Feb 12 2017

It's part of the game and I respect that. We should have just kept playing. I don't even think they should have reviewed anything. It's a part of it. Hard fouls, (expletive) talking – all that stuff is just a part of the game. That's what makes it fun for us.feedback

Feb 11 2017

You plan for the worst. Obviously, I know how it is. I know fans are loud, especially here. Just try not to think about it and go out there and play. Once the ball is tipped up, just go out there and play the game.feedback

Feb 11 2017

There's definitely emotion. I played here for eight years. There's no getting around that.feedback

Feb 10 2017

It always gives you a bounce in your step when you go back to the place where you played. You get an emotional kickstart. Just walking into the building is exciting, seeing all your old friends and having all those memories.feedback

Feb 10 2017

It's good to see everybody but once the ball's tipped you're just playing, just hooping. It's as simple as that. ... It's a weird feeling but it's nice because out of 82 games sometimes you need that emotion, and that'll definitely do it. I can't even imagine what it'll feel like for KD, that's a totally different level. It's one thing to be a role player for a few years but to be a superstar in one town and have the whole place adore, the whole city, to go back is going be very emotional for him.feedback

Feb 10 2017 - NBA

Well, that's real life. I've been a part of that group going on four years now. Just 'cuz I left there don't mean I'll stop building with them. That's totally separate from this NBA stuff. Those kids mean a lot to me, definitely want to continue to keep helping them. I'm glad I can keep helping growing the school. It's all about the community there. That was home for me for eight years. I've still got love for the people there.feedback

Feb 03 2017

He has 200 already? That's crazy. It's very difficult to do that, especially when everybody expects you to shoot the 3. His skill allows him to play that way.feedback

Feb 03 2017 - Twitter

Everybody came out with a great mindset in helping each other on the glass, knowing we were kind of thin on the front line. Our bench was great, our guards, everybody came in on rebounding.feedback

Feb 02 2017

Early on, he got it cookin. We kind of rode the wave from there.feedback

Jan 25 2017

We're resilient, we're persistent and ... we just kept grinding it out.feedback

Jan 21 2017

I think it was good defense on our part. They missed a couple of open ones, but that's from – they didn't have a rhythm. I think we did a good job of putting a hand up on the shots and getting out and rebounding ... for the most part we contested, forced them to shoot in the paint and got out and ran.feedback

Jan 21 2017

You don't want Harden up there dancing with the ball, shooting step backs and running down court dancing. So we did a good job of limiting his shots, making him pass the ball and contesting shots as well at the 3-point line.feedback

Dec 25 2016

I was trying to make a move. I didn't fall on my own.feedback

Dec 02 2016 - Snapchat

There are going to be nights like that. You've got to find a way to win. We put ourselves in a good position to win.feedback

Nov 24 2016

That's pretty crazy. We almost have more assists than rebounds. That's sick. That shows we're getting more comfortable with each other.feedback

Nov 04 2016

I don't want to say any part was strange. I've moved on. I'm part of the Golden State Warriors. I'm excited to be part of this team. What I did those last eight years was special and something I'm never going to forget, but I'm trying to look forward. I just try to separate those emotions and feelings and also try to do my job.feedback

Nov 04 2016

When you get dunked on like that, as a competitor out there you want to come back and try to make a play and try to ignite your team. He ignited his team with that dunk. I was just trying to do the same throughout the whole game.feedback

Nov 04 2016

As soon as the game started it brought back some memories, but after that it was back to business.feedback

Oct 26 2016

What we can't do is let these games pile up. We can't panic. It's Game 1 of 82.feedback

Aug 21 2016

To come out there and play as well as we did against a team that had stepped up their play as well, it showed that we came together at the right time.feedback

Aug 21 2016

To go home as gold medalists and leave Coach K off with another gold was one of our main goals as well.feedback

Aug 19 2016

This is where we wanted to be. We talked about it all summer and to be here for the final game, to win the gold, for all the marbles, we like our chances.feedback

Aug 18 2016

The only thing that we changed was our passion and our energy. We were all one unit tonight and we need that going forward.feedback

Aug 17 2016

We've got to build on it, but we're not satisfied at all.feedback

Aug 17 2016

We fed off wanting to play better than the last three games.feedback

Aug 09 2016 - NBA

It is going to be a grind-out game, I'm looking forward to it. Most of their main players play in our league (the National Basketball Association) but we'll prepare for them tomorrow and see what we got.feedback

Aug 08 2016 - Venezuela

The game of basketball, everything's not going to be easy. We know that, even with this great team.feedback

Aug 06 2016

Just because they aren't here today, we've got another batch of guys that's walking around on the streets saying they want to win a gold medal and we all have something in common. It's cool to have a fraternity of guys who have won a gold medal. It's rare.feedback

Aug 06 2016

When you get hot, you want to see your bench get excited for you. That's better than making the shot, to be honest with you. When I saw my teammates get excited for me, that kept me going.feedback
