You ain't got to say it by name because I saw the way he looked at me when he was on the side of the bench. He was going to see if I can get eye contact. I just looked at him like I looked right past him because he's nobody. You talking to Big Baller.feedback

The monsters in the NBA, their dads wasn't that good. They were OK, they was players, but the fact that the old [Dell] Curry wasn't no All-Star, he wasn't cold. He could shoot the ball, though. Kobe Bryant, his dad wasn't all that, that's why he's such a monster.feedback

My sons are good, they're great. But let's say I really excelled in football and made millions of millions of dollars. Do I spent that time with them now?
