LeBron James quotes

No, no, they didn't mix up the coverage. They did a good job of sprinting back, leveling to the ball, doubling me a little bit more in the post.feedback

Well, I feel some adversity is all part of the postseason. I feel like you have to have some type of adversity in order to be successful. If it was going to happen, let it happen now; let us regroup. Let us regroup and all the narrative and everything that was going on, let's regroup and let's get back to playing desperate basketball, which they did tonight. So we've got to be a lot better, for sure.feedback

I think it's great -- what happened hurts. It's a loss in the postseason. But I'm glad it kind of hurt, that it happened the way it did -- let our foot off the gas a little bit, didn't keep the pressure on them like we have been accustomed to. But we have to play a lot better in Game 4.feedback

I was just pretty poor. What else do you want me to say? It seems like you only ask questions when we lose. ... You always come around when we lose, I swear.feedback

I believe we've got another level, as well. As well as we played tonight, we've got a couple of things we can do better. There's no complacency for us now. But we like where we're headed.feedback

No, I didn't see it. And what are you going to do about it at the end of the day? My only job is to try to be the MVP for this team every night, put my teammates, put our franchise in position to be successful and ultimately compete for a championship. For me, I know what I bring to the table. This league knows what I bring to the table. That's for you guys to write about. It's not for me to be concerned about. I haven't been fourth in a long time.feedback

But his mentality needs to stay the same as Minnesota, and I think as he continues to get even more comfortable and comfortable -- tonight was one of those instances where every time he got the ball, it was a small guarding him or somebody was in the post, he was aggressive. He grabbed every rebound for the most part with him and Tristan (Thompson) in the paint, and he was very aggressive with his shot. He also got to the free throw line 10 times -- well, nine. So definitely that mentality from Minnesota is what we all love.feedback

For me I saw that in Kev this morning. I knew what type of game he was going to have. I mean, he came through for us. We want the mentality of Kevin from Minnesota, but his usage rate don't have to be as high as Minnesota. Obviously we all know that he was a featured guy pretty much every possession going down the floor, and here that's changed a little bit because we have other guys.feedback

I felt OK last night. I knew I wouldn't feel that great after the game, and I don't feel that great right now. ... But I should be much better (Friday). There's going to be some adjustments made from both sides. We have to be ready for it. Obviously, we don't know the exact adjustments, but we know they're going to make adjustments. That's what good teams do, and we have to be ready for whatever they bring to the table.feedback

It was our two bigs that set the tone – Kev and Double-T (Tristan Thompson), they were phenomenal. I saw it in Kev this morning. I knew what type of game he was going to have. So he came through for us.feedback

It don't matter. Just to be part of the postseason is a treat for me. I've been fortunate enough to be a part of it for 12 straight years at this point now, so any building I'm able to walk into at any point of the playoffs is always a treat.feedback

We know the ultimate goal, yes, but at the end of the day if you're able to be successful in this league, this is the No. 1 league, if you're able to be successful at any level, you can always appreciate it. You're never satisfied, for me, unless you hoist a trophy, but I can appreciate what we've been able to accomplish in the two, three years I've been back. We've got to continue the journey, it's not done.feedback

Just getting back into the flow of basketball. We've been around the flow for eight days now. But (not) a game situation. ... Getting into the flow ... it shouldn't be too hard. These fans and this atmosphere and this team that we're playing against should put us right back where we need to be.feedback

We're going to work on our habits this week and see what happens. Even though we won this series, there's some things we can clean up. We have another level and we believe we can get there.feedback

It doesn't matter to me. I'm excited about us getting an opportunity to represent our franchise in the Eastern Conference Finals to go play for the big one.feedback

The fact that we play our best basketball in the postseason lets us know that we're up for the challenge.feedback

We needed that spark. We just wanted to try to get defensive stops while he was in the zone and we were able to do that.feedback

It's rewarding when you can advance. It's not just given to you, you have to go out and earn it. Once again I'm part of a team that's been able to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals. It's going to be my ninth time in 14 years. I'll take those numbers.feedback

At 22 I wasn't mentally ready for this. You dream about it, you want it but you don't have the experience to actually know. Mentally I had never been a part of it so I didn't know exactly how much commitment and how much sacrifice that you got to make not only for yourself but for your team.feedback

But without that experience I wouldn't be where I am today.feedback

We don't need to be thinking about a sweep or getting rest, we need to be thinking about what we need to do to execute defensively and offensively coming into Sunday.feedback

We knew we were coming to a hostile environment, we knew they were going to give us everything they had, no matter who was in the lineup. We just had to weather the storm.feedback

It's bait. If [Ibaka] would have reached in, I would have put it on the floor. It was a mental thing. Everything I do is mental. I was just basically in my zone, in my comfort zone, and after I spun the ball and I jabbed him, I seen what I needed to see from the defender to be able to get that shot off. If I didn't see it, I would have drove it, and if I didn't have the drive, I would have gave it up and let one of my teammates attack. What if I missed the shot? What if he stole the ball? We wouldn't be talking about it.feedback

He's automatic. When [Korver] steps on the floor, eyes have to be on him. ... Just his ability to be out on the floor just helps us all out offensively because it just creates more space. From the time we got him all the way to now, and as we continue to play throughout the postseason, he's been huge for our ballclub.feedback

I don't know, man. It's the bunker mentality of knowing it's 15 guys plus the coaching staff and whoever is there that's traveled with us against the whole state and the whole city.feedback

I just like the adversity of the road. Home cooking is great, love the home fans for 14 years. But I love playing out on the road more than I love playing at home. It's just a weird thing.feedback

You hear a name like Kareem, a guy who's done so many great things, not only as an individual but as a teammate. Winning championships in the '80s and things of that nature and how many points he's put up. He's somebody you read about. I didn't get an opportunity to actually watch him play growing up, but I just read about his accomplishments and things he was able to do, so, it's pretty cool.feedback

I'm feeling pretty good. Just blessed I'm able to make a few plays tonight to help us win another game.feedback

Listen, I think if the effort is there and you're flying around and some teams are going to make shots, they are going to make contested shots. It's a lot of great athletes in this game and a lot of great players. Going to make tough shots and I think if the energy is there and you can hold that for as close to 48 minutes then the percentages and points will go down.feedback

Mentally I'm prepared for every situation they could put themselves in. Me personally. I'm prepared for them being big, going small, having three point guards on the court, having four wings and one point guard, having two bigs, me personally I'm ready for whatever that they're capable of or can do for their team.feedback

I believe that she was just looking upon him, looking down on him and giving him everything and more. There was no way he was going to get tired last night and I just felt that – and I saw watching the game – at no point was he going to get tired. I just think she was just looking down on him and just giving him any extra motivation, any little touch, any little spring.feedback

I just think she was just looking down on him and just giving him any extra motivation, any little touch, any little spring. When you're on the court that's your sanctuary and that's where you can kind of block everything out no matter what you're going through in your individual life, block everything out because that's your happy place and it definitely showed for him in his individual performance.feedback

That's two of the best two guards we have, especially in the Eastern Conference, if not the whole league.feedback

He's accepted the challenge. We've tried to just communicate on the back line of defense, second and third of the defense. Just let him know that we're protecting him or what's coming up or what's going on behind him. He's taking the challenge, so we just want to continue to do that. J.R. definitely made himself into a two-way player. We said it all last year, said it in the offseason, and because of injuries he didn't get much of a rhythm for the regular season, but I feel like he's back in form where he left off last year in the postseason.feedback

I'm playing in my comfort zone. I know what they want to take away ... I just trusted my ability and I made a couple plays.feedback

I think it's 19 years. He put his mark on this game. Somebody I've had a lot of battles with, somebody I've always respected and competed against and pushed me in the Eastern Conference for quite a while. A champion. His numbers and what he was able to do out on the floor speaks for itself. So I would say his next stop is the Hall of Fame. Great ride. He had a hell of a ride for sure.feedback

We've built the who we are over the, I don't even know, last eight months, nine months. Make adjustments throughout the playoff series but at the end of the day we are who we are. We know what we're about, we know how we can win and you go from there, so it's not about trying to surprise nobody. It's about trying to out execute them, and we'll see where that takes you.feedback

That was the mystery coming into the game, how we would come out? Obviously you prepare, you want to come out and play well, but you never know after an eight-day layoff. But the energy was phenomenal. He put his mark on this game. Somebody I've always respected and competed against and pushed me in the Eastern Conference for quite a while. A champion. His numbers and what he was able to do out on the floor speaks for itself. So I would say his next stop is the Hall of Fame. He had a hell of a ride for sure.feedback

As a team I think we had great energy, and even some of the mistakes that we had we were able to cover up for because our energy level was high. But we'll be a lot better on Wednesday. He put his mark on this game. Somebody I've always respected and competed against and pushed me in the Eastern Conference for quite a while. A champion. His numbers and what he was able to do out on the floor speaks for itself. So I would say his next stop is the Hall of Fame. He had a hell of a ride for sure.feedback

I feel like I'll be better [in Game 2] on Wednesday. We made some mistakes, but we made up for it with our energy.feedback

Adds a veteran, for one, a guy that has experience. Finals experience as well. And also a guy who can stretch the floor and create, also protect the rim at times. It definitely helped them out, was a good piece for them.feedback

No built-in advantage. Doesn't mean I'm going to be able to win a road game in this series. Just play the game. For me, I just go out and try to win every game and do whatever it takes to help our team be successful. [We are] going to a hostile building in Game 3 and Game 4 [at the Air Canada Centre], and we know that. Their fans are unbelievable. I stated that last year after we closed that series out. Doesn't mean we're going to be able to win this year. We've got to go out and make it happen. We have to worry about Game 1 first.feedback

Sometimes I'm able to see a few of them. Some of them are actually pretty good, and some of them are like I've seen them before, seen it since high school, actually. Some of them are pretty good. They take a lot of time out of their day to try to figure out how to get my attention away from the game. But I'm able to look at all the signs in the crowd and still maintain my focus on the court, too, so it doesn't do much.feedback

The game plan is from the coaching staff. Coaches always ask me how I'm feeling throughout the game. And I feel great. If I'm out on the floor and I'm hurting us by playing a lot of minutes, then I need to come out. But In this series, I played a lot of minutes and I felt great. I actually could have played the whole game if need be.feedback

Being a first-generational money maker in a household is a scary thing. If there's one thing I still do, I would never pull my money out in front of somebody. You would never know how much money I got in my pocket – that comes from me being from the bottom.feedback

No matter who's on the floor with me and for myself, I just don't settle for being not as great as I can be. It's not going to result in a stat line like this every night. When my mind is fresh and in the moment, sometimes certain things like this happen, so I don't know. I can't even really appreciate it. I'll let you guys write your words about it and go from there. Only thing that matters is a win and that's what I'm here for.feedback

I knew I had to be better because of Kobe Bryant. I knew he was in the gym, and I knew he was working on his game. And I knew he was great. So every day that I didn't want to work out or every day I felt like I couldn't give more, I always thought of Kobe. Because I knew that he was getting better and I was like, Man, if you take a day off, he's going to take advantage of it. You cannot take a day off. You cannot take a day off.' And I used him for my motivation throughout my career because I always knew that he was working on something. So that part will be missed a little bit.feedback

It was someone that I always knew I had to be in the gym.feedback

Myself and Kyle, we kind have been brainstorming about it, how to get it to be more efficient. I mean, honestly, Kyle is probably one of the most efficient guys we have from the free throw line on our team. So, I'm a basketball mind, I'm open minded about trying to figure out ways that can help my efficiency so, it's a good start.feedback

It's killing me. Yeah it's killing me, it's killing me. Can't have everything. Everything else is creeping up and that's taking a step down. But I'll be fine for the playoffs. For the rest of the regular season I'm going to end up shooting in the 60s, which is a career-low for me, but the postseason I'll be up there in the 80s.feedback

He missed. We won. We wanted to get the ball out of his hands, make somebody else try to beat us and live with the results.feedback

This is the start of a long-a-- journey. There's going to be adversity, there's going to be challenges. ... The key is to stay even-keeled.feedback

I'm happy we got the victory. I'm happy how emotional we was. I'm happy with the energy and the effort. Played with energy and effort all night. … Game 1 has always been a feel-out game for myself. Seeing what you can do, seeing ways you can get better and you always go into Game 2 even more prepared because you want to see what type of game plan they have. As the series goes on and on, we start to know more about the team, more about your opponent and try to be better the next game. But, this was a great start for us.feedback

This year has been very challenging by the simple fact that a lot of our guys haven't been able to make road trips. When J.R. [Smith] was out three months, he wasn't able to be on road trips with us. When Kev [Love] was hurt, he couldn't make the road trips. And some other guys couldn't make the road trips. So automatically some of those things changed because we don't have our full unit. And we've had 24 different players on our team this year, so that's changed.feedback

Every year's different. Every year is challenging. You have to be able to, if the year's not going as well as you might have planned, you've got to be able to adjust to that, which is OK. We live in the moment and we have to focus on what needs to be done today and go from there. It was hard to get a lot of camaraderie and cohesiveness on the floor of a steady diet of what we know we can be with all the injuries every time. I feel like we got healthy, somebody else went out, back in, went out.feedback

We've got to have our mind sharp, our bodies as fresh as possible going into Game 1 on Saturday. You guys can harp on the regular season. I'm not one to do it, not with the postseason starting right now. You guys are trying to drain my energy. I just told you I feel great. Don't do that to me. I feel good. I'm not going backwards.feedback

We have a good chance to win it all. But it starts with baby steps first and we understand that. It starts with our opponent in two days. We have to be very determined, but we also have to be very smart about our game plan and how we execute that game plan, execute that (for as close to) 48 minutes as possible starting with Game 1. I'm not giving it to you. But I've got the answer why I feel like we've got a great chance.feedback

For me, it's never been about trying to get the number one seed, it's just trying to play as great a basketball as you can every single night and whatever happens, happens. Obviously the last 10 games, I think we're 5-5. We've had some good moments, we've had some not-so-good moments, obviously with today. The best thing for our team is we want to go down the stretch and be healthy. If we're healthy, we can put a game plan together and compete against anybody in the postseason.feedback

Obviously, the last 10 games we've been 5-5. We had some good moments and we had some not-so-good moments today. The best thing for our team is we want to go down the stretch, be healthy and put a game plan together.feedback

We had some bad breaks, obviously, with the jumpball. A couple of their guys were out of bounds. And then with the jumpball for Kyrie in the corner, I'm sitting right next to the (other) ref (Leroy Richardson) and asking for a timeout and the explanation he gave me, I never heard in my 14-year career. Never. So it doesn't take away from the fact that we still had a huge lead to start the fourth, but every play counts, no matter what is going on.feedback

You expect for us to want to get better, and we were doing that and we took a couple steps back tonight.feedback

I mean, do you have a choice? You don't have a choice. We got three more games left, I believe -- Sunday, Monday, Wednesday. We don't have a choice. We move on to the next one and try to get better from there.feedback

It's a long, strenuous season and the NBA does a great job of putting the schedule together as best as they can. You're going to have back-to-backs. You're going to have certain games where certain things fall on certain nights, but a coach's job is to figure out a way for their team to compete for a championship, not compete for a game.feedback

I'm not one to get caught up in regular season big games. I've been to six straight Finals, I'm the last person to ask.feedback

We don't know what we can be. We just don't. But we know we played damn good tonight.feedback

Man I can't watch this anymore man!feedback

I had good intentions but I was a little bit too demonstrative at that point in the game. I can't show up my teammates. Double T worked hard, he's a big-time player for our team. I had good intentions of what I wanted to happen, but the way it came out, it didn't look good on TV.feedback

I'm happy for Lance, man. He's had a rough year with injuries and things of that nature. It was good. I needed that.feedback

How much does it matter to me? It matters more that we're playing better basketball than where we're at, and if that results in us getting the number one seed, getting the number two seed, three or whatever the hell it is, I want us to be playing better basketball. That's what it comes down to. I'm not worried about anything. I feel like when we're playing Cavaliers basketball, when we're playing the type of basketball that we know we're capable of playing, when we're at full strength, we can start off on the road. We've done it before.feedback

I've learned over the season there's a time and place for it. Certain situations. I kind of wait for the right time ... So my time will come.feedback

It's a delicate time right now for our team. A lot of people talking ... guys in the locker room. I'm not saying it's for the bad. We've got a couple guys that's shown leadership, some guys that's been in the fray before that's giving their opinions.feedback

When he (Wall) is making shots like that, they're a very tough team to beat.feedback

I missed a couple of shots and I was like, The hell with those things.feedback

Keep my family out of this. I actually like [Lonzo]. I like his game.feedback

Keep my kids' name out of your mouth, keep my family out of your mouth. This is dad to dad. It's a problem now.feedback

I don't ever shy away from a guy getting a second chance, and if this is his destination, I'd be happy to be part of his process.feedback

I haven't been around Larry, so I don't know what consists of him playing every night or him getting back to the flow of things. From the outside looking in, it looks like he wants to be back on an NBA floor again. He has the talent -- we all know that. He has the ability. I think this will be a perfect locker room for him to try to help him. You know me: I'm always in favor of helping somebody get their things back right. I was part of it with Bird in Miami, helped Greg as much. I was part of it with Eddy Curry -- he won a ring.feedback

It looks like he wants another opportunity, and hopefully, if we're the team, hopefully we give him an opportunity. Why not? Everyone deserves a second chance, and it looks like he wants to get back to playing the game he loves, and hopefully this is his destination. You don't know how much you can get out of a guy that's been out so long, but I'd love to see it. Why not?feedback

I could talk about when he played. An athletic big guy, incredible shot-blocking skills, anticipation around the rim, can finish around the rim and block shots, and being able to guard perimeter guys as well. With his hiatus, I don't know what he was going through, so I can't comment about somebody's personal life because I wasn't a part of it.feedback

I gotta congratulate Dirk Nowitzki on putting up 30,000 points. I'm watching the game right now. Congratulations. There's no way I was missing this moment. Hopefully I can join you at some point, big fella. Salute.feedback

It's very deflating. It's a tough moment. We all were excited about the acquisition, you know, bring him in here. It's a tough one, not only obviously for him, first of all, but then for our ballclub.feedback

Every single time, I shed a tear. It could come from obviously me being part of a single-parent household and never seeing my father and things growing up when I was a kid, but it's just an emotional part.feedback

The whole thing about empowerment of yourself and having your visions become a reality and the more and more that you dream and actually talk about something that you want to do, it can become true.feedback

That was one of the one things I got out of it. As complex as that book is and as deep as that book is – it is so, so deep – I was able to figure out a way to translate it to my life at that point in time where I was like, oh I can remember when I was the 11-year-old kid and I was telling myself 'Why me?' some days and I was always telling myself 'Okay, let's change the narrative of why me, why us, why are we put in this position? Let's change the narrative.feedback

I saw Crowder running to me, he jumped and then I saw Marcus Smart running toward me. I saw D-Will naked in the corner, so I gave him an opportunity and he just missed it. We got the shot we wanted.feedback

I don't know if I'm on his level, but I definitely slowed up because I knew it was him. I'm not taking no legend out.feedback

I hope it's not serious. We'll see what happens.feedback

He can knock down shots and he can play make.feedback

He's played in big games before so you know he won't shy away from the moment. It's going to help us out a lot.feedback

I take pride in going out every night, and you knowing what you're going to get from me every night. I work on my game. I work on my craft. And to know that my numbers are right up there with my MVP seasons, it just lets me know I'm consistent. You can always book me for whatever my numbers say. Sometimes they're more. Not going to be less, not that many times.feedback

That's who I am. I'm a vocal guy. I've been vocal about a lot of things this year.feedback

LeBron Jr. wore 0 for the longest time because he loves Russ. Bryce wore 30 because he likes Steph and likes to shoot the ball from deep. I think that's pretty cool.feedback

Truly blessed. This is a special time for me.feedback

Makes me very happy. Now Melo is. I'm happy about that.feedback

This is the way we wanted to play coming into February and the guys are excellent so far in this month. It sucks because we have a great rhythm right now and you hate to have the break. But the break is going to be good for everybody. It gives guys an opportunity – if they have some nicks and bruises and things of that nature. Just get away and decompress for a little bit, but we've been playing some good basketball.feedback

I turned a corner very, very young. Probably about 16.feedback

The one thing that we can always rely on is the fact that we've played without Kev before. We've had to do that in the playoffs. As much as you don't like to play without some of your big guns, sometimes if it happens then you're just ready for it.feedback

It's been a burden on me since I got drafted. Why does it change now? Nothing's changed. I'll have my guys ready to play every single night.feedback

So then he's going to miss Sunday, which sucks. And he's going to miss eight weeks, which sucks. We've got guys that's ready.feedback

I'll rest when I retire. As long as I'm in the lineup, we've got a chance. We're good. Kev is out for an extended period of time. JR's been out. But I'm in the lineup, obviously we've got a chance against anybody.feedback

He was having that All-Star year and this is where he wanted to get back to after coming from Minnesota a couple years ago. He was an All-Star and obviously he had to fit himself into a different role. We all did. It finally got back to the point where he felt like, validate myself once again in this league.' And then he has an injury again.feedback

It's just our road, every season one of our key guys gets hurt. This year has probably been the worst out of all years, having our starting 2 guard out for so long and then having our All-Star power forward out for an extended period of time. Just next man up. We just hope for a healthy and speedy recovery for our All-Star.feedback

Korver was in a league of his own. When he's open, we've got to get it to him.feedback

We just want to play good basketball and tonight we did that. It started with the defensive end.feedback

It has nothing to do with that. It's just the groove I'm in right now.feedback

We gotta get better. That's all. I'm just trying to win ballgames. That's all that matters.feedback

I have no reaction. We got 14 guys in here. We need to be ready every night. Who we got in here we gotta play. We can't play fantasy basketball. We got who we got and we gotta go out and play.feedback

I not mad or upset at management cause Griff and staff have done a great job, I just feel we still need to improve in order to repeat... If that's what we wanna do.feedback

We're not better than last year, from a personnel standpoint. We're a top-heavy team. ... I just hope we're not satisfied as an organization. We need a (expletive) playmaker. I'm not saying you can just go find one, like you can go outside and see trees. I didn't say that.feedback

I don't know what we got to offer. I just know me, personally. I don't got no time to waste. I'll be 33 in the winter, and I ain't got time to waste.feedback

I think it's that they don't boast and brag about what they accomplish. They're not flashy. They just win and they're consistent over there, but they've done a great job of just going about their business.feedback

I don't think it's a rivalry. It's two great teams that have aspirations. I don't believe I've ever had a rivalry in the NBA.feedback

First thing I told him when he walked in the locker room the other day was, If you want to fit in, shoot the ball every time you get it.feedback

That's the next step. You look at our league, most teams have three point guards. We only have two with Ky (Irving) and our rook in Kay. I think just having that security blanket. Every NFL team has three quarterbacks. We'll see what happens, but, we're happy with our team right now.feedback

A guy that's played at a high level for a long time, has championship aspirations. And he has another rocket launcher.feedback

They'll go higher than that. We're gonna get him the ball. He's on the floor for a reason. We're going to get it to him.feedback

Everybody was just rejoicing in grace and happiness. It was more than I could have ever imagined. It was unforgettable, unbelievable.feedback

To be that dominant in your respective sport, to see what he's been able to do over the years, what he does in that water, man, it's tremendous and very inspiring. When you have that type of tenure to be able to dominate, when you know that the entire competition is gearing up to beat you – and only you – and you're still able to come away No. 1 or always be at the top of the food chain, that's very inspiring.feedback

At that moment, I felt fulfilled. To know the history of our sports here and how heartbreaking at times it was for all those years that our fans had to go through, and the circumstances that we came back from, it was so fulfilling.feedback

He's definitely a person I'm inspired to be like, to have a social conscience about things. What I always saw in Ali was that he was always educated about everything he was speaking about. He was never just talking to be talking. There was a method to the madness. Ali definitely showed me the way.feedback

The kid is special. It was never in doubt.feedback

It lived up to what everyone wanted it to.feedback

The next several years they could be really, really good. For me, I'm ready for whatever matchup. It doesn't matter if it's this year, or if it's several years, I'm going to be ready for it.feedback

I wished he would've changed his mind. I had made three straight 3s. I don't know. It's cool, though. We won.feedback

He came to me and asked me how I felt. I said great. He gave me a little look and I said, I feel great,' and uh, that was it.feedback

Whenever Craig Sager is covering your game, you know it's a big one.feedback

I've played in every arena. My coach wanted to rest us. I'm not going to buck my coach. That's what he wants and that's what we're going to do.feedback

I've been in this league 14 years. I've paid my dues and more than a lot of guys. I've played in every arena. My coach wanted to rest us. I'm not going to buck my coach. That's what he wants and that's what we're going to do.feedback

Anytime I'm mentioned with the other greats, it's very surreal and very humbling.feedback

It's the Kevin Love of old. He's going out and playing his game right now.feedback

As far as health-wise, I'm able to go, but Coach and the training staff have some type of program about me and I'll go with whatever they say.feedback

I'm motivated for the love of the game, I'm motivated by the process, I'm motivated knowing that my kids are watching me tonight on national television. So I don't need much more.feedback

It would be the same if I went to a restaurant and decided to eat chicken and not steak.feedback

We got to get out of the honeymoon stage.feedback

You got to play the game, the right way. We've got to battle every night like we ain't won nothing. Last year is last year. After ring night is over with, now it's a new season and everybody is gunning for us every night and we have to understand that. The honeymoon stage is over. It's time to play some real ball and be physical, especially in the trenches. Giving up 78 points (in the paint) is ridiculous. We've got to man up. Everybody.feedback

I'm not wearing cleats. I got a basketball game to play. No glove. Just the uniform. I will be in uniform.feedback

It's been something that's been in the works for years now. We finally was able to put together a shoe and work with the Nike football lab to put a cleat on there. It's always a hard process when you turn a basketball shoe into a cleat, so we finally was able to find a shoe that fits the Nike lab football cleat.feedback

It was just like, great timing, I guess, that it came together when they were playing Michigan in the biggest game of the season.feedback

That was lightning. We just kept giving him the ball and he kept knocking them down.feedback

His legacy deserves to be studied and revered by every generation.feedback

My whole goal is while I have this platform and this muscle that I have right now is how can I better the youth that looks at me every single day and sees what I do and sees what I say and sees the way I walk and talk and what I wear and use it as a positive way to get out of the situation they're in. I'm not going to be that guy that ever downplays somebody or tries to knock someone off just to feel better about myself.feedback

I've tried to put my guys in position to where they can walk in a meeting and go places and they don't need me because they got to a point where they've done their homework.feedback

They've studied on what they want to do and they can hold a meeting without me because of the respect that they have and the knowledge they have. That's just 12 years of hard work and dedication that we put to each other. I know Phil's in a position of power in our sport, but to criticize me and my guys over that is nonsense.feedback

It seems like when my name is involved with other people that's helped build the game, it's like, How can we criticize what he does on and off the floor?' instead of trying to help me.feedback

They lied to me. They said that Coach (Tyronn) Lue had accomplished something, and they were going to douse him. And I was kind of surprised, like, What happened? You guys are going to mess up his suit. And then ... they rushed me and got all my clothes wet and everything.feedback

Parents and leaders of our children please let them know they can still change the world for the better! Don't lose a bit of faith! They're our future and we must remain stronger than ever!! Yes we all wanna lace up the boots, put on the hard hats and strike but that's not the answer. Love, genuine LOVE and FAITH will be the only thing that can get us through this.feedback

Give them a lot of credit. They played a heck of a game. You know toward the end of the season they'll be right there.feedback

As much as you guys would love to hear [more] from me, I would much rather love to hear from our next president…Hillary Clinton.feedback

Only one person running truly understands the struggles of an Akron child born into poverty.feedback

It's always great to have these kinds of games. We will clean it up. It's a great learning experience for us. I know we have room for improvement.feedback

I think it was a good test for us. It's fun to have games like that throughout the regular season, it sharpens your sword.feedback

Very emotional, man, and our fans deserve everything that they got tonight and everything that's going to come in the future. They've been supportive of all the sports here and especially us, so it's great to have a moment like that.feedback

That's part of my whole mindset is to inspire as many people as I possibly can – from kids growing up in my inner city to professional athletes in our city.feedback

What that guy was saying, I don't know what that is. That's trash talk.feedback

What is locker room talk to me? It's not what that guy said. We don't disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our locker room. That never comes up. Obviously, I got a mother-in-law, a wife, a mom and a daughter and those conversations just don't go on in our locker room.feedback

It's a personal goal. I just never brought it up. It's my own personal goal to be able to be greater than great. I think that should be everybody's personal goal.feedback

We're next up in line. We've given the game all we can give. We're the next crew, so it definitely makes you reflect on everything and you don't take anything for granted. I never do, but in my career I've always been like, Man, this is an unbelievable moment I've been put in.' I try to give as much as I can. But we on deck.feedback

I'm not here to ask anybody else to do any more. Guys have a lot going on. I feel like I'm doing all I can do – and more – to be in my community, to give back to my community, to lend my hand with my foundation with all the kids and just letting them know that there is a brighter tomorrow and America is great. I'm doing as much as I can with these kids who look up to me.feedback

Obviously, I know things don't happen overnight, but it doesn't seem like there is any change. We just want the conversation to continue to be, Who are our leaders? Who are our true leaders that are going to help us change what's going on?' Everyone is looking for that and no one knows.feedback

Let's get J.R. done. It's that time.feedback

I'm coming home with what I said I was going to do. I can't wait to get off that plane, hold that trophy up and see all our fans at the terminal.feedback

I was calm. I was focused. I was locked in.feedback

It feels great. This team is amazing and the vision that I had when I decided to come here is all coming true. Through adversity, everything we have been through, we have been able to persevere and to win back-to-back championships. It's an unbelievable feeling.feedback
