Last quote by Tom Thibodeau

I didn't know what to think going in. When you looked at the numbers, we had a minus-3.6 point differential (in 2015-16). I knew we were not close yet. I didn't know how much of a jump Karl [-Anthony Towns], Andrew [Wiggins] and Zach [LaVine] could make.feedback

The big thing with a guy like Jimmy, he's been around for a while. So when you look at the relationships he has in the league -- the fact that he's played All-Star, the fact that he's been an Olympian -- those guys get to know each other and there's friendships. Then those guys are always looking around to say, OK, where might I fit best?' I think what we have here is very attractive to other players. ... Whatever relationships he has, if those players are looking for places to play, hopefully we'll have a good shot at them.feedback

The way he worked, that's what makes him so special. Obviously, you can't do the things that he's done without a lot of talent, but it's his drive and his intelligence. He's never lost that. He's chased excellence from the day he got in the league to where we are today, and I think that's a great example.feedback

The longer you are with somebody, the more deposits you have with each other, the trust is there. You're not afraid to tell them the truth. So I think I know him well. I know the things that are important to him. I know he wants to win. And he wants to win big.feedback

The most important thing to me are the things he does every day, the way he practices, the things that he does in meetings, the way he prepares before a game, the things that he does for recovery. He'll show our players a lot of the things that he's learned along the way.feedback

You can't overlook Kevin Durant being out. Where are they going to go when they get him back? The depth of the team, you can't replace a guy like Kevin individually. You do that with your team and their team play has been phenomenal, so they're getting the best out of everybody.feedback

It was too much risk. And you can't take that chance. It was the right decision.feedback

When it's slippery, you're always concerned. When a player goes down, that's hard to live with. So you don't want to put players in that position.feedback

I'd like to apologize to our fans and certainly to the Trail Blazers. Obviously the safety of the players has to come first. It's unfortunate, but it's the right thing to do.feedback

I'm glad Ronnie Garretson was here. He's a great referee, but he's also a great decision maker. He's been with the league a long time and the safety has to come first.feedback

I have to make sure they understand it better and I have to do better.feedback

He's done a lot more than just be a dunker: his shooting, his playmaking, all that stuff. But the big thing is weighing whether the rest is more important to be ready for the second half of the season. So I don't want him putting a lot of time and thought into that. I want him thinking about what we have to do tonight. ... Prioritizing winning and our team is the most important thing and I think he'll do that.feedback

In pro sports ... that's not unusual. And I felt like injuries had a lot to do with us not reaching where we may have been able to go. But I felt that we dealt with it as best we could, and I was very proud of the team and all the things that we accomplished.feedback
