Tyronn Lue quotes
We are going to do it. We are the champs, we do have a great team and we have the (fourth) best record in the NBA right now so we got to play like it.
For me, LeBron James, the best player in the world, took a team that was worse to the NBA Finals two years ago. We have a good team. We just have to start playing better as a unit. No excuses.
For me, you always want to try to improve the team whether you're great or not. Golden State won 73 games last year and they added Kevin Durant. You always want to get better and when you see teams getting better as a competitor you want to get better. But we have enough on this team to win a championship. We can get better. I know Griff is going to make us better and he's going to do the best he can.
Maybe Pop has it in his contract to fly under the radar. They're good every year.
Of course you want to play well. It's Christmas, everyone is locked in and everybody is watching, you have the last two champs against each other so it's going to be a good game, but it's not like if we beat Golden State or they beat us it's seven wins in the win column.
In practice (Friday), he looked really good, had a lot of pop, was moving around well. There will probably come another time where he's going to need a little rest also. Right now, he's feeling good and that's the biggest thing for me.
It was pretty much the circumstance. It wasn't like, we're coming to Memphis; we're going to sit our guys.
It's a tribute to his hard work and his dedication.
It's not normal, but considering the circumstances that's what we have. But that's not my main objective. My main thing is to try to get this team to stay on track and play the right way and try to get back on track by playing Cleveland Cavalier basketball.
To get 34 points on this team, it says a lot. The thing I liked the most was when he got going, our guys really looked for him.
We treat everyone the same around here.
A lot of guys were humbled by the experience. When you get a chance to meet the President of the United States – and he knows your first name and last name, and knows your stats and how you play and who you are as a person – it just means a lot.
He's very physical. Sometimes he demands double-teams if he gets deep in the paint. He's going to drive fouls on your big men. They also have a shot blocker.
We were tested tonight. Overall, I'm pleased to come out with a win when we had some adversity.
If they win it, we've got to come back and win it again, too.
For him to internalize it this whole time without saying anything to anyone is tough.
Every time I see those last plays, guys celebrating and crying, it just sends chills through my body. I'm pretty sure that on opening night it's going to be even more than that. It's going to be an emotional night, I know that and I'm going to enjoy it also. It's going to be one of those nights. It's a great night. Who wouldn't want to be in that position as an NBA player or NBA coach? It's going to be a great night for us.
I'm probably going to cry again.
That was one of the best moments I experienced this summer.
I don't know why, but they do come up to me and thank me. We're champs and they carry themselves like that and rightfully so.
We made history tonight. Cleveland, Ohio, we're coming back, baby!
