Sometimes a player's greatest challenge is coming to grips with his role on the team.
Davis will give us some toughness inside and Williams has a lot of energy and enthusiasm,.. We got veteran guys who know how to play the game. I think it should make us better.
We're going to work on it,.. He wants to be good. He's always shown signs of being very talented and able to do a lot of things on a basketball court a man of his size usually can't do.
It's hard to put it in perspective right now. I'm starting to feel a little emotional about what's going to happen Friday night. Getting your number put in the rafters is always something that as a kid.. You dream of seeing happen to you.
It's going to be great. A lot of the players are coming. I wasn't here when they put (Jackson) up in the rafters. But to have him here as my number goes up, it brings back a lot of great memories.
It [would have] been very difficult. As I said, the rules.. But if the rules were put in place back when Michael Jordan was in his prime -- no hand-checking, the game was more geared toward offense, wanting to promote scoring in the game -- he could have probably got close. He did score 69.
He's very knowledgeable. That's the one advantage that I see in Kobe Bryant's career compared to Michael Jordan. Ten years into Kobe Bryant's career, we're seeing a very polished 27-year-old player who's probably got another seven or eight great years ahead of him.
It's superb, definitely. Something that is new to me, that is shocking. I got the news last night about 3 in the morning, and I don't think I even went back to bed.
I wouldn't want to face the Bulls in the playoffs. They could be trouble.
I probably should've listened to MICHAEL a year ago when HE SAID that Charles will never win a championship because he doesn't show any dedication
