When you win a championship, it is a great feeling, and you really don't want that feeling to go away.

Everybody knows how much I disliked the Knicks when I was with the Celtics, but I think it's grown to another level.

At the beginning of the season, I set my goal to see if I can lead the league in scoring, because I feel I have that kind of ability. A lot of guys say it, but it's not really in their grasp. I feel that's really in my grasp.

In college, I probably lost a total of about 11 games, and then I came to the Celtics and in my first three weeks we went on a nine-game losing streak.

It's crazy how people just don't care sometimes about the kids they have.

I've been around this game for a long time - a lot of plane rides, a lot of bus rides, a lot of pregame speeches, a lot of national anthems.

I've always been known as a pure scorer, and I've always said if I just sat outside and shot 3s and just really focused on that - coming off of screens and spot-up 3s - and shot six or seven 3s a game, I would probably be more known as one of the greatest shooters in NBA history.

A lot of people don't know this: when I was young, I wanted to be a garbage man. I asked my mom, and she said they made good money, and it was steady work.

When you play on bad defensive teams, you get labeled as a bad defender.

A lot of players know I've been around 13 years and this is my second lockout. I got a lot of respect. I know what's going on both for the league and the union.

When you go against the best... a lot of series are won on fear factor or the non-belief. When you have that non-belief, then you have no chance.

The NBA is changing so much. It's not like when I came up, with that old-school mentality that practice really mattered.

I have an opinion. I have a right to have one, and that's the way I feel.

If somebody said, 'You're going to be the Number 1 pick; you're going to have a great team around you all these years'? It would've been too easy.

These seasons, as you get older, they just are so long and draining.

That is one of my greatest strengths. I am not afraid to face challenges or any matchup in the league.

I knew I wasn't going to be a scientist; I knew that early. When they started talking about dissecting frogs, I knew I wasn't going to be a scientist.

I respect LeBron. People think we have a hate for each other, but I totally respect what he's done.

If I see LeBron walking down the street, it's not going to be no fistfight. I've got a lot of respect for him.

The rim is looking bigger and bigger every game.

My strength comes from my mom. Just seeing what she had to go through to raise us, she wouldn't make excuses; she wouldn't put her head down. So I guess I looked at adversity right in the eye and took it on.

I think I've had an illustrious career.

Dislike is what creates rivalries.

What people don't understand is the summertime is motivation - how willing you're willing to work for the upcoming season - and I think, as older players, once you see that drive fall off in the summer, then I think it's time to hang it up.

LeBron is a great post-up player, but if you get him to settle for the jumper on some nights, you might be able to slow him down if his shot is off.

The '80s, '90s, and early 2000s genes of competitive fire are dead and gone.

My brother was a huge Charles Barkley fan - my brother went to Miami. He played power forward, and he always used to tell me stories about Barkley and college. And I watched Barkley growing up. I loved what he brought to the game. His toughness and just his attitude, being as strong he was.

A lot of people that I've had around me have been my closest friends since junior high, back when we were exchanging each other's clothes, staying at each other's houses. That was before I had anything.

'Pulp Fiction' is my favorite movie of all time.

Good things only can last so long.

I think you're a product of your influences, your environment. You see guys with so much talent, but they got the wrong people around them telling them the wrong things. They wind up going down the wrong path.

You can actually get calls by yelling, 'And one!' as you release.

The Celtics don't celebrate anything but championships.

The gym was my sanctuary. The place where you could forget about all your worries, your problems, people asking you for money, people asking you to do this, do that.

If they're not talking about you, you're not doing something; you're not doing anything. So if they're talking about you, you may be doing something right. And when they talk bad about you, you just use it for motivation.

Understanding who you are is saying, 'You're great; you have tons of confidence, and don't ever forget that.' And that helped me, man. Because when things weren't going right, I thought, 'You've got to remember who you are. Don't stray from that. Don't let these things get you down.'

The media in Utah is not the same as the media in New York, so that can wear on some people.

I really don't use a personal trainer.

I'm a competitive person. I love the game of basketball. I'm a gym rat.

I'm the classic case of a great player on a bad team, and it stinks.

Mostly I play sports games - football and basketball. 'Inside Drive' and 'NFL Fever.'

When you've been around the game so much for so many years, it's just like it's a part of you.

You know coaches. Sometimes they ramble.

'A Christmas Story' is my favorite Christmas movie.

I majored in criminal justice. I like 'CSI,' all that, '24.' I watch those shows on A&E, if I watch TV. I don't really watch TV shows.

Kids are the most genuine thing to me: everything they say and do, they mean it.

I've got three beautiful kids that wear me out after I get home from practice. I think that's a good thing so I'm able to get my rest.

I'm happy I'm able to leave a legacy behind. I'm happy I was able to win a championship. I have no regrets about nothing.

I take the opportunity 3s, and I think I'm one of the better shooters.
