My fire is my gift and my curse. I harness it 95% of the time, but the 5% I don't, it works against me.

Some suggestions for you :

If you put junk into your body, your body is going to give you junk results.

I'm going to be more critical of myself than anyone could ever be.

I have the mindset of a mid-level guy or a minimum guy. My path here wasn't expected: my path wasn't that I was going to the NBA and making $16 million a year. So I identify more with those guys, and I want to be a voice for them. I want to help them elevate their status in the league. That's my goal.

I see the game differently than some guys. I'm always reading the next move.

Everything can't be sweet. Everything can't be peaches and cream.

I've gotten to the point where I'm comfortable guarding any position on the floor. It just didn't happen overnight. It came with a lot of work, a lot of film study and everything.

I've never been a guy who has said 'OK' about stuff. That's not me. That's not my personality. If I think something's wrong, I express that.

No matter what, no matter how I feel, always bring effort.

A guy who's not a champion can't talk too much about championships, can he?

I grew up in a household where my mom made $16,000 a year. I know the struggle. I know how to keep those things in perspective, and I do keep it into perspective.

I will not feel like I've made it until the day I retire from basketball because there's something that I can always get better at, and there's always somebody better, and that's what drives me.

There is no chip coming off of my shoulder because, at the end of the day, you're still going to continue to be doubted.

My uncle, my dad always made sure I had guard skills. But as far as defending everybody, that wasn't really my mindset until my rookie year.

If you've got to second-guess talking to a teammate, what you have will never work.
