No matter what the opponent is, you can’t let them win, unless that is your role. You can’t stay in another team’s face if you’re going to beat them. That’s really the key for me, to know the game, knowing who is playing well. My job is to see how I can get good shots for my teammates, and for me to continue to make shots. I’m going to continue to do that.

You keep trying to prove me wrong and people are going to keep saying the wrong thing, so why can’t I go and put an end to it? If I really got mad, I wouldn’t be playing anymore.
