I'm definitely not the caliber player that LeBron is, but I find it funny how people can criticize him and the way he plays the game. So it's pretty easy to criticize me if they are still able to criticize LeBron.
I pray to my mother before every game. She passed away when I was 9, but I always consider her my wings on the floor, my extra step, my extra focus, my extra everything, to watch over me when I'm on the court. It takes some pressure off you when you feel like you have your mother above watching you. And I always pray to God for guidance.
Being in the city of New Orleans, meeting the people, it's been nothing but hospitality and a lot of love.
I've had a lot of struggles in the NBA, so to have some type of success, it just feels good, and makes you want more.
For as long as I remember, big men have dominated the NBA.
When you're friends with somebody, it's really easy to tell them 'Help me do this; help me do that.' It's not an uncomfortable conversation.
That's always been my interest - things of the unknown.
I didn't think I was going to be doubled my first NBA game. I knew it would happen eventually, but I got off to a hot start, so as a result, I got double-teamed.
I've always been a basketball player. My earliest memories are of playing basketball. I was born playing it. It's why I'm so comfortable on the floor.
My goal is to be the best. That's my thing I want to achieve - the best that I can be - and hopefully, that's the best player in the NBA.
I became a better talker on the floor, being at Duke, being in leadership with Coach K, and I think I got better defensively as the season progressed.
People in New Orleans have been so supportive of me and the team. I love walking around here, because the people have been great.
Shaquille O'Neal was probably my favorite athlete growing up. I loved how dominant and unstoppable he was, but also his charisma off the court. He was someone I gravitated toward.
My rookie season, I wore 8 because I had wanted 15, but it's retired in Philadelphia. I had worn 15 in college.
In college, when you lose one game as a top team, it's like the end of the world.
I'm a big fan of black uniforms.
Chicago is home for me.
My aunt, who plays the role of my mother now, she got her Ph.D.
My father has his master's degree. My uncle does as well.
I wasn't always a willing passer.
