#Quote
1With the way everything's going now and the way that technology is going, you can do a lot of things with a lot of different new materials.
2I'm really into fashion.
3I wanted to make the lightest shoe possible, but still be able to perform at the same time.
4Who wouldn't want to go back home to play?
5I like having fun.
6I told my mom I would graduate. I owe that much to her and myself.
7It's easier for me to let the game just come to me.
8Denver is home to me, and to be recognized for my achievements in the sports community here is a great honor.
9Of course I want to take the last shot, let's be quite frank: I've been doing for nine years already, and I've made a ton of them.
10The NBA's a Fortune 500 company. That's how you look at it. And all the other Fortune 500 companies out there in the world, you don't see their CEOs and COOs going to work with white tees and baggy clothes and stuff like that. So I have to take that same approach.
11Life is a risk.
12It's too late for me to get married before I'm famous. You never know people's intentions.
13I've been at the funerals of a lot of people in my neighborhood. Sometimes when I sit back and relax, I think about that and just blank out.
14I think people fail to realize that teams and organizations have been stacking teams since way back in the day.
15I'm a classical type of guy. Whatever's out at that point in time, I like it. I just put my own twist on it, and we go from there.
16I just want to get on the court.
17Any decision I make is the biggest decision of my life.
18I think going to college for that one year was probable the best thing I have ever done.
19I can't palm a basketball.
20I can't worry about what other people are saying about me. At the end of the day, it's just their opinions, but if I said I don't hear it, or it doesn't bother me a little bit, I'd be lying to you.
21I believe that you should put the right people around you, people that will not let anything go wrong.
22People look at me like I'm on my way out of the game. I'm just getting started.
23Leadership is something I was born with.
24When I step on that basketball court, I'm thinking about basketball, I'm thinking about winning - but there's so much that goes into thought about how I'm going to open this game up to others. It's so much more than just basketball.
25Man, I'm not trying to be important; I just go out and play.
26I think everybody has their own unique style.
27At the end of the day, you want to be always the one that's one step ahead of everybody, and when it comes to hip-hop, culture and art, you want to be that signature guy.
28What I do will be straight up. Management knows that.
29I know I'm not a selfish player. People around me know I'm not a selfish player. I do everything I can to make people around me understand I'm not a selfish player.
