#Quote
1I was just a big fan of tattoos always growing up, and I wanted something cool that symbolizes what I've been through in my life, and everything on my chest and my back is like a collage.
2When people are used to you doing something, they want you to stay in that lane.
3I Tweeted Keri Hilson the other day and she actually wrote back! I was so excited.
4I like women's basketball.
5I always want to win because I never want to sit out on the sidelines outside.
6I feel good doing it. It's not like guys are stripping me at half-court or I'm just losing the ball dribbling. I think I'm handling the ball pretty well, just trying to make good passes, man.
7The clothes are not making me... If I like it, that's all that matters...It's not about the clothes. It's about how I am as a person and how confident I am.
8My acting coach I've got here, Richard Lawson, he's been doing good, just telling me to calm down sometimes and just be me.
9I feel as though I've proved myself these last five years that I can be one of the top players in the league.
10I'm an old-school type of guy.
11I've just got to let my teammates know in practice, without even telling them, that I don't think I'm ahead of anybody.
12I'm just trying to grow. That's one thing I told myself is, 'Don't worry about who people say is the best player.'
13You hear all these stories about, 'There's one in a million guys that make it to the NBA and stay there.' To see people cheering for me and when they say my name, it's just crazy. It's still crazy to me.
14I'm not a guy that's going to brag or feel like I'm better than the group.
15I would describe my style as off the wall. I like stuff that doesn't match. I just like to stand out.
16Everything has been such a whirlwind ever since I stepped foot in the league and everything has been like a dream, so I'm just blessed to be in this position.
17My mom just wants to make sure that my heart is always in whatever I do and I'm in things for the right reasons.
18I can score the basketball, but I think I can pass pretty well or I can make the correct pass. I'm not the type of guy who's just going to throw the ball inbounds to a guy who's wide open. I can make the right pass.
19My time is now.
20I look at my jersey and see the NBA logo, I'm like, 'I didn't think I'd be here.'
21I've heard a few times, in three or four years, this league is going to be yours. I don't like that. Because I think I'm established now.
22People always think women meet us in the hotel lobby, but it's the opposite. The majority of the time, you go out to eat with your teammates, then rest for the next day's game. It's not a vacation - most guys view the road as a business trip.
23You know, I think more people should watch women's basketball. It'd do so much for the game.
24I like something simple and traditional, like dinner and a movie. The best way to get to know someone is to have a conversation over dinner. And steak houses have a nice atmosphere - the lights are dim, and they usually have a band playing.
25I learned how to pass when I was real young. That's one thing I always knew how to do was find the open man.
26I'm a basketball player. That's what I do and what I love but that's just not all who I am. I'm talented in a lot of different areas.
27Every memory I had growing up was involving a basketball. I didn't go to the prom and stuff like that. It was always basketball for me.
28I don't know what I'm going to do tomorrow. I just know for sure I'm going to keep playing basketball.
29I'm busy working on every aspect of my game - defense, shooting, rebounding - but I really want to become a better overall team player. Help my teammates become better players out on the court in order to win more ball games.
30My style has changed and evolved mainly because I've grown to have more confidence in myself.
31You know, I don't want to stand out too much.
32I just loved being in the gym. It was tough at times. Sometimes I wanted to quit, but I'm glad I stuck with it.
33With everything I do, I just try to be myself.
34I just want to grow spiritually with the Lord. I'm keeping strong at it, just trying to make my walk with faith a little better.
35I've got a long way to go to being the ultimate best, but I think my time is now. And I'm starting to enter my prime.
