Personal Quotes (4)

[About biggest lesson learned with Coach Larry Brown] "He's taught me to think the game a lot more out there, to be more cerebral when I'm playing as opposed to just playing off instinct. He teaches me how to be two steps ahead. He's really been good for me. He was a point guard. He played professional so he's been through some of these things and he's played at the highest level. I've learned a lot from him."
[on how Richard Hamilton said that nobody else on the team could beat him] "Oh my goodness, Rip's not telling the truth. There's no way Rip could beat me one-on-one."
[on one player he'd like to play one on one] "I'd probably have to say Pistol Pete Maravich. He just has so many tricks. He was unbelievable."
I think the Denver Nuggets are really surprising some people. You know, that Western Conference is a very, very tough conference and I think they'll make the playoffs. I don't know that they'll go far, but I think just them making the playoffs is an amazing feat after winning seventeen games last year.
