Personal Quotes (3)

I want to apologize for my offensive comments against the LGBT community. These remarks were taken from a larger interview where a reporter was asking me hypothetical questions, and all my answers had a comedic undertone. The answers I gave were meant to be taken as jokes & I am deeply sorry for offending anyone. I am open to creating a dialogue to assist the fight the LGBT community encounters daily and will continue focus on playing basketball
I'm actually very proud of my career. In my career, I've had some ups and downs. But I'm thankful that what I put into this game helped me achieve what I was able to accomplish. Hopefully, that gives me a bid into the Hall of Fame. That was my goal as a teenager, was to become a Hall of Famer. That's what I'm still striving for.
[after announcing his retirement from the Israeli Basketball Premier League]Although I would have liked to return for another season, the team, coach and I could not find a role that I felt would allow me to meaningfully contribute in the way I have always been accustomed to play. I feel it is my time now to return to the shareholder's position and help make this team even better. I would like to thank Hapoel Jerusalem president Ori Allon and the entire Hapoel Jerusalem organization for giving me the opportunity to retire as a champion, and doing it in the holiest of cities made it even more special
