It's hard -- they shouldnt have even made that.
You've got to get used to it. He said you need a great point guard to be a great team. I just take that into consideration that he wants me to be great. They don't call me Nate the Great for nothing. I've got to live up to the name and live up to the expectations that he wants. He's hard on me and I love it.
It was a little crazy for the first couple of days, ... I couldn't really talk. I checked in, and in 20 minutes, I was at the dentist. I had to tell the guys, 'My tooth is messed up -- I'll talk to you in a few days.' I got it pulled, and now it's back to normal.
Even though it was a negative thing that happened, I wasn't feeling too bad, 'cause a positive thing came out of it, ... I don't fault Miami for anything; I'm just here at Rutgers, at home, where I'm happy.
They say sharing is caring, and we care about each other. There's just a lot of good karma going around.
I just knew if I get it up high enough I would have a good chance of making it, ... So I just shot it hard and let it go.
We're like family. We enjoy each other's company off the court. And it doesn't feel crowded on the court. You just have to find who's hot at the right time.
I didn't make the right play.
It was just weird. Once you get the ball and you get in a situation, it's like haywire, everything goes crazy, and everybody's running around. You don't know who to pass it to or what to do. So Coach said just slow down and just make the right play. I tried to get the best look I could at the basket.
He was under me, and I was trying to fall. So, when I grabbed his arm, I was trying to push him out of the way.
I wanted it. I'm still waiting for that first dunk at the Garden.
Coach just said, 'Get a hand up,' and I was right there. I just stayed in front and backed him up, and he took a desperation three. But he made a good shot.
Now I've probably got to be more aggressive and pick up where [Marbury] left off, but I'm just going to take it how it comes. I'm not going to force it. I'm going to let the game come to me.
It seemed like they could look at each other and not call a play and know exactly what play they're running. They are so poised.
This is the first active thing I've been doing since I hurt my knee, ... The coaches made out a big plan for me, with rehab, strength and conditioning. I'll be ready for the first Big East game [vs. Virginia Tech on Oct. 4].
He played like he has been in the league for 10 years.
[Conroy and Robinson are the Pac-10's No. 1 and No. 3 assist men, respectively, and their generosity has created a surprising leading scorer in Simmons, an underexposed sharpshooter who stepped into the starting lineup while Roy was recovering from a meniscus tear in his right knee.] We're like family. We enjoy each other's company off the court, ... And it doesn't feel crowded on the court. You just have to find who's hot at the right time.
He's got me by 25 [137 to 112] right now; for two players on one team to have 100-some assists, that's crazy.
He played like a veteran. Like he's been in the league 10 years. It's tough dealing with guys that are so free to pick and choose what to do whenever they want.
It seems like a letdown to us because we come out and work so hard, and things aren't going our way or according to plan. It's just something we have to fight through, come in every day knowing we have to win a lot of games to make a playoff run. I believe we can do it.
I'm pretty far along, but I still got a long way to go. Coach says I have to take it in steps and it's something I'm learning to do every day, just come in and pay attention more and more to details, the little things I can do to make myself better.
This is something I dream about. Hopefully, kids go out there and one day want to be like me. Hopefully I can just go out there and just send a message to some of these kids that, even though you're small, you can mean so much more to yourself and your friends and family and to people all across the world.
It's a great honor to be in my shoes right now.
When people look at me, they really don't understand where the hops are coming from.
I have charisma and a lot of energy and I hope that the crowd can see that. All I can do is hope so (that the crowd will get behind me). If not, then I will have to steal the crowd away from someone else. If that happens, that is what I am going to have to do.
