It's just a wonderful feeling.
Raymond would come by and see me covered in sweat, and I wasn't working in the day; I was working all night, ... He'd come in and he'd just shake his head. But he knew I had to work. He knew it had to be done.
With my dad, he's just working so hard to take care of me and give me all the things I needed or wanted, ... It feels good just to tell them they can be done with all that stuff and do whatever they want. Relax. Get up when they want to. It's emotional, a very touching thing.
I'm not backing down from what I said, regardless of who says whatever about it.
There's no beef between us, ... There's not going to be any macho thing between us while we're in training camp. We're just coming into training camp trying to make our team better.
I'm not backing down from what I said. I wasn't saying (it) to be bold or to be cocky. I was saying it because I have confidence in my team and my teammates. That's the mentality that I'm trying to bring to this team.
That's my man. He always told me: 'You're a winner,' and to always play with confidence when I go out there.
My friends and I are blessed to escape this accident with only minor injuries, and thankfully I was wearing my seat belt.
We were staying in the game, but when (Jefferson) got hot, he spread the lead. They took it up to 15 and 18. We'd cut it back down but he'd come down and hit two big threes. He had it going tonight. We had no answer for him. We played great defense, and he still was hitting it.
This showed if we don't take care of the ball against really good teams, we're not going to be successful.
I was upset [at halftime], ... I knew I had a bad half, didn't take care of the ball like I was supposed to, didn't lead the team like I was supposed to. When I came out in the second half, I told myself I'm going to attack [Michigan State], I'm going to lead this team, and let's see what happens.
We all dreamed about this moment, just to be able to give back to your mom and dad.
