I always forget what city we're in by the end of a trip. I've forgotten what room I'm in a couple of times. I never know what day it is. I'm always glad when it ends.

This is my time to show them I'm ready. Last year I was nervous and didn't have confidence in myself because I was in a whole different environment. Now I've been here for a year, I had a chance to get out there in a couple of games and I know what's going on.

It's disappointing that I won't be able to dress, but I've still got to wait my turn. That's just how it is. If I made the rules, it wouldn't be like that.

I'm fine with it. It's just giving me a better opportunity. I can get out there and showcase my skills.

Once training camp comes I've got to get in there and lock down, defend, all that. I have to show [Van Gundy] everything. I'm willing to do that, because I've been waiting a year, and I'm tired of watching. I don't want to be a spectator. I felt more of a fan instead of a player because I wasn't out there, and I wasn't used to anything like that.
