You just have to give Dallas the credit. They have a good team. They have been playing well this season. They ran into a team that has not been playing well, and trying to learn things that they are doing. At this point, it didn't show.

He was counting. All I heard him say was ,'One one-thousand,' but I think he forgot the other four.

It probably wasn't the prettiest game you'll see but at least we gave the effort.

Winning is the cure all. Sometimes when you're losing things aren't as bad as they seem. Sometimes when you're winning things are not as good. It's only one game but hopefully it's something we can build on.

Even bad teams have optimism. You don't want to take away the optimism so early in the season. The Bad News Bears coach wouldn't even tell (his team) that.

It's good to see Chris Bosh show some intensity. I told him in the locker room he's growing some hair on his chest. Hopefully they will start giving him the respect he deserves and he will definitely be an all-star this year.

Just because I got traded doesn't mean we'll be able to compete with the Spurs and the Pistons right away.

I would have been totally surprised had it not been a team that had been speculated practically since the Vince Carter trade. Everybody understands Toronto's actively in a rebuilding mode.

We've got a lot of guys in here that are learning how to win. And when you're learning that on the fly over an 82-game schedule, you're going to have some tough times.
