We don't see ourselves as four All-Stars. We see ourselves as one unit. It's like five fingers on a hand. You can do more damage together as a fist than spread out flat.

Go for it, Darko!

Keep us on the back-burner. We won't lose our swagger at all, because when you put that food on the back-burner, it's just simmering and it tastes better. When you got that food on the front burner, that's the one you're paying attention to the most, and that's the one that might burn. We're on that back-burner.

That's our main food that feeds this team.

It's still too early to say what we're gonna look like and what we're gonna to do.

If it happens, it happens. It's monumental that four from one organization are here. That's good for the organization. If he does put all four of us out there together, it'll be cool.
