It was Chinese music. I couldn't understand it, but it had a good beat to it.
At the end of the day, what brought me back here was my players, the guys I've played with. That meant to me more than anything.
The guys that we have potentially may or may not be here next year. Organizationally, if our chances are slim to make the playoffs, we have to focus on who is going to be here in the future. It seems like a logical move. Our young guys have been playing well. It does get frustrating when you feel like you have to play for next season.
I am all for it. I think it does make my job a lot easier. I have been around long enough; 20 points for me is easy to come by. I have to be more efficient, making sure Swift gets the ball and forcing him to play.
The teams that do the best job of putting personal agendas aside are the successful teams. It's not easy. That's why it's hard being a good teammate, but everyone has that choice.
People decide if they want to be led, they'll be led. If they decide they don't want to be part of the system, they'll buck it.
We have to focus on the next (few) games before the deadline. Our production is ultimately going to decide what decision we need to or don't need to make.
You've got players that can really put the ball in the basket and they went on a run on us. You think the game is pretty much over with, but in the NBA teams can go on runs. I don't know how it happened.
