I feel good. I am just trying to work hard, stay in shape, and I cannot wait until I feel like I did before.

My expectation is to practice hard. I'm back to being a freshman in college. I'll make those guys' life a little bit tough in practice. I want to go out there and do the dirty work.

I'm feeling great. I'm feeling fantastic. I'm alive, ... I'm working out every day. I'm just doing everything I can to be on the basketball court, so I'm doing good.

My body was asking me to play basketball, but for now I don't run and I don't shoot.

We don't really care about the seeding. We're just trying to play hard, ... We just try to look at ourselves and don't worry about the seed we've got. We're focused on ourselves and what we can do, who we are.

I think I'm like the Chad Johnson of basketball.

He's awesome. First and foremost, he's a great person and a great teammate. He's very supportive when I get down on myself. (All of our veterans) have been successful professionals for a long time. I tell you, even if you had success in college, you have to listen to them.

I want to be back tomorrow.

But I am confident and determined to show everyone that a player can come back from a heart operation. I will play basketball again.
