On fallout from the Kobe incident
I didn't think it would spiral out of control, with everyone talking about Raja this and Raja that. But it kept growing and growing until I had to turn off the TV and stop reading the papers. It was really too much for me.
On playing with MVP Steve Nash
He makes so many plays that it makes it easy for anyone offensively. And he's such a great, under-control player that I pick his brain: "If you were in this situation, what would you do" and so forth. He'll always sit down with me and others. He's a great teacher.
On meeting his wife of two years, Cindy
She played soccer at Florida International, where I went, and one of her roommates dated one of my teammates. One day they walked up to our car and she caught my eye, so I asked everyone who she was. They said she was spoken for, but I gave it a little time and we worked it out. I proposed when we were on our way to a wedding. I was giving her a corsage. I dropped it on the floor and just didn't come up. She looked down and, what do you know, I was proposing.
