PJ: We're impressed with Dallas. They're still coming together as a team; they haven't gotten everything figured out yet. And with [Kenyon] Martin back on the floor, Denver has got a real potent eight-man group. They're a highly volatile team—they can run off a lot of points quickly, and they can also fall into malaise, too, at times.
When will you decide if you're coming back next season?
PJ: The end of the year, obviously. The success or failure of the team is related to that.
So if you're in the Finals, you're more than likely returning?
PJ: There's a good chance of it.
And if you don't make the Finals....
PJ: I'd have to think long and hard about it, because I think we only have five guys coming back off this roster.
Have you given thought to going out on top and retiring as a champion?
PJ: I hold that option. That's for sure.
