DP: After everything Miami did, I still like you guys to win the championship.
KB: Oh, good. Thank you. We'll have a different team than we did last year. We made some pretty significant additions—obviously not as explosive as what they did in Miami. We're happy with bringing in Matt [Barnes], [Steve] Blake and Theo [Ratliff].
DP: How tough is it to bring in someone who was a nemesis, maybe someone you jawed with, like Matt?
KB: It's easy for me. It's all about competition. You want guys who are competitive. You don't want guys who quit or roll over. You can't win a championship with those guys. It's fun for me to have Matt here. And Blake as well. Blake and I have had our battles. It makes practice more interesting.
DP: When's the last time the word retirement came up in conversation?
KB: Last night, when I said I was going to retire to bed early.
DP: Well done. What about your career?
KB: This is the first time.
DP: Right now, this is the first time you've talked about retirement.
KB: This is a first.
