MJ: Oh, yes. I had to tell the guys during a timeout I don't need a choir of "my bads." Every time they come over, "My bad, Coach, my bad." That's not what I'm looking for. Find a way to get it done.
DP: You also beat the Cavaliers. What do you think of rookie Kyrie Irving?
MJ: He's going to be a special basketball player. He plays with extreme confidence. There's no question he's going to be a top five point guard in this league for a long time to come.
DP: Michael Jordan thinks Kobe Bryant deserves to be compared to him. But only Kobe. You said that years ago.
MJ: People thought I was crazy. That's a heck of a compliment coming from Michael Jordan. They're clearly the two best shooting guards to ever play the game. They both have the mentality that they're willing to die on the court.
DP: Did Jordan talk trash to you?
DP: What did he say?
MJ: "You can't guard me." That's not trash talk. That's a fact.
DP: How about Kobe?
