KB: It's fine to be nervous. Having that panic button drives you—as opposed to just writing it off and saying it will turn around.
DP: Do you have your sights on Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's scoring record [of 38,387 points]?
KB: I don't know about that, bro.
DP: How about Michael at 32,292?
KB: Depends on how many years I have left. Last season was tough for me. It was the first time in the off-season I didn't know if I wanted to train as hard. One morning I woke up and the desire was there and off I went. It's tough when you get to 17 years with no breaks.
DP: How is your role different under Mike D'Antoni than it was under Mike Brown?
KB: I do a lot more ball handling right now because the Gatsby is out.
DP: You're obviously talking about Steve Nash. What do you think of his haircut?
KB: It's working for him. I used to see him when he was injured in Phoenix and he dressed like a trucker. Now he wears three-piece suits, a little hanky in the pocket. He went full-blown Great Gatsby.
