I've been shooting the ball and running a little bit. It's just going out here now and forgetting that I've been out and try to get back in and make sure I know what's going on out there on the floor and that we're just not lost as a team.
I didn't go in there and tell them I think you should move me, but I also understand the nature of this business.
I don't think I'll be playing again. I'm very content and happy, doing the types of things I haven't gotten to do, be a father.
I have to be a father first and a husband first.
It's fool's gold if you are winning games and are not playing the right way.
If these are the last 34 games of my NBA career, I want them played as tough as I can.
I actually think some of the rappers can help our image, because the thing I'm concerned about is the NBA's image. I always want our image to be on the rise, and if the rappers can help young players get business-minded, then I'm all for it.
I hope the business sense that artists like Jay-Z and Nelly are showing rubs off on the young players. I want somebody to stand up and say, Look, these kids got it going on. We want to be a part of them.
When I look at our roster, I'm sure all of you have printed that I'm coming up on 35, and given my situation and my salary structure and all that, yeah, I have to wonder if this team is going to make moves and they haven't.
I meet a lot of people.
I'm not apologizing to anybody for anything.
I'm still doing something I love to do.
I've never had a chance to go to the Finals, and I don't have a ring - and that would be the only thing that would get me to think about it.
If you're going to trade me, trade me. Whenever they are going to do, let them do it so I can situated.
As of right now, I have no desire. I've watched several games and played pickup ball thinking I'd have the feeling I'd like to get back, but I didn't have that feeling. I don't really miss the game.
