Of course I want to take the last shot, let's be quite frank: I've been doing for nine years already, and I've made a ton of them.
I've been at the funerals of a lot of people in my neighborhood. Sometimes when I sit back and relax, I think about that and just blank out.
It's too late for me to get married before I'm famous. You never know people's intentions.
I believe that you should put the right people around you, people that will not let anything go wrong.
I can't worry about what other people are saying about me. At the end of the day, it's just their opinions, but if I said I don't hear it, or it doesn't bother me a little bit, I'd be lying to you.
The NBA's a Fortune 500 company. That's how you look at it. And all the other Fortune 500 companies out there in the world, you don't see their CEOs and COOs going to work with white tees and baggy clothes and stuff like that. So I have to take that same approach.
People look at me like I'm on my way out of the game. I'm just getting started.
I'm a classical type of guy. Whatever's out at that point in time, I like it. I just put my own twist on it, and we go from there.
At the end of the day, you want to be always the one that's one step ahead of everybody, and when it comes to hip-hop, culture and art, you want to be that signature guy.
I wanted to make the lightest shoe possible, but still be able to perform at the same time.
I think people fail to realize that teams and organizations have been stacking teams since way back in the day.
Denver is home to me, and to be recognized for my achievements in the sports community here is a great honor.
I think going to college for that one year was probable the best thing I have ever done.
When I step on that basketball court, I'm thinking about basketball, I'm thinking about winning – but there's so much that goes into thought about how I'm going to open this game up to others. It's so much more than just basketball.
With the way everything's going now and the way that technology is going, you can do a lot of things with a lot of different new materials.
I know I'm not a selfish player. People around me know I'm not a selfish player. I do everything I can to make people around me understand I'm not a selfish player.
