On being traded to Milwaukee:
"“The Houston organization kind of prepped me for it two days before it happened. When I first heard about it, it was more of a thought. ‘Hey man there’s like a 25% chance this thing happens’, so when it happened I was surprised. But this is the business, put one foot in front of another and just move forward.”"
On being born a scorer:
"“I’ve never had to been told to shoot the ball. Listen, God gave it to me. When I was two, I cleaned up the best. Put all the stuff in the bins faster than the other kids, you know, I just got a knack for putting things in the bucket.”"
On learning from his time in China:
"“The first time I went it was new, you know, I was in Shanghai, big city. It wasn’t really China, i think that’s what I got the second time. Shanghai is a dope city, it’s awesome. But we all grow and we all get to the NBA and you’ve this guy to do this and that guy to do that and you don’t really realize how immature you are until your stomach is growling and there’s nobody putting food in it. My second year in China, I had my family, I just learned how to live life as a human, not as a star or a rich guy. Got to spend a lot of time with my son and it humbled me. I came in on my high horse, number two pick, not listening to God himself and God just had to show me it could be taken away.”"
