  • When he knew he was part of a special squad in Sacramento and how easy it was to click with everyone
  • How seeing Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox play reminded him of him and his teammates
  • “Definitely I think he [Sabonis] should be an All-Star, both of them. I hope that they get the respect they deserve. They deserve it.”
  • What makes a good lock-down team defense?
  • Which former teammates Mike Bibby still talks to today.
  • Why he’s not surprised the fans are still as loud as they were 20 years ago.
