I spent 50 years in the NBA. Can you imagine doing something that you love the most in the entire world and doing it for your entire life and, besides that, getting a pile of money for it? It's unbelievable. I'm the luckiest guy in the world. And I know it.
Really, throughout my career, what I've done is taken teams with bad records and with every situation I've made them better.
He will miss training camp and the first month of next season. This is very important to them.
It's been difficult to get any continuity offensively. Our defense is definitely better. You can throw a bunch of new guys together and have a better chance to play defense collectively, maybe because of timing or whatever. But we don't know who we are offensively yet.

When he sits down, his ears pop
When you have bad teams, you've got to be creative to win games you're not supposed to win.
I'm the most unracist person around.

I've always been able to go to him,
We would play a team that's one hour away 300 miles away from home. That would be fun.
You have a lot of ups and downs in coaching, especially, but I can't remember any bad times at this point. I mean, they're all good. A lot of tears when you lose, a lot of down times, but I can't remember any of them. They're all positive now. Even the bad times were good.
It's just going to take a while. It doesn't matter how good he is.
I can't remember any regrets, to be honest with you.

I've still got a year left on my contract, and I intend to be back next year to coach.
[Still, Saturday's announcement was something of a surprise only because Nelson had said he was going to stay through next year.] I'm in my last years as a coach, ... I'm going to retire. I have this one and one more [year on my contract]. I expect to coach til the end. I want Avery to get some expe
It was great hanging with Pop and seeing how he does it. I noticed a few new wrinkles, some interesting things he does.
