I have short goals – to get better every day, to help my teammates every day – but my only ultimate goal is to win an NBA championship. It’s all that matters. I dream about it. I dream about it all the time, how it would look, how it would feel. It would be so...
I don’t want to be called a point guard, but I can’t stop it.
But ever since I was a kid, I was always the winner.
