I got some cash from agents. I've talked to the NCAA. I think that should be legal. I want some money, too; everybody else is making money. I want to go on dates. I want to go buy myself some new suits. I want to buy myself some new sneakers, and I paid the agents back.
I remember I'd be sleeping in the airport at 5 o'clock in the morning, traveling three hours, and playing a game that day. We never even chartered until my third year in the NBA.
I just grew up a poor black kid in Alabama with a single mom and two brothers.
I wish the American public wasn't so stupid if they realized that half the people on television make a living just to insult the other party.
Just because you watch 'Grey's Anatomy' doesn't mean you can do the operation.
I don't stand for anti-Semitism. We can't have that.

I live in Arizona. I think the Hispanic people are amazing. I think when people talk about illegal immigration... it does them a disservice.
I live in Arizona, and I don't like the way they treat Hispanics there.
When the cops are trying to arrest you, if you fight back, things go wrong.
Any professional athlete who gets on TV or radio and says he never played with a gay guy is a stone-freakin' idiot.
I think sports has done a disservice for a lot of black kids thinking they can only be successful through athletics and entertainment. I want them to know they can be doctors, lawyers, teachers, fireman, police officers, etc.
I don't know what that gas is made of, but it can't smell any worse than Ernie Johnson 's gym bag.
One thing about being famous is the people around you, you pay all their bills so they very rarely disagree with you because they want you to pick up the check.
My perspective is never gonna change on that... We've got to do a much better job to take care of poor people, because you cannot put all the poor people in bad neighborhoods, send them to bad schools, and say, 'Good luck in life.' That's just not right.
Bill Clinton is the greatest president of my lifetime. Period.
Everybody wants to talk about black and white, when the situation is really about rich people against poor people.
We need the cops, especially in the black community.
