Obviously, I want to be an All-Star.
LeBron and Rondo are arguably two of the best leaders ever.
Melo has a chance to be a better player than me, for sure. I feel at the same age, he's better than me. In real time, I don't think he's better than me. But I'm the big brother so I'm always going to have that edge over him.
I think it was tough being a young guy, especially in L.A. All the people looking at you and we had a big responsibility over there.
I got a close friend who raps.
A lot of people label me as not a defender for some reason. I don't know why.
I know there are a lot of kids who aren't lucky enough to have a father figure in their lives. That's a really tough obstacle to overcome.
My dad's a funny guy.
I like '4:44.' It's a good album. AY-Z's a great, great artist.
Playing defense out here against grown men is physical.
Obviously if your head coach expects more of you, you bring it to the table.
Oh, my dad listens to a lot of 2Pac, Ice Cube and WC. That's what he was listening to a lot when we were growing up. He's always been a fan of hip-hop.
If I'm mad or showing my frustration, the whole team's gonna be like that, techs, and people are going to go down. So I just try to keep the even keel. That's why I don't get too high or too low. I've been playing like that my whole life. It's just natural for me.
A lot of things are going to happen that you can't necessarily control all the time, but you can control what you do after it happens. So that's what I try to do, keep my head up, keep moving forward, stay positive and just work hard.
If you mention the Lakers, you think about Kobe.
I feel like my game is more like LeBron's than Kobe's, so that's why I think I gravitated toward his game more.
When I was little I definitely listened to a lot of DMX and 50 Cent. Those were probably the two main rappers I was listening to when I was young, but my favorite rapper has always been Lil Wayne.
Magic Johnson is one of the greatest players to ever play... he's the best point guard to ever play, so I can learn a lot of things from him.
I think I can score. But personally, I like to pass first, because people love people who pass. And I'm a point guard, so my job is to kind of get people open.
I was just taught, the team goes how the point guard goes.
