You're doing it and an extraordinary situation knows not a lot of guys throughout their career did you have the choice of which MVP do I wanna go to for little advice today. Don't have a coach that is like it's modern and wired it to understand players like Steve Kerr. How often. Are very grateful just to the situation is you've been in other situations too and this is just this something else. Man have I been listed in this is a waste and common in last year. You know after they won the championship. In India and the new guys but Khomeini just being able to be around a lot of great thing is I learned a lot less it was a big learning curve for me being in this league both on and off the floor. How to carry myself and how to how to leave works they just come up. You know embracing that and not be scared to ask questions from guys like Andre assign them. Massive Leandro Barbosa and talk in the Steffan and then inject money Katy this year. As has been. There's been so quick before me and help me. Not just to be a bit of that a player and a better person. Your friends your personal friends that you talk to must be incredible you know fans of basketball and must be. Wanting to learn an awful lot about this kind of threw you what is the number one question you get from your close friends. About this team the relationships you've made the situation you're in. Who's a bit sue America. And that's what I get out of far. We don't need it's only been. The answer. Just tell our manage our. Moms on trying to get through those does the servlet. But is this amazement has been a great ride being able to to be in this situation man in and like you see is David at the rob on the court. You know with these guys they they played it right away doesn't care who is pretty. Is a. A joy to be around as a sort of caloric every day. One shot for your life curry Durant or clay who shoots it I always used to go with clay. Because even if he rims out it's the prettiest form. Are we talking cats or assume we talk and off the drove this it's a shot for your life it is a catch and shoot. Open gym three. 50 collect really right now it's our right is allied allied would you say that you guys miss us it's this form is. Is what Jimmy Chitwood exacts. His party but also play. Clay doesn't see anyone when he CD of all this and know no matter at this if he's wide open as the 67 guys seven foot guy. Plays you you just you don't know either makes or misses it is really on him not to defend. And the thing is if you miss Disney newest realize he'd be like that break men go to I mean there's there's this I know and if that's the exact absolutely not that Jackson. Playoffs are coming up soon. Every single coach in the NBA titans their bench you're obviously going to be a big party that tightening has Steve party come to you to talk about. Your expanded role in the post season have you looked ahead in any way is how how your rule might change get about six more minutes tonight. They needed last year I could see in the playoffs come that's. It's going up. He has talked the about it all and parcel Seattle a ton of living here. You know we're trying to finish up the regular season ending gear up for the playoffs and make sure that the team in general rose and is going to be a stable and in god pieces today. And I think you know because is that gonna pound it. No and when I get to it but as far as as players no we don't have time obligated to this situation. Just going to be is as good as we can't right now in I love the game he had in Dallas he didn't just sit around. And wait for a shot to commute the perimeter you do a lot of dribble drive a lot of penetrating you got to the rim an awful lot. That is the next level your game isn't. Definitely. Not just be one to miss and are not images the Katzenbach that is there's gonna rumored to be an avid it's. Pay most of was this is being able to be at the point guarded times in and pound the ball. And also in penetrate and make plays but also. Numb out there were guys that they live format that guys like Andre in the US in the sound innocent that are great passes the US great on the posts. And amid post being able to cats in and make served as soft goods. And I decide to keep more because he's always look at the everyone's talking about who's gonna replace whatever bogey at Barnes took with them. That. Post passing that's what the US is duplicated his. Both it was a great. Big man passer and I know David what I'd know ideally I was like David West game was intimidation power in defense I've no idea he had so much skill. Definitely definitely and it's come into this here I didn't really know him ever play a little before obviously but. You know he's he's not he always tells us to keep Gaza over to see you throw wind you'd least expect it if you don't think you're open but to open. And it is as easy but is any kind of takes resolve. You know got my step wouldn't have to work so hard notes for us to get a bucket we can bring to seeking unity any easy layups and he's office won't. Are you keeping an eye and the eight cedar you're looking at the battles that right now. You got Denver and Portland slugging it out through that eighth seed is a lot of talk of deep either one of those teams are tough match up the tough road trip they'll come to the Denver Nuggets nobody likes flying to Denver yet to be tough if it's you know those there's about an hour right now. We we also got to make sure that we we take care about business. Known one empty seats so. I have looked ahead obviously got us to seem to be tough with him when we play. But also we got a mission that we read his work on pay. I really appreciate you coming over. It is March Madness it's Thursday the the tip of the the dance is starting up again today it's around a sweet sixteen. You went dancing three times he never picked up a win.

Are you satisfied would just having done it do you look back at it with some level of disappointment. Or was it just a great moment in time for union teammates. It was great. Every Kia wants the thinning NCAA tournament and Mara prudent choices won the Belmont obviously was close to home it's a great school. But also they were winning and I'm always get a chance to play in the estimates and it was it was tough not win any game you wanna be no stay asleep audited. Their legacy is we've never mated up the first around the fourth of the NF it's. To be on the it seemed that maybe you know for the school you wanna do sort of program.
