''So he has a little bit of a tendency to hold the ball for three, four, five seconds, then everybody comes to a stop. That is one of the things we work with. But he has adjusted to it, he knows what it can do and he's willing to see its success."

Following to these statements, he also made some harsh remarks to "Lebron James and business partners as a "posse".
