    I bolded some of my favorite quotes, like when he basically called Kevin Martin a ballhog :grin:

    "James is no ballhog. He is a natural scorer who can also create, who passes the ball and when he doesn't, he comes in the next day and admits his mistake. You don't see that very often in the NBA."

    So can we all agree that Harden is not some greedy ballhog like some posters were trying to argue?

    what do you know... Harden takes accountability as well, maybe that is why Morey said he has been a great leader, better than ever expected.

    Can't help but loving Delfino on the team, will be sad to see him go while Morey chases Dwight. It's the right move, but if/when Dwight falls through, I'd look to regain Carlos at a higher base salary with team option.

    Can't help but to love this guy. Sincerely hoping his option gets picked up at the end of the season.

    Rational people can agree to that but I don't think you will find much rational from LOF's. :p

    Great interview and I love that the players seem to really love Kevin McHale.

    This guy reminds me of Luis, and also the times we had with Sura, Jon Barry, Deke, and even Eddie Johnson back in the day. Great veterans who came in and really made us wish we had had them here longer.

    Men, not kids, maybe that's what it is.

    "With the Bucks I played a more standing role, waiting for the corner three. Here I have more freedom and confidence, I play more with the ball in my hands..."

    great to see him having fun. love having him on the team - our record wouldn't be where it is now without his big threes.

    but carlos... let's temper down a bit on the ball in your hands thing, ok? It does make me a bit nervous when you try handling fast breaks...

    Maybe I missed. I didn't see many people say Harden is ballhog.

    That would be "brings his lunch pail" to many American announcers.

    There's a little bit more to the interview than I realized, in case anyone's interested:
