"I want to be a guy who can be big all the time, but I especially want to be big in the playoffs."
"I love to be around guys like that and try to be better than them."
"You get yourself set up to be in this position for a long time … When it comes down to it, first-, second-, third-round pick, it doesn't mean much anymore."
