“The ball gets moved around and they’re just so comfortable. That’s part of the problem. They’re allowed to be comfortable and confident and draw on all their experience. They have to be made to feel uncomfortable. That’s what this whole stage and season is all about. There have been stretches where this has looked like a Harlem Globetrotters game. I don’t think this is an anomaly or a fluke or anything. The Warriors are that good. It’s up to the Cavaliers to be good at what they do.”

“We made up our own games. We had a radio and that’s it. So in my book, I try to devote a couple of chapters to what we did back in the ’30s. And of course kids nowadays don’t realize that at all. They got their little thing in their hands that they watch. We just had to make up games out in the street or in the backyards or in the school yards or whatever. We had fun, too.”

“He did not leave on the best of terms, and he would admit this. It didn’t help that there was an arrest after his third season. But this guy, again, was the No. 1 pick. At the Combine, people were saying, ‘This is arm strength we’ve never seen before. This is a quarterback in a linebacker’s body.’ Not even a flier for a training camp invite? We’re talking about the loneliest of second chances, and it just never came his way. I think there’s a part of him that sort of has kept the dream.”

“A lot of people get uncomfortable and they don’t really know how to react to that, but I think even when he’s uncomfortable sometimes, he makes it comfortable for himself. That’s a great quality to have, especially at quarterback, which demands so much at this level.”

“I went to their camp in spring training this year and saw what a great group (they) are. Fell in love with how they’re together and a close-knit family. But Tuesday night was like, ‘All right, you’re on an island by yourself. We love you, we’ll pick you up and dust you off, but enough’s enough. You need to get your ass kicked.’ And look, if you’re so tough, then that’s what you needed to do for yourself, so then you handle it – and I don’t think he handled it that well because Manny was throwing him around like a little rag doll out there.”

“I think that’s an easy scapegoat to give. The Warriors play extremely hard. I think they didn’t make shots that they usually make. Cleveland had a different game plan. They didn’t switch like they did in the first two games. They chased them off of every screen. I think that kind of surprised them. I think the Cavs just played a better game and had a better game plan going into the game. I think it’s as simple as that. The Golden State Warriors, to win 73 games, there’s never a lack of effort in that team.”

“It seemed like a lot of those missed three-pointers resulted in Cleveland run-outs. And conversely, when Cleveland is hitting threes, now you have to take the ball out of the basket, they’ve added three points and you’ve got to start from scratch to build an opportunity to get your shot. So with that being a big factor in the game these days, I think that’s why these games seem to run hard in one direction or the other.”
