Kobe Bryant on how the San Antonio Spurs elevated his game: "Their discipline. When I first came into the league, I played off a lot of emotion. I played with a lot of rage. But the year we got swept in '99, it really showed me another level of the game in terms of the coldness in which they played, and the discipline they played with. That's when I realized I've got to get my game to that level, and I've got to get there now. They helped me find that next level of discipline."

Reporter starts a question to Kevin Durant, "I'm sure you get asked every arena you go to about free agency..." He cuts them off: "Actually I don't."

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Tyronn Lue on the NBA's last two minute report that determined J.R. Smith shouldn't have been called for a foul on Evan Turner late against Boston on Friday: "It's over now. I don't think that play had anything to do with it. I just think it was a bunch of things that led to that situation, so it happened. They say it wasn't a foul, but there's nothing we can do about it now."
