Q: How do you like Oklahoma City?
A: It’s peaceful. I lived in New York for four years. New York is a lot of fun but here you can find your peace. I like the people here. Everybody is so nice.

A: Sometimes. Sometimes I’m the tall guy on the Thunder. Sometimes they know my name. A few call me Krispy (the nickname given to him by Desmond Mason). It’s fun for me, but I’m still getting used to it.
Q: How do you see this franchise the next couple of years?
A: We’re a young team, a young organization. A new team. The arena is always full. It’s a good situation. We just need to grow up. We’ll get better next year. We’re already getting better.
Q: Since you live in Serbia, where will you be during the All-Star break?
