You had playoffs runs playing in small-market towns like Sacramento and New Orleans. Dallas is a big place. Is there any difference in how you're received in smaller towns compared to a place like Dallas?

"When you're on the floor, you don't think that way. It doesn't matter where you play. It's the situation. Every time you are deep in the playoffs, it's a big-time situation and we understand that."

Your recollections of playing in Oklahoma City when you were with the Hornets?

"It was a great place to play. The people were so nice. They made us feel at home under difficult circumstances."

Any familiar faces in the stands still wish you well?

(Smiling) "Oh, no, no, no. They're cheering for another team now."
