Brendan Haywood Quotes

I think if he could look into a crystal ball and see the future, he'd probably realize he made a big mistake, because he could've made a name for himself and changed the way this whole league views him, just off this series alone. He has a great 15-foot jump shot and he's highly skilled. This could have been the series that changed his game around because, like it or not, he was going to play.

The most important thing about camp and the preseason will be getting some chemistry going with the new guys. Last year, we knew where everyone was going to be on a certain play, how they were going to react to a certain defense or where they wanted a pass. It's going to take some time before we have that again.

There's the elite centers and then there's a second group. I'm in there right now so I have to keep working and climb my way to the top.

I worked hard this summer on my right-hand jump hooks, my left-hand jump hooks, turnaround [jumpers], I want to continue to develop a 15-foot jump shoot and make my free throws, ... If I can do those things, I'll be putting up 15 and 10.

I wasn't late. I didn't cuss anybody out. It was just a coach's decision. It was just something that had to be done. If he's not saying anything about it, I'm not saying anything about it because it wasn't a negative thing.

One play doesn't win a ball game. Some guys said it helped us out a lot. I'm not sure. It was just one play. It was something I felt needed to be done. I thought the team as a whole, we all knew we had to be better and bring a more physical presence.
