Channing Frye: “Who the hell would’ve thought Channing Frye would be an NBA champion? Just four years ago, a team doctor in Phoenix looked at me and said the words that changed my life: “Channing, this is serious. If you exercise, there’s a chance you could die.” Before I start getting all sentimental, let me go back to the start. Kick your feet up and let me build this thing. Growing up, I wasn’t the best player — Richard Jefferson, whom I’ve known since I was 14, will gladly vouch for that, and often does. (Richard is the biggest bully on the Cavs, hands down, by the way.) In high school, I had size and I had raw potential, but as a basketball player I was hot garbage. When I got to Arizona, I got beat one-on-one every day in practice. A redshirt was hanging over my head. I knew I had to get stronger and better, fast. I was in the weight room constantly. I was shooting extra shots at night with Jason Terry, Luke Walton and RJ. Seeing guys like Jet and Richard work out that summer, it showed me how much they sacrificed to get so good.”

Channing Frye: “When I got to Phoenix a few years later, I was like, Damn, this is what it’s like to win? I got that taste going to the Western Conference finals in 2010. I learned that 90% of winning is about what happens before the game. Are you doing the right stuff off the court? Are you preparing correctly? Are you taking care of yourself? I didn’t understand the importance of that stuff, at the time. But I was starting to grow and figure it out.”
