Kevin Love: Those of you who know Champ will appreciate this… I’d like to tribute the best teammate I’ve ever had, James Jones aka Champ. You taught me more than you know the past 2 years— what it takes to win, how to be a better teammate, how to balance the good/bad off the court, and most importantly…putting team first. Sacrifice for the better of the team, and in order to lead sometimes you have to learn to follow. You’ve been to 6 straight Finals. You’ve been the constant presence we needed in the locker room. You’re the ultimate work horse. The lessons you taught me will stay with me for the rest of my career and life after basketball.
“I am in the NBA, No. 1, and that signals to me that I’m fortunate,” Jones said. “To get to the Finals and win championships and compete for championships is above and beyond. I’m grateful and gracious every day that I’m here. I don’t take it for granted, and that’s one thing that allows me to come here and work regardless of my role. I understand that this isn’t something that given, and sometimes it is not even earned. You’re just blessed to have this opportunity. A lot of times, the chips fall the right way and you get a chance to do something unbelievable and live an experience very few people experience and many people would give their lives for.”
