When asked about how money affects roles in the NBA, Hollins referred specifically to loyalty, reminding the radio hosts that players, coaches, and management should stay in their roles.

"I think everybody, our society has moved towards now not a lot of loyalty, run for this, run for that, whether it be money, whether it be for to be with better players." The Brooklyn Game

It certainly wasn't a defense and not even an explanation, but in an interview with a North Carolina newspaper, Mike Krzyzewski talks about why he chose his former center for Team USA ... and how USA Basketball only decided at the last minute to choose a select team to practice against the senior team. "We weren't even sure we were going to have a Select team for the training in Las Vegas, so that was a last-minute addition, just having a Select team," Krzyzewski told Bret Stretlow of The Fayetteville Observer. "The Select team did a terrific job, and Mason all of a sudden came to the forefront and made us say, 'Shouldn't we look at this guy? We have the perimeter, but what about the bigs?' NetsDaily

“[Plumlee’s] a great communicator,” Thibodeau said. “You see that he sees things early. He’s a multiple-effort guy. That’s what Kevin is, and any time a young guy has an opportunity to be around a guy like Kevin, it’s very beneficial. “Kevin is a great player and just the way Mason developed last season, I thought he had a great year and I think it’s carrying over into the summer. He’s a guy that plays with a lot of confidence.” New York Post

When we speak about dinner can you tell us something about food in America? Mirza Teletovic: "Honestly, it's all quick, high calorie .... I am in "good shape" because most time I eat what my wife cooks me. She is from Dalmacia (region in Croatia along the Adriatic coast). Her fish dishes, skillfully prepared, are delicious. Light foods are my favorite dishes." How difficult are all those road trips? Mirza Teletovic: "It is hard, we lose a lot of time on airplanes. Every second to third day is game. I was more than once in a situation where we came into a hotel settle in rooms and I'll go out for a few minutes. When I come back, I've forgotten which is my room! But, NBA teams do everything to provide us with as much rest, sleep, relaxation as possible. It is also important that each player knows what suits him best when traveling." NetsDaily

That count stretches to only nine if you include two players USAB sources say have emerged as Krzyzewski favorites -- Golden State's Klay Thompson and Brooklyn's Mason Plumlee -- and then presume Rose and DeMarcus Cousins (bruised knee) will be healthy enough to fulfill their planned roles. "I'm not going to do assumptions," Krzyzewski said of Rose. "I think he's ready. I'm thinking about him playing and being there [in Spain]." ESPN.com

"Right now, there is no plan to put any restrictions on him, but I think as we do with all players through the preseason -- whether you’re looking at KG or Deron, who’s coming off of ankle injuries -- you build them up. You get them ready for the opening day of the season, but you’re really getting them ready for January, February, March and April. So I look at it like climbing a ladder throughout the season when you have veteran players. But I know Lionel is gonna push all these guys and challenge them physically. And whatever doctors allow Brook and Deron to do, Lionel is going to push them to that point." NetsDaily
