Are there any dudes on the team who spend a little too much time in front of the mirror? Stephen Curry: We used to have one, Toney Douglas was like that. He's not on the team anymore, but he'd spend an hour getting dressed. For the most part everybody's pretty normal. Andre Iguodala probably has the most extreme style day to day. He's the guy that stands out. We don't have too many guys feeling themselves. GQ.com

That was all Toney Douglas had played in his two weeks since joining the Heat, acquired to fill the roster spot previously occupied by the popular Joel Anthony. Now, on Feb. 11 in Phoenix, the journeyman guard would be starting for the two-time defending champions against the upstart Suns, pressed into action because Dwyane Wade had suffered a midday migraine. He was anxious to make an impression. The Heat's leader sensed he needed some validation, so he offered three words: "Be you, Toney." That's what it took to settle Douglas' stomach. That's not where LeBron James stopped. Every time Douglas played, over the final few weeks of the season, James made sure to make him feel comfortable and valuable. Douglas quickly got a handle on James' leadership style, which was largely "by example every day, in practice, in the locker room, on and off the court; he doesn't cheat the game." Bleacher Report

"No matter what, if he passes you the ball and you miss a shot, he doesn't get mad," Douglas said. "He's like, 'It's alright, OK, shoot the next one, have confidence.' The best player in the world saying that to you, that's a great feeling. Knowing that he believes in you, and he has confidence in you." Bleacher Report
