[Isiah Thomas]: On Giannis, “This was a Wilt Chamberlain performance, this was a Lew Alcindor/Kareem, you know, Shaq performance. This wasn’t like just, you know, a Dirk Nowitzki performance or a Karl Malone. This was like the giants of our industry. That kind of performance.”
“I always go back to (John) Stockton and (Karl) Malone,” coach Gregg Popovich said. “Jerry (Sloan) ran the same play for 20 years, they just ran it really well, and that’s what we want to do. We want to play defense a certain way, offense very simply, but still taking advantage of everybody’s abilities. “It was better,” Popovich also said. “Bit by bit, every day I hope.”
“If I’d known you guys were going to make fun of me for not winning a championship, I would have joined a superteam back in my day—me and Patrick [Ewing] and Karl Malone and John Stockton. But I feel good about my legacy. I’m pretty sure Patrick and John and Karl do, too. LeBron [James] started this superteam thing [in Miami], and hey, it’s the way the game is played now.”
