Now the rookie forward has progressed to eyeing a specific date for his return, which Hart said on Spectrum SportsNet is March 30 against the Milwaukee Bucks: “Definitely a possibility. Last week was a little rough. The tissue was a little sore and that kind of thing, but now the flexibility of it is starting to get there and the swelling is going down. I’m definitely targeting that game to try and get out there. Hopefully sooner, but definitely targeting that game.”

Quinn Cook: I think that’s a big reason why they wanted me to come here, just the fact that I’ve been on a championship team. I contributed on a championship team, playing well at key moments in the Finals and in big playoff moments and things like that. I think that’s a big reason why they wanted me. And that is a big reason why I wanted to come here too. With my experiences over the last two years, I know there’s no better feeling as a basketball player than to play well at the highest level and on the biggest stage. That was definitely a big reason why I wanted to come to the Lakers. It’s an amazing opportunity and I’m just blessed to be part of a great organization with so much winning tradition. And I’m still young, like you said, so I just want to keep learning from all of these vets who I’ll get to play with.
Harden cited a friendship that goes back to the Boys and Girls Club days in Los Angeles, telling an 11-year-old among the children gathered at the event that he and Westbrook have been friends since they were his age. “It works,” Harden said. “It’s that trust factor. I trust him; he trusts me. And with the group that we already have and the things we already accomplished, it should be an easy transition for him to be incorporated right in and things are going to go.”
Griffin routinely calls the Pelicans “Jrue’s Team” and even said Holiday can be a Most Valuable Player candidate this season, despite never making an All-NBA team in his previous 10 seasons. “He’s never really had a team to lead,” Griffin told SiriusXM radio. “When you’re as good as Jrue is, what makes you take the next step is your vision of self, and sometimes you need to be given permission to dominate people. In his situation with Anthony (Davis), he was always waiting, because it was Anthony’s job. “And now Jrue knows it’s his job, and he’s ready to do that.”
Quinn Cook: He’s always been a great, reliable vet and mentor to me. I know I can always rely on him. Like I said, he and Kobe were two of my favorite players when I was growing up, so it’s sort of surreal to even have a relationship with him. Playing against him in the Finals was a dream come true for me. Now, getting the chance to be his teammate again is great and another dream come true. I’m really excited for this opportunity. I know he called [the front office] on my behalf to help get me over here to the Lakers, so I’m very appreciative of that. Ever since I’ve been in Los Angeles, we’ve been working out together and staying in contact. I just think I’m very blessed, and I’m very thankful to have this relationship with LeBron.
