– In my while maintaining a basketball career, he has always been in the back of the head. He was born a year before me. He played in high school, when I was in high school in California, and played for the Lakers, when I still lived in California.

When he had won a championship, he was back in the hall after one or two weeks and made ready for the next season. There was nothing to take a month free.
