I lold at this in another interview question.

I think Game 7 of the 2000 Western Conference Finals against Portland was the defining moment of your career. What was going through your mind, down 15 in the fourth quarter?

But the Portland game, if the general panics then the troops will panic. Phil was like, ďIíll see you next summer.Ē Thatís all he said. We were like, ďNo, weíre not going out like this.Ē Steve Smith was out there celebrating way too early. But youíre right: That game could have broke me if we didnít win.
