It's all competitive on the floor, but when we go back to the hotel, we're going to play FIFA, and that's going to be competitive.Justise Winslow, via MLIVE
"I can’t compare myself to any player. They’re doing their craft, and I’m doing my craft. We might use the same colors but we’re not painting the same thing."Stanley Johnson, from Martin Rickman's all-access feature for UPROXX / Dime Magazine on draft day.
"I can move all over the court. I can start a game at three, two or four, and I can be the primary ballhandler in any pick-and-roll or any two-man situation. And on defense I’m gonna play hard. I’m gonna play smart and I’m a nasty competitor. I don’t think there’s many guys out there who want to compete as hard as I do."
"I’ll be a great character in the locker room, a great leader on the team and I think no team can have enough people with great attitudes.Stanley Johnson, as told to Tucson.com. (hat-tip: MLive.com)
Monroe, too, might be out of the Celtics’ reach. (Another factor: Monroe is represented by David Falk, who also has Jared Sullinger. Think he wants to put them both on the same roster?)Sean Deveney of Sporting News thinks it could happen. That said, I don't think Falk will pass up max money just to keep another client happy.
"They have some very good pieces. I think Reggie Jackson helps them out a lot, brings them another attack guy that can push the ball. Obviously with (Andre) Drummond and (Greg) Monroe, it's a good test for us."LeBron James via The Detroit News

We use the Potty Watch. It’s a watch that has the timer on it and it beeps—I don’t know how it knows but it knows—when the kid should have to go to the restroom and they go and sit on the toilet and they get used to going. The funny thing is my youngest, now 3-year-old Gia, said "Dad, I went to the potty! I did it! I did it!" And I go to clean it up and I said "Where did you go?" She went in the corner. She went, but she just went anywhere in the house. That was the funniest moment.From Caron Butler's Q&A with Parents.com
