Dirk Nowitzki on retiring rival Kevin Garnett: "KG and I had a few battles just because he was so intense, and he was a competitor, the fiercest competitor. He always wanted to win, always wanted to get an edge on you early. He tried to intimidate you at times, but that was just his style. I have nothing but respect for him and what he did for this league. He was probably one of the best all-around players this league has ever seen. ... It's been fun to compete against him. At times, we got into it a little bit, but it's just because both guys wanted to win. That was his style – intensity. He had a passion for the game that was incredible."

An interesting stat to help explain why some NBA teams appear overrated or underrated on media day: minutes played in 2015-16. The Memphis Grizzlies' current roster played just 12,993 minutes in the NBA last season, putting them at the bottom left below.
