Lonzo Ball on what Kobe Bryant meant to him while he grew up idolizing LeBron James: "I feel like my game's more like LeBron's than Kobe's so I think that's why I gravitated toward his game more but Kobe's one of the best to ever do it and I'm glad both of his jerseys [are being] retired."

Luke Walton recalls the first time he met Kobe Bryant and how Kobe, Karl Malone and Shaquille O'Neal had a bidding war for the right to "own" the then rookie Walton and make his "life a living hell" because of his father's TV commentary back then.

Steve Kerr on the health of his team: "It's gotta be as beaten up as we've ever been since I've been here. I don't remember having this many guys out, in particularly the starters. It's all part of it and we've handled it really well, obviously, and it's created some opportunities for other guys and I think they've taken advantage. So, it's all good."
