Q. What specific things have your teammates done to help you through this situation?
A. Roy came and visited me while I was in the hospital in Vegas. He brought me a bunch of goodies. He brought me some Gummy Bears. He gave me a silk and fur blanket to lay on. C.J. Watson was there before surgery, to visit me in the hospital. (After I got back) George Hill came over, (Chris) Copeland came over, Coach Vogel came down to see me, from being on a vacation. That really meant a lot to have my guys there by my side. It was a tough time for me.
Q. Of all the people who have reached out to you over the past few weeks, celebrities and fans, which ones mean the most?
A. All of them, whether it's kids three and four years old to Floyd (Mayweather) coming to Vegas and visiting me. All the cards I've received, all the prayers that have been sent up. Whether it's social media for fans sending Get Well cards. NBA friends and celebrities reaching out … I can't say either is more important, it's all been important during this process.
