On who the best player in the world is right now:

"Kevin Durant. I'm riding and dying with Dirk Nowitzki, but if you say right now, what this guy has done -- and I love LeBron's total floor game -- but when it comes down to your best player in those crunch moments and clutch moments, he has to come through. I'm not as critical of LeBron as other people have been, but when you see what Durant did against the Heat last game and what he did against the Spurs ... and he had three game winners in Oklahoma's first seven playoff games. What he's done as a superstar is tremendous and to step up big in those moments takes a lot."
