Best Quotes:

I think if you look good, you play good. So you know, the 'Swaggy' starts with how I come in the arena — how I dress, the shoes I wear. The 'P' is a mystery. I can't tell you that right now. I might write a book someday.

'Um, lately, it's been kind of tough. You know, with Kobe back. So ... I've been in that corner a lot.'

On Nicki Minaj's alleged diss aimed at Iggy Azalea during the BET Awards: “I had to deal with the aftermath of all that. When she came home and was going through her phones, hearing everybody talking trash about her. I had to be there for her. Iggy is doing big things and that is what is scaring people. She is going to brush it off. She won’t let it get to her. She is number one — what can you do? She’s at the top right now, so of course they are going to come at you.
