I gotta tell you, you did a great job, but I’d rather have your dad standing here. Craig, we miss you. You’ve been an important part of all this for a long time, doing a great job. We want your fanny back on the court - and I promise I’ll be nice. Get back here. Good luck.

It’s almost like a Hollywood scipt for OKC. They went through Dallas. Then they went through the Lakers. Then they went through us. Those three teams represent 10 of the last 13 championships.

I don’t know if anybody has gone through a playoff playing those kinds of teams. It’s just incredible, and I think it’s pretty cool for them.
