"Obviously, I'd like to thank everyone who's supported me over the years for helping me reach this goal so early in my NBA career. But I also want to briefly recognize some people who haven't always been so supportive. People like coach Rambis, who figured I should probably only play half a game for a really long time. Or the editor of my GQ blog, who made fun of the way I was dressed for my appearance on 'The Suite Life on Deck,' which I didn't appreciate. Or Wesley Johnson, for obvious reasons.
"The sheer rage I feel in my heart when I reflect on your slights, acts as a sort of fuel for my play; in a very real sense, you've given me the motivation I need to improve all facets of my game, including my dunk-face game. Is it working? I think the answer is as plain as the soul-tormenting anguish on my face."
