Rudy Gobert: Forever grateful for Quin. Gave me a chance 8 years ago and believed in me when not a lot of people did. And helped our team grow into a Western conference powerhouse through all the ups and downs. Wishing you nothing but the best in your next chapter!🙏🏽🔮🙏🏽

Bryan Kalbrosky: Lakers coach Darvin Ham: “I grew up in Saginaw, Michigan. I was shot in the face by accident … You go through something like that, it’s going to do one of two things. It’s going to make you fearful or fearless. It made me fearless. I don’t feel no pressure. It’s basketball.” -via Twitter @BryanKalbrosky / June 7, 2022

Ryan Ward: Darvin Ham calls Anthony Davis “the key” to the Lakers getting back to a championship level. Emphasized the defensive side of the ball -via Twitter @RyanWardLA / June 6, 2022

Mike Trudell: Ham on AD: “His skillset, his size, his defensive accument, his relentlessness defensively is key. It’s going to be the foundation fo the type of standard we set … We need consistency out of Anthony Davis. We need him to be healthy … playing championship level basketball.” -via Twitter @LakersReporter / June 6, 2022
