- Postgame quotes and stuff from warriors.com recap:
On losing the series:
"It's disappointing. There's a difference with being disappointed and being a disappointment. This team, we are disappointed with the way it ended. We battled; we fought. Truthfully, we had every single excuse tailor-made for us. We're missing our starting center and our backup center. We just battled against a team that I've got a lot of respect for. They're extremely well-coached and I think we'll see each other down the road again. I'm extremely proud of my guys, I'm grateful to this organization, to this management team – I think it's been an outstanding year for us."
On his future with the Warriors:
"I don't pay attention to it. There's never been discussions as far as my ownership group and my management team. So I don't pay attention to it. I work every single day with a passion and a commitment, like it's my last. I'm trying to be a blessing to people, I'm trying to impact people, and that's the way I live my life. That's the way I coach. I don't get caught up in it. I'm totally confident and have total faith that no matter what, I'm going to be fine, and that's even if I'm a full-time pastor. It's going to work out."
On if this season was a success or failure:
"It's hard to put it into black-and-white terms. Obviously making the playoffs is a checkpoint in what we were trying to do this year, and looking at the matchup we felt like we had a chance to win this series, if we played like we were supposed to. It comes down to the last two minutes of a seven-game series, so it's hard to say it's a failure of a season. Obviously we had our eyes set on bigger goals, but we fought and we left it all on the floor. I don't feel like we had any regrets as to how the series unfolded. A couple of plays here and there down the stretch of this game and we could be in a different situation. So we'll be alright."
On comparing this playoff exit with last season's series loss to the Spurs:
"It's tough. The more seasons I have underneath my belt, the more playoff experience, it hurts even more, because you've tasted it before. You've tasted a little bit of success and you want more. So it definitely stings a little more. Last year we were kind of on a joyride. Obviously we're disappointed with the way it ended, but this year, it stings. Seven games, that's a lot of fighting on the court, and we left it all out there."
On Coach Jackson's postgame speech to the team:
"He's proud of everybody, he's happy with the season that we've had, that only one team ends the season happy, and that's the team that wins the whole thing. There are a lot of very good basketball teams that have gone home yesterday and today, and unfortunately we're one of those teams. But we can build on this and come back even better next year."
On his performance this season:
"It was a different kind of season for me in what I was asked to do. The fact that we didn't win this series, even though it went seven games, I would of course like to think I could have done better. It was a different sort of series. Played a lot out of pick-and-roll instead of isos. Weren't a lot of post-ups with a guy like DeAndre [Jordan] guarding me at the five – a lot of pick-and-roll play. Defensively, my main job was to keep him off the glass. So I did the best I could in that category and like I said, it was a different kind of matchup and I just tried to do my best."
On this potentially being the last game of his career:
"Now it really is going to depend on my wife and my kids, especially my little boy. Being a kid that was raised without his father, I know how hard these last few years have been for my son. I'm going to sit down and have another conversation with a seven-year-old, an eight-year-old, again, and see where the blessings are for me. But I can say this: I appreciate what my teammates have done for me this year, injecting life back into my soul. I appreciate what our organization has done for me. I appreciate what the fanbase have done for me, giving me love for basketball again. I appreciate what Coach [Mark] Jackson has done for me. I appreciate what the owners have done for me. I wish we could repay everybody by winning it all, but this year it wasn't in the cards."
On Mark Jackson's future with the team:
"Here's my feeling about the ownership group: we have one of the best in the business that truthfully cares about the player and also the person. We have one of the best coaches in the business, without a doubt. But sometimes the business changes a little bit. You can't really control as players what happens. We saw it last year, with two coaches getting fired after winning fifty-plus games, record-breaking seasons. Whatever they decide to do, I'm sure they're going to make the best decision for themselves. As far as the ownership, I know they're going to continue to be great owners, premiere franchise owners. Whether Mark [Jackson] is here or somewhere else, he's going to be a fantastic coach. So I think either way no matter what happens, both guys are going to come out on top."
