“I can tell you not even the NBA Eastern Conference Finals could’ve kept me from enjoying this moment, to experience this with you guys today,” he said. “As far as the legacy and what I can leave behind to my children, this is a big stepping stone in my life. I wouldn’t have missed this if my life depended on it.”
