  • loves the energy from the Celtics crowd, one of the big reasons he re-signed in Boston
  • priority was to get healthy (knee) in the offseason and do better with the ball in his hands including shooting
  • facing LeBron and defending him in the playoffs gave Crowder confidence
  • "Brad Stevens wants you to play to the best of your abilities," "play free and don't get outside of your lane, do what you do well"
  • in Dallas, it was very structured but in Boston, it was nice to be able to find his way
  • "I play with passion, I take my craft seriously, and I love winning"
  • about the Celtics crowd: "they make you want to lay it all on the line for them"
