"It was awesome. I lived that, and I was on the edge of my seat."

"You can't say anymore than that. I knew the ending, but the different stories, some stuff I may have forgot, but it brought it all back. For a new generation to experience that and to know what happened, knowing the whole sports world will see that, it's going to be awesome."

"That was like a movie instead of a documentary to me. They did a great job."

"We were telling stories and a lot of stuff ended up on the editing floor... you probably couldn't put it on TV, the documentary, but it was just a great time getting together. I hope the guys can get together every year like he said."

"Thinking about coach and the way Whittenburg did it and the way they exonerated from all the scandal and all that, that was big for me because I knew a lot of that stuff wasn't true. Nobody gave me grades when I was here. I went to summer school every year I was here."

"To put the Jimmy V, the cancer, and the ESPY speech, it just brought tears to my eyes. I was there with my wife and tears were running down our eyes. It just gives a new perspective on coach."

"Coach Krzyzewski, I have a new-found respect for him because he was there the whole time."

"It was just an awesome story, film."

"In Reynolds, it brought back so much, just being in this place. We left a lot of blood, sweat, and tears in Reynolds here. To see it among a lot of Wolfpack faithful and a younger generation that really doesn't know the story, coming out and experiencing what we did... it's just unbelievable for me."

"I'm just filled with a lot of emotion right now."
