Sean May (3:04)
"I'm the lightest I've been since my freshman year of high school. I'm in the best shape, injury free and hopefully it'll be that way the whole season. I weighed in yesterday at 257 and hopefully by the time practice starts I'll be at 255. … I just felt I had too many nagging injuries and wasn't as mobile and fluid as I needed to be."
Raymond Felton (3:55)
"We've got guys who've been in big games – we won some and we lost some. It's all about experience, maturity and being a team. We've got all those things down."
Rashad McCants (3:39)
"I think everyone's more disciplined [on defense] and everyone is just eager to win. With the way we're competing in pickup, once Coach puts it together everybody will be able to click as a team."
David Noel (4:44)
"It was kind of hard last year after I got injured and tried to come back earlier than I was supposed to. I had some ups and a lot of downs and it made me stronger for this year and I'm not taking anything for granted."
Damion Grant (3:03)
"They're all surprised at how much weight I've lost …On Tuesday we did our conditioning test and I did that for the first time this year and I passed it so that speaks a lot to how much better I'm running and where my conditioning is at now. I'm not satisfied, but I'm in the best shape of my life."
Jackie Manuel (3:02)
"We wanted it so bad that we just couldn't complete some plays … I think the team, the coaching staff, I think we all are comfortable [this year]. We have a feel for each other and it's going to be a smooth ride."
Melvin Scott (1:57)
"Tough times don't last, tough people do … Each and every year [we've grown]."
Jawad Williams (3:31)
"We're a lot more mature now … I think guys when times will get tough they'll look to us. We've been through the tougher things – being 8-20, that was tough enough."
