Shane Battier's plans for his pro paycheck? To pay off his parents' mortgage. "I'm going to have a pretty similar lifestyle to now," Battier told the Raleigh News & Observer. "The only difference is I'll probably have a nicer home and a nicer TV."
When I went to play ball in the city, the guys there saw me as a white kid from the suburbs," he says. "When you're a kid, the most important thing in the world is fitting in."
On time at Duke:
"I had the best time in college. It may sound old or archaic but I had the best time of my life. I was in no rush to get out there and now I want to go to Memphis and help the Grizzlies."
On all the underclassmen being drafted ahead of time:
"I have no hard feelings. That's the nature of the draft and the NBA and I think the Grizzlies got a good player."
On being drafted by the Grizzlies:
"Now it's time to go to work. I'm going to give the Grizzlies my best effort and try to contribute immediately."
"It's going to be a special night," Battier said. "I don't think you could have two better teams, two better coaches, two better traditions in this championship game. We know Monday night is going to be a special game."
