I think you have to honor people's feelings and their own personal beliefs, and I think that's been lost when it comes to vaccinated and non-vaccinated. And it kinda sucks that that's been lost because you're essentially not giving anyone... You say we live in the land of the free, well you're not giving anyone freedom, because you're making people do something, without necessarily making them, you're making them. And that goes against everything that America stands for - supposedly "stands for." So I am not in any position to tell him what he should or should not be doing.

I'm not to go and ask him if he [received] the Polio vaccine, so why would I ask him if he's received the Covid vaccine.

Meghan Markle, my selfless friend, lives her life – and leads by example – with empathy and compassion. She teaches me every day what it means to be truly noble. Her words illustrate the pain and cruelty she’s experienced.

I know first hand the sexism and racism institutions and the media use to vilify women and people of color to minimize us, to break us down and demonize us. We must recognize our obligation to decry malicious, unfounded gossip and tabloid journalism. The mental health consequences and systemic oppression and victimization are devastating, isolating and all too often lethal.

I want Meghan’s daughter, my daughter and your daughter to live in a society that is driven by respect.

Keep in your memory the fruitage of the spirt is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.

I’m one of the league leaders in points in the paint... At this point, it’s like they’re trying to turn me into a jump shooter. I can’t be a jump shooter. I’m not a jump shooter... I watch games every single night, and I see jump shooters going (to) the line multiple, double-digit times every night. I’m not a jump shooter, and I get fouled just like everybody else. Going to the line one time, three times, four times, that’s not what it’s about.
