“I think I can bring a lot to the triangle offense. Derek Fisher wasn’t the tallest guard, but what he did is succeed and have a great career. I’m looking forward to learning from him. I’ve never played in the system, so I want to get there early.”
“I was a hyper kid, so I didn’t want to play baseball and wait for the ball to come to me. I wanted to play a sport where I could go get the ball.”
“As awkward as it sounds. I’m not Shane Larkin, Barry Larkin’s son, anymore. It’s Barry Larkin, the father of Shane Larkin.”
“I’ve always liked New York, always liked the city.”
“When I was young, it was fun being in the locker room and shagging balls in the outfield in spring training. But I couldn’t keep my attention on the games for more than 30 minutes. I would sit there with my Game Boy the whole game.”
