Some gems (some paraphrased)... On why Dion never started: "We had two guards who had won thirty games when they started together those years. So I wasn't going to change." "He could have started for us. He could have started for anyone in the country." On what he told Dion after telling him to leave: "I told him that if he can accept that role [off the bench] and come back, he will be picked in the top 15 picks. That's what i told him." "I thought he was the second best player in the draft."
