Meditation helps you get in the zone.
I meditate before every game, I try to meditate every day.
You know the Knicks, they weren’t a good team, obviously, when I got here and I just kinda wanted to be a part of rebuilding, establishing the culture here.
I grew up a huge fan of Kobe.
I’ll be able to play all over the floor.
My mom is my biggest supporter. She’s been there since day one. She’s always going to have my back.
I come into the game prepared, put the work in, put the time and effort into my game.
Like if you know one thing about Thibs, he loves those who want to work.
Thibs is dope. Honestly, he’s a players’ coach.
Thibs is a guy that… just expects a certain level of professionalism, he expects you to do things the right way, be prepared and do things the right way on a day-to-day basis, and if you don’t want to do that, then it’s gonna be tough.
I will say this about Thibs, he’s a tough coach if you don’t like to be coached or if you don’t like to play or do things the right way, then he’s tough.
There are things I know I need to work on and things I can get better at.
For a coach to believe in you is key. Not only for the success of the player, but mainly for the success of the team.
I love playing in New York.
I want to retire as a New York Knick.
I think I can do things better than other people, which is dreadful.
I am very bossy.
My views are politically incorrect. Such as why we allow children to say what they think. It’s not how to bring up children. And now people give their children choices, like what they want to eat. Kids can’t deal with choices.
My thirties were ruined by being pregnant. I loved my babies but I had been quite successful before I had them, playing Lady Macbeth and Hedda Gabler, one of my favourite roles.
I felt an intense loneliness after my sister died. I was seven at the time, she was eight, and I realised after her death that she accepted me for who I was.
I was having the worst year of my life before the offer from ‘EastEnders’ came through. I was 58, my kids were grown up, and I had no money and few offers.
I was a procrastinator and a bookworm but I passed all my School Certificate exams, the equivalent of O-levels; I got three distinctions, three honours and three good passes.
In 1930, when I was three and my sister was four, my father sent us to Miss Tracy’s, a little ‘dame’s school’ in Ipswich. I do remember playing with an abacus. He took us away after a term because he thought we weren’t learning anything.
I’m absolutely pedantic about language; it must go back to my schools.
