Tony Parker on his rehabilitation from a ruptured left quadriceps suffered in the Western Conference semifinals: "By far the toughest thing I've ever had to do in my whole career. I've never spent that much time in the weight room, and all the details. I think it was just great for me overall, for my body, after playing for 16 years and 16 summers in a row with the national team. I think it was just great for me to get back and basically learn everything; learn to walk again, then jump, then running, all the baby steps that you have to do. I couldn't move for like three weeks after surgery. I was like paralyzed. So it was just a long time, and sometimes frustrating. The discussion I had with Pop and the medical staff is when I come back, I want to come back like how I was playing during the playoffs. Not come back and then you miss three games, play one game and miss three games. When I come back, I want to be back. When I first got injured, everybody was like, ‘Ah, it's the big one. It could take eight to 10 months. You're not going to come back until the end of January.' So of course, I worried and didn't know how my body was going to react. Some doctors said that I may never be able to bend my knee like before. So you take that in consideration. I took it like a challenge. Now there's very little chance to zero, the doctors say, that I could re-injure that quad. So I feel very confident. I don't even worry because to re-injure something like that, you'd have to do something massive."

LaMarcus Aldridge on rumors of the Spurs trying to trade him over the summer, and his frustration with struggles trying to fit into the team's system: "It's a part of the NBA. Guys move around and guys go from team to team at times. It happens. I'm used to it. I know I can only control what I do, and that's what I did. I worked hard all summer and got better. I'm healthy right now. I feel good. Maybe in my younger days in Portland, I might have taken it personal. Now I'm older and I'm used to the game. I know it's a business. I don't take it personal anymore. I talked to Pop and RC some. So I wasn't worried. If it happened it happened, but it didn't. People are always going to say things or flip things or run with stories. It was probably a little bit of frustration at one point on my end. I felt like I wasn't really fitting into the system as best I could. I wasn't really helping like I felt like I could. With any relationship, it's work. I talked to Pop and the staff and R.C. I feel like I'm going to try to be better at this year, and hopefully things go better. The relationship has always been great. There's no issue. It's just trying to mesh who I was to who I am now and try to get more out of me in the system."
