"The guy selling the newspapers on the streets, cold outside, sees me driving by, he’s excited. He’s like, ‘Let’s go Bulls. Get it done tonight.’ I feel like I play for that guy. When I look at the top of the arena, teams call timeout, and I see that guy who looks this big and he’s up cheering and jumping up and down, that’s the guy I play for. To me, that’s what the city represents. There are a lot of hardship and adversity in the city. When I play basketball, I want people to be proud of their team."
