CA: None at all. Even the day he resigned we sat before shootaround and talked, trying to figure everything out. It was a tough time. We were losing games. Nobody could figure it out. I had nothing to do with it. He'd tell you himself.
There were times it looked like you may have been pouting.
CA: It was definitely a different feel for me. As far as pouting, I don't know how to do that. I've never pouted a day in my life. Any situation I've had to deal with, I've dealt with. That was a situation I had to deal with. It just didn't work out.
I'm giving you the chance to vote for MVP. Whom would you pick?
CA: I'd have to go between LeBron or Kevin Durant.
You have to pick one.
CA: Whoever gets the best record.
We're seeing lots of flagrant fouls this season. It seems that almost every hard foul is called a flagrant. Has that changed since you entered the NBA?
CA: Absolutely. When I arrived in 2003, there were a lot of veterans in the league known for hard fouling. The emphasis on flagrant fouls wasn't as magnified. They called it a playoff foul. You get up off the ground, you shoot your free throws, and you go back downcourt.
They also used to blow phantom whistles to help the superstars. Michael Jordan would always get the call. Does that happen anymore?
