Via Spectrum SportsNet:

“I just want to be able to not have any weaknesses and allow a defense to dictate what I do. Because of the Spurs in a lot of my early years, it’s part of the reason my jump shot is a lot better today. My first Finals appearance in ‘07, they went under everything and I didn’t shoot the ball. I wasn’t comfortable with shooting the ball at that point in time in my career. So, I give a lot of thanks to their scheme, a lot of thanks to a lot of other teams I went against.

“I’m just trying to be the most complete basketball player I can be, which adds to our team. If I can be as complete as possible then it puts the defense in difficult decisions defensively with how they guard me, and guard us.”

If the Lakers are hitting 3’s, they’re pretty much unbeatable.
