Los Angeles ― Excerpts from an interview Tuesday with Jazz forward Paul Millsap.
Reaction to not starting against the Lakers: It's a tough situation because you work to continue to get better; you work to continue to, I guess, get promoted. It's just like a daily job. You work your butt off to get places in life that you feel like you've grown and you feel like you need to be. I'm not calling it ― it's not a demotion. I believe [Corbin] in that sense. But it's still a tough thing to try to swallow. But being the team player that I am, I have to go out there and do the best I can to fulfill that role off coming off the bench.
Proving people wrong throughout his college/NBA career and viewing this as just another challenge: That's exactly how I look at it. I'm a guy who loves challenges. This is going to be a tough challenge for me but I'm going to overcome it.
