I love Mike (Brown) to death and don’t know what the situation would’ve presented itself had he stayed but for me I’m one of those guys where first of all just give me the opportunity to be on the court for an extended period of time and eventually I will find a way to contribute but it was difficult for me to come in the game and my only three or four shots were threes and I’m a guy that needs to get into a rhythm with tip ins, slashing to the basket or pick and pops or things of that nature. […] It’s unbelievable in Los Angeles. I love the fans and the people of Cleveland but it’s nothing like playing here in Los Angeles. Great weather, restaurants, there’s always something to do. In Cleveland, when it becomes November and December, the only thing you can do is try to win basketball games and watch television.
— Former Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Antawn Jamison, Tuesday, in an interview with ESPN Los Angeles with Mason and Ireland. Jamison’s play with the Lakers has improved substantially since the hiring of Mike D’Antoni. He was the Cavs’ second-leading scorer behind point guard Kyrie Irving in 2011-12.
