ESPN Radio interview

Interview

Battier comments on the feeling of winning an NBA championship:

It was surreal. You play this game for as many years as I’ve played and I use the analogy, I sort of wandered through the NBA wilderness the last 10 years, that’s what it felt like. You just never knew if you’d have a chance to host the trophy. … It was really surreal, like a movie.

WFNZ in Charlotte interview

Battier gives his thoughts of the reaction that the Miami Heat get in arenas across the league:

It really doesn’t matter. Obviously it’s nice to be cheered, but our goal is to win an NBA Championship. Whether people like us or not or cheer for us or not, it’s not going to make the ball go through the hoop any easier. … What I will say is people like to watch our team. We have exciting players. And if you like basketball, it’s hard not to like a LeBron James or Dwyane Wade. … The funny part is a lot of people say, ‘I don’t like LeBron or I don’t like Dwyane.’ Well, guess what? People watch because they want to see what they can do.

KILT in Houston interview

Interview

Battier talks about the NBA lockout and the impact it has on his career:

Life goes on, it really goes on. I’m fortunate to have played 10 years in the league. I’m secure in who I am. At this point, I’m confident that if the NBA were to never settle, I could go out and get a job and use my brain to provide for my family. That’s allowed me amazing piece of mind to just start thinking about post-basketball, but at the same time be ready for when we do settle, if we settle, to be ready to go.
