It’s about winning games,” Fiz said during an appearance on ESPN’s The Jump (starting at 3:52):

“That’s the League. The best player and the coach aren’t always going to get along. That’s just how it goes sometimes.” […]


“It was just unfortunate circumstances how it all played out on the stage. But that’s just normal stuff.


“Whether we like each other or not, it’s not about that. It’s about winning games.”
