"I bet on myself and stayed positive," he said. "A lot of guys in my position being 22 or 23 years old probably would never take that chance because they don't know what the outcome could possibly be. I know I had injuries and things like that last season and I've just been continuing to work and get better and constantly make strides within myself. That's how I've always been. Just focusing on myself, getting better within myself and telling myself I can be great at this game."
"When I figured out I was going to Golden State, that just made it even more of a dream," McCaw said. "To be able to be on the same team as Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Steph Curry, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston, guys that made it to the Finals in back-to-back years and have won the Finals ... to be with such great players and to learn from them my first couple years in the NBA is exactly how I wanted it to go."
