"It was a lot of fun, this is why I do what I do," said Jenkins, the only NBA head coach to coach a summer league team. "I love to compete, love to teach and have a great group of guys on the court and our staff off the court. It was so much fun to work with them for 20 days. It's a lot to do in a short amount of time. And to be able to win a championship is fun. I told the guys this morning when you have a chance to win a championship there's nothing like it."
"We had some moments in the game today where we couldn't score, things weren't going the right way, we were trying (but) our legs were not there," said Memphis coach Taylor Jenkins, the only NBA head coach to also coach his summer league team. "(Brandon) was just being super verbal with the team ... I'm really proud of how he kept the team together. Obviously the plays he makes down the stretch are very impressive."
