"I want to be a winner. I want to be known as a winner. The first four years of my career, I was spoiled by Stan Van Gundy, winning 50-plus games in the NBA and I thought, 'This is how it is in the NBA. You're going to be winning 50-plus game every year,'" Gortat said. "But unfortunately, things didn't go well for me in the past two or three years. It's not easy to lose 50, 60 games a year, and quite honestly, you can get tired of that."
