“Especially towards the end of my career, it gave me new life. We had a great team. I just did an appearance with Tracy, Oak [Charles Oakley], Antonio Davis, Junkyard Dog [Jerome Williams], and Muggsy [Bogues]. We talked about how we were such a veteran team that we could actually coach ourselves. Everyone was so knowledgeable about the game, and we knew each other.”

When asked whether he could still shoot, Dell had replied:

“Absolutely. I can hang with Steph in a game of H-O-R-S-E, as long as it’s indoors. I got beat outdoors. I’ll be able to shoot, I think, until I can’t walk. Now, the next day I’m sore all over. I can’t do it two days in a row. But I can still shoot. Absolutely.”
