Nice interview with Kirk Hinrich

In the LA Daily News, here's a sample of what you'll get if you read the whole thing.

Q: Utah coach Jerry Sloan has said you have "a John Stockton way" about you. What was the first thing that went through your mind when you heard that?

A: I was shocked. It's unbelievably flattering. Jerry Sloan, John Stockton, you admire them and how they went about the game. But I don't try to live up to those expectations because they're so great. You've got to take it as a compliment. That's about it. You don't let it go to your head and just keep doing what you're doing to get you to this point.

Q: Did you allow yourself to hope for a reserve spot on the All-Star team?

A: I don't deserve it. There are so many other guys who do. I didn't.

10 to the rafters.
