Booker said on his Hall of Fame podcast about his return, "I'm like [Bill] Russell. Player/coach. I coach em from the outside and now I'm putting myself in the game. Going in and scoring 30. That's what it's all about. Let these young guys get a rub. Get a rub and let them see exactly what it takes from an inside perspective. On the job training. This is about learning this thing the proper way. A straight line, that's the direction that Gaspar Hernandez is going. I just finished working out in the gym. I had to calm myself down. I'm getting prepared and ready to do something special. First time it's ever been done, player/coach, Booker T."
