A lot of times guys didn’t like each other from other teams, but as you get older, you’ve got to get beyond all of that and show some love and some respect for the people you played with and against."

Drexler faced off against Jordan and the Bulls in the 1992 Finals, losing in six games. However, Drexler doesn't see the loss as a personal failure, since wins and losses are a team effort.

"This is a team game, it’s not one guy," Drexler added. "You can have 50 points and 40 rebounds, but if you lose, are you less of a player than anybody on the other team? No, it’s a team game. So I hate when people act like it’s an individual competition. I didn’t take 35 shots and get 20 free throws a night, so I wasn’t going to score 40 points a night."
