"I have nothing to clear the air about personally," Maddon said. "Like I've said before, at the end of last season, I know that he was not happy with the role that he had in the playoffs. However, like I said, we had discussed everything prior to that. So I am always open to discussions, but I honestly don't believe that he is all that upset about anything right now, either."

"It's one of those things that I think sometimes gets over-made, overblown. I understand that it reads well. But at the end of the day, man, I have a lot of respect for him. He's a big part of what we're going to do again this year. And he was so large in our success at the end of last season. Listen, man, we do not win the ring without him."
