In keeping with their personal styles, Brad Miller and Kevin Martin had different memories of their time playing with new Dallas forward Peja Stojakovic.

Martin recalled Stojakovic as a mentor; Miller thought of him as a neighbor to torment.

"Peja was my neighbor in Sac," Miller said. "I'd hit golf balls at his house. It was fun. We really enjoyed learning how to play the game together and had a lot of fun."

Martin said Stojakovic and Miller showed him how to run Rick Adelman's offense, with few more effective at it.
