That is how you become a leader, not by telling people you are.
I don't think it was necessarily a press conference but it's just he was in town for a physical and the writers talked to him while he was here since they are starved for news. He's got the most seniority on the team now and he's just emphasizing that he's going to be a leader on a team which has lost it's most senior players - and leaders - two years in a row. It's basically fluff for the offseason so I wouldn't make it into any more than that.
