Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.
You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
You have competition every day because you set such high standards for yourself that you have to go out every day and live up to that.
Winning isn’t always championships.
When I was young, I had to learn the fundamentals of basketball. You can have all the physical ability in the world, but you still have to know the fundamentals.
To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don’t isolate.
There is no such thing as a perfect basketball player, and I don’t believe there is only one greatest player either.
The game has its ups and downs, but you can never lose focus of your individual goals and you can’t let yourself be beat because of lack of effort.
The best evaluation I can make of a player is to look in his eyes and see how scared they are.
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
Sometimes, things may not go your way, but the effort should be there every single night.
Sometimes you need to get hit in the head to realize that you’re in a fight.
