I never looked at the consequences of missing a big shot... when you think about the consequences you always think of a negative result.

Profession: Athlete
Nationality: American

Some suggestions for you :

I'm not out there sweating for three hours every day just to find out what it feels like to sweat.

I will not quit this game because of what the media has done to me.

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.

The game is my wife. It demands loyalty and responsibility, and it gives me back fulfillment and peace.

For a competitive junkie like me, golf is a great solution because it smacks you in the face every time you think you have accomplished something. That to me has taken over a lot of the energy and competitiveness for basketball.

I believe greatness is an evolutionary process that changes and evolves era to era.

I want to be the bridge to the next generation.

In college I never realized the opportunities available to a pro athlete. I've been given the chance to meet all kinds of people, to travel and expand my financial capabilities, to get ideas and learn about life, to create a world apart from basketball.

Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.

I can't speak for the future. I have no crystal ball.

My challenge when I came back was to face the young talent, dissect their games, and show them maybe that they needed to learn more about the game than just the money aspect.

There's only one Michael Jordan.

We all fly. Once you leave the ground, you fly. Some people fly longer than others.

I built my talents on the shoulders of someone else's talent.
