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.
Some suggestions for you :
I'd like to be settled into somewhat of a normal life. Somewhat. I know it's never going to be completely normal.
I do not have a problem, I enjoy gambling, but I think people are trying to make it seem like I have a problem, because people really don't know.
Ultimately, if you can say that I'm a bad owner and we're winning championships, I can live with that. But if we're not making the playoffs and we're spending and losing money, then I have to look in the mirror and say maybe I'm not taking the necessary steps to doing what it takes to run an organization.
I'm not out there sweating for three hours every day just to find out what it feels like to sweat.
The game is my wife. It demands loyalty and responsibility, and it gives me back fulfillment and peace.
I wasn't really a work-conscious type of person. I was a player. I loved to play sports.
There is no such thing as a perfect basketball player, and I don't believe there is only one greatest player either.
Even when I'm old and grey, I won't be able to play it, but I'll still love the game.
My body could stand the crutches but my mind couldn't stand the sideline.
I'm not a Twitterer, I'm not a twerker, I'm not a Facebooker, I'm not nothing. I'm old school.
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.
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.
When I was playing before I retired, I never really understood the appreciation and the respect that people gave me. People had treated me like a god or something, and that was very embarrassing.
