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

I play to win, whether during practice or a real game. And I will not let anything get in the way of me and my competitive enthusiasm to win.

My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But 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’ve always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.

Always turn a negative situation into a positive situation.

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 are plenty of teams in every sport that have great players and never win titles. Most of the time, those players aren’t willing to sacrifice for the greater good of the team. The funny thing is, in the end, their unwillingness to sacrifice only makes individual goals more difficult to achieve. One thing I believe to the fullest is that if you think and achieve as a team, the individual accolades will take care of themselves. Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships

I’ve never been afraid to fail.

As athletes, we’re used to reacting quickly. Here, it’s ‘come, stop, come, stop. There’s a lot of downtime. That’s the toughest part of the day.

Even when I’m old and grey, I won’t be able to play it, but I’ll still love the game.

I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.

People ask me if I could fly, I said, “yeah…. for a little while

I never thought a role model should be negative.

I realize that I’m black, but I like to be viewed as a person, and this is everybody’s wish.

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

If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

My body could stand the crutches but my mind couldn’t stand the sideline.

My heroes are and were my parents. I can’t see having anyone else as my heroes.

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.

Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.

Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.

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

There is no “I” in team but there is in win.

You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
