Control your own destiny! Control your own destiny!
I’ve taken countless shots in my life, so you know the ones when you’re in rhythm, with a perfect release, and it’s on track, that it’s going in.
It’s crazy how fast you get out of shape if you miss a couple days of action.
We knew sports was important to us and our family, but there are priorities in life.Obviously, faith is foremost; how we did in school is important. If we didn’t handle that business then there were no privileges.
Think very carefully about what you want in life. Reckon with the risks.
I’m 6’3″ and 185 pounds on a good day, so I probably relate more to the casual fan who watches the game and is not super athletic, not this crazy monster of physical stature.
I want to thank God, obviously for the health, for the talent He’s given me, for my family who supports me, for the things that basketball’s taught me on and off the court. For the people that I’ve been able to meet through the game of basketball.
For me, I don’t want to cheat the game by saying, or kind of doing lip service by saying, I want to be the greatest ever. I want to be able to show it.
There are so many things we have to overcome in this life with Jesus, His work on the cross. He’s paid the ultimate price for us, so I’m proud to be a child of God.
I prepare to the point where instinct take over.
If you can’t move and talk to people that you see, it’s not really my scene.
That feeling is so intoxicating, walking off the court holding the Larry O’Brien trophy. So I just want to do that again.
I never looked at my mantel and envisioned an MVP trophy sitting there. This is pretty crazy.
