I never wanted to be second best at anything.
Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing.
You don't want to look back and wonder what could have been.
The worst thing I can be is the same as everybody else. I hate that.
You have to believe in yourself when no one else does – that makes you a winner right there.
Once you know what failure feels like, determination chases success.
I know the game. I know basketball. I study it, and I know what I have to do on the court. That's my job.
