If you get tough mentally, you can get tough physically and overcome fatigue.

It's what you get from games you lose that is extremely important.

No rebounds - no rings.

Great teamwork is the only way we create the breakthroughs that define our careers.

Great effort springs naturally from great attitude.

In all the research you do as a coach, studying other coaches and championship-type situations, you find that all those teams combined talent with great defense. You've got to stop other teams to win.
