As I've said, basketball has been, I think, a real cooperative venture. There have been a lot of people that have been involved in it: coaches, administrators - not recently - fans and nobody, nobody any more so than students over the years.
I love various sports, including basketball, tennis and billiards.
In the tennis world, there weren't a whole lot of Asians playing. You see it a little bit more now. The same can really be said for basketball.
People who understand basketball definitely appreciate what I bring to the table.
Basketball is my favorite sport, and I'm also a very passionate football fan.
The invention of basketball was not an accident. It was developed to meet a need. Those boys simply would not play 'Drop the Handkerchief.'
It takes a tremendous amount of skill to be a football player. And some of these guys have enough skills to do other sports. Soccer could be one. Basketball could be another. Things where you need incredible hand-eye coordination are always options. I think a football player would be able to adapt to a lot of sports.
I always wanted to be a basketball player. Nothing more, nothing less.
Those companies that don't see the black and brown communities are missing, out of their closed eye, talent, which leads to money and growth. When baseball, football and basketball couldn't see the field, they missed talent and growth. The same is true in the tech industry.
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.
Michael Jordon may have been the best basketball player in history, but he couldn't have won six NBA titles without a team.
Mark E. Hyman
In high school I was on the basketball team, but the coach did something I didn't dig and the next day he looked up and saw me practising with the football team.
I grew up believing that one person could make a difference. In Indiana, you saw that with basketball. The small town could beat the big town, like in the movie 'Hoosiers.' That is one of the things that attracts me to entrepreneurs.
If you're a basketball player and you don't stop and take pictures with your fans, you can have an amazing game and everyone still loves you.
I play basketball to win a championship. That championship is everything to me. And that's what gets people to buy in to your brand - being a winner.
My childhood dream was to play basketball, actually.
If I weren't earning $3 million a year to dunk a basketball, most people on the street would run in the other direction if they saw me coming.
Basketball is in my blood. It is my obligation to try.
I gave everything I had to basketball. The passion is still there, but the desire to play is not. It was a great ride.
I can play basketball, run track, and play volleyball, so yeah, I've always been an athlete at heart.
Vivica A. Fox
I don't think people can watch University of Texas basketball or football games with me - really, anything Texas is playing - without wanting to punch me in the face. I'm as big a Longhorn fan as you'll find.
Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It's so much going on in music right now and somebody has to make a difference.
When it gets down to it, basketball is basketball.
I think I started learning lessons about being a good person long before I ever knew what basketball was. And that starts in the home, it starts with the parental influence.
I won at every level - all the way since I started playing the game of basketball at nine. I've won at every level, won championships at every level. And, you know, it won't be fulfilled until I win at the highest level.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
