"I can't stand a ballplayer who plays in fear."
"An acre of performance is worth a whole world of promise."
"The best way to forget ones self is to look at the world with attention and love."
"You see, in sports you have so many things that aren't expected. There's so much uncertainty. So when players find themselves in a situation where management has a great deal of integrity and they can depend on my word or anybody else's word in the organization, they feel secure. And if the players feel secure, they don't want to leave here. And if they don't want to leave here, they're going to do everything they can on the court to stay here."
"Many, many times, the kids with the less talent become the better athletes because they're more dedicated to achieving their full potential."
"To be a successful coach you should be and look prepared. You must be a man of integrity. Never break your word. Don't have two sets of standards. Remember you don't handle players-you handle pets. You deal with players. Stand up for your players. Show them you care-on and off the court. Very important-it's not 'how' or 'what' you say but what they absorb."
"The most important thing in coaching is communication. It's not what you say as much as what they absorb."
