Every Morning You Have Two Choices: Continue To Sleep With Your Dreams, Or Wake Up and Chase Them.— Carmelo Anthony
The most grateful Carmelo Anthony quotes that will inspire your inner self
I believe that you should put the right people around you, people that will not let anything go wrong.
Family time is the best time.
Always stay true to yourself. Some people will like it, some people won't. Life goes on.
When I step on that basketball court, I'm thinking about basketball, I'm thinking about winning - but there's so much that goes into thought about how I'm going to open this game up to others. It's so much more than just basketball.
I want to be a free agent. I think everybody in the NBA dreams to be a free agent at least one time in their career. It's like you have an evaluation period. It's like if I'm in the gym and I have all the coaches, all the owners, all the GMs come into the gym and just evaluate everything I do. So yes, I want that experience.
You've got to have fun on the court. If you ain't having fun, then basketball ain't fun.
When I was young, I was sold on winning.
I was always serious on the court. As I got older, I realized that it was just a basketball game. Just go out there and have fun.
A lot of people I meet say, 'You remind me so much of Magic Johnson.'
You just got ta believe, i have never been a quitter in my life or in my career.
As long as you stay true to yourself and to who you are, you ain't in nobody's way.
Play hard, learn as much as I can and do what I do best. The rest will take care of itself I think.
I think I'm the most underrated superstar that's out there, but that doesn't matter to me.
I think going to college for that one year was probable the best thing I have ever done.
I want to retire in New York, let's be quite frank.
I think a lot of people jumped the gun when I said I wanted to be a free agent. And yeah, I want people to come to play in New York. I want them to want to play in New York. I want New York to be that place where guys want to come play.
Although you do look at the big picture, if you're dealing with the now, it can be kind of frustrating. You're losing basketball games, things not going the way you want it to go or should go, but at the same time we've just got to stay with it. Just stay positive, just stay focused, as a team, as a unit, because the ship easily can sink early.
As a good player in the inner city, you're always hearing people saying that you're better than you really are and that you don't have to do things like everybody else.
How can U fairly assess someone from the outside looking in .
.. majority of the times you will be wrong.
No one is perfect. I know there is stuff that I need to work on, and not just one thing, but my game overall. Everything can get better.
I just want to get on the court.
To go out there and play and have fun and hopefully win a championship. That's my goal.
We're still getting better as a team.
We're still learning how to play basketball as a team and how to win tough games.
A lot of people think that as a player, during the lockout, you just have your whole day free. It's not like that - especially for me. I wake up everyday, train in the morning from 9 a.m. to about 2 p.m. Then I have a business meeting here, have to meet this person there, it's non-stop for me.
Man, I think the sky is the limit for this team.
I'm a classical type of guy. Whatever's out at that point in time, I like it. I just put my own twist on it, and we go from there.
It [boxing] helps my hand-eye coordination, my stamina, my footwork, and it gives me that competitive edge and drive. And in the ring it's mano-a-mano. So it helps you build that arrogance, that cockiness, that confidence in yourself that the man that stands in front of you isn't going to beat you, and that translates to the court.
Denver is home to me, and to be recognized for my achievements in the sports community here is a great honor.
I just don't want to get used to feeling this feeling, you know, losing basketball games.
It will work out, somehow. That's a hell of a duo right there, Marbury, Crawford and Houston.
The new guys bring energy, intensity and emotion.
The last couple games, they showed what they can bring to the team.
You make your own party.
People only know what they see on TV.
People tend to grow fearful, when they taste failure, face a daunting challenge or fall ill. Yet, that is precisely the time to become even bolder. Those who are victors at heart are the greatest of all champions!!!!
The NBA's a Fortune 500 company. That's how you look at it. And all the other Fortune 500 companies out there in the world, you don't see their CEOs and COOs going to work with white tees and baggy clothes and stuff like that. So I have to take that same approach.
Allen Iverson is a ball hog. You will never win a championship with him on your team.
Leadership is something I was born with.
I have my own identity as a player.
Any decision I make is the biggest decision of my life.
Success is the result of psychologically preparing for it, prior to achieving it!
I can't palm a basketball.
The only person I ever wanted to meet was Muhammad Ali.
And of all the people I've ever met, he's the one who most impressed me. It's tough to listen to him. You gotta have patience. But you see how strong his mind is. Even now, he's one of the most intelligent people on the planet.
These close games that we're losing, the teams are not beating us. We're kind of beating ourselves.
I'm laid back, I take my time, get the job done.
Lebron is high flying, dunking, passing the ball well. He's getting the job done, too. But we're different.
I'm me. I'm just out there being myself. I like having fun. But at the same time, I bring everybody together. So I'm really -- or I try to be -- like the glue of the team.
I kind of knew Cleveland was going to get the No.
1 pick. I think they rigged it. No, don't quote me on that.
Every year it's been people saying I can't do this or I can't do that.
Y'all will see something different, I can tell you that.
Without a doubt, any opportunity I have to build that up in New York, I'd do it.
I told people all the time, always say, 'If it takes me taking a pay cut, I'll be the first one on James Dolan's steps saying take my money and let's build something strong over here.'
There weren't any sports figures that I idolized because I didn't really believe in myself back then or think that I could make it here. There were some regular people in my neighborhood that I looked up to growing up but that was it.
I understand the NBA and the role I play on my team.
I know that I have to play a leadership role and do whatever I have to do to win.
People look at me like I'm on my way out of the game. I'm just getting started.
