The most courageous Scottie Pippen quotes that will inspire your inner self
Sometimes a player's greatest challenge is coming to grips with his role on the team.
I've always led by example and I'm not that vocal.
The mailman doesn't deliver on Sundays.
It [would have] been very difficult. As I said, the rules ... but if the rules were put in place back when Michael Jordan was in his prime - no hand-checking, the game was more geared toward offense, wanting to promote scoring in the game - he could have probably got close. He did score 69.

I visualize the game. I think about who I am guarding, the things he likes to do.
I probably should've listened to Michael a year ago when he said that Charles will never win a championship because he doesn't show any dedication.
Michael Jordan is probably the greatest scorer to ever play in the game.
But I may go as far to say Lebron James may be the the greatest player to ever play the game.
I know sometimes I need to be more like M.
J., but M.J. also needs to be more like me. He needs to be the player he is with more my mentality.
