If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it.— Michael Jordan
Glamorous Basketball Training quotations
There are only two options regarding commitment; you’re either in or you’re out.
Get the fundamentals down and the level of everything you do will rise
Great players are willing to give up their own personal achievement for the achievement of the group. It enhances everybody.
One man cannot make a team.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
There is no such thing as life in-between.
Basketball is a game of conditioning and fatigue.
That's why I believe in practicing a team to train when it's exhausted.
Do your best when no one is looking.
Everyone wants to win, but not everyone is willing to prepare to win.
I only weigh 220, so I have to do something to keep from being tossed around by all the guys who weigh 250 and more. I train hard, but I don't try to get too big.
I run in the morning, lift weights in the afternoon, basketball training at night, and then lift weights again at night.
I've written in every imaginable location;
a repurposed closet, the kitchen table, the bleachers while my kids had basketball practice, the front seat of the car when they were at soccer. In airports. On trains. In the break room when I was supposed to be wolfing down dinner. In the back of classrooms when I was supposed to be paying attention.
I know, basketball is a dance. I didn't understand the significance of that type of training at first. I was supposed to read poems.
I painted my toenails before Dennis Rodman.
One time at training camp, I stubbed my toe and the nail came loose. My mom gave me some toenail hardener, and I painted over it. I scored 40-something points that night, so it became a ritual. Paint my toenails, score 40 points.
No one runs fast without an extreme amount of training.
Like today, you see kids walking around dribbling a basketball. I had a bag with track shoes in it, and I used to go to the track every day.
I don't have the physical talent those guys have. My hard work has made me very good.
