Just be patient. Let the game come to you. Don't rush. Be quick, but don't hurry.
When people ask me what I miss most about the game, it's being in the locker room and getting to know the guys. Back in those days, we had roommates. We had to talk basketball and that was a great way to understand the game itself and form those lasting relationships.
Baltimore was like a small town when I got there - the Colts, the Orioles, guys like Frank Robinson, we all knew and respected each other. Everyone would cross paths at one point at Lenny Moore's Sportsman's Lounge, trading stories and having some fun.
One of my other nicknames was Thomas Edison, because I invented so many moves.
The game of basketball is one thing, but the image of the game is another thing.
