My greatest gift that I have in life is basketball.
You have to develop your whole game to completion.
I've always believed no matter how many shots I miss, I'm going to make the next one.
You're always at war with the guy on the other bench. You pick up their patterns. That's what I got the most out of this year. I know what other coaches like to do.
