I have self-doubt. I have insecurity. I have fear of failure. I have nights when I show up at the arena and I'm like, 'My back hurts, my feet hurt, my knees hurt. I don't have it. I just want to chill.' We all have self-doubt. You don't deny it, but you also don't capitulate to it. You embrace it.
Winning takes precedence over all. There's no gray area. No almosts.
If you're afraid to fail, then you're probably going to fail.
I'll do whatever it takes to win games, whether it's sitting on a bench waving a towel, handing a cup of water to a teammate, or hitting the game-winning shot.
The only thing I'm afraid of is bees. I don't like bees. I'm allergic to them.
