“You can’t control it if your shots don’t go in, but you can control your energy.”
“First of all I struggled for three years. Really for two years, and then when George Karl got there (to Seattle) my struggles ended because I got a basketball coach that let me do what I wanted to do.”
“Playgrounds are the best place to learn the game (basketball) because if you lose, you sit down.”
On his playing days at Rutgers:
“We were a pressing team, we were a fast-breaking team. We had an open offense where we shared the ball and we had equal opportunity to score.”
We have to give 100 percent on the field, even if we’re tired. We’ve got to give 100 percent to help the team.
When we had the ’76 and ’77 teams that scored so many points we were as simple as could be. If we didn’t get the shot on the fast break we showed a little motion and then we used the penetration.
