It’s Only Words #17 (LeBron to Haters)

Sadar betapa banyak penggemar NBA yang menginginkan ia tuk gagal, LeBron James mengatakan hal ini seusai kalah di game 6 Final NBA 2010-2011, “All the people that were rooting for me to fail, at the end of the day, tomorrow they have to wake up and have the same life that (they had) before they woke up today. They got the same personal problems they had today. And I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live and continue to do the things I want to do.”

Selamat bekerja keras kembali James :)

“Di liga profesional, tim yang sukses secara finansial bukanlah tim yang juara. Melainkan tim yang pemainnya selalu memberikan upaya 100 persen. Mengejar setiap bola lepas, memburu setiap rebound. Orang bisa melihat itu, dan akan menjadi penggemar fanatik kalau melihat itu. Tim seperti inilah yang justru sukses secara finansial, karena punya barisan pendukung banyak dan fanatis. Apa pun hasil yang mereka dapatkan.” Rob Beveridge, head coach Perth Wildcats.

As a point guard, you’ve got to catch that outlet pass, and in the time it takes to click the shutter of a camera, you’ve got to see where the other nine players are on the floor. Then your mind has to be working in terms of what lanes your teammates are going to fill, and who’s the best shooter and who finishes well. Then, when you get to the top of the key, you pretty much know in your mind — even though the defenders are trying to dictate what you do — what you want to do. When you’ve got a point guard with imagination and vision and the ability to create, basketball to the viewer almost becomes an art form.” Bob Cousy
