Damn referees, I'll miss them less than anybody.
Finish last in your league and they call you idiot. Finish last in medical school and they call you doctor.
I don't have any tricky plays, I'd rather have tricky players.
I don't jog, if I die I want to be sick.
It was a hole in one contest and I had a three.
One day of practice is like one day of clean living. It doesn't do you any good.
The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off.
There are really only two plays: Romeo and Juliet, and put the darn ball in the basket.
You know what they call the fellow who finishes last in his medical school graduating class? They call him 'Doctor.'
I never substitute just to substitute. I play my regulars. The only way a guy gets off the floor is if he dies.
Coaches are creatures of habit. I knew a coach who got a deal going where his players had to run a mile in six minutes. I asked why. He said, 'gut check'.
I had a team where nobody could run it in six minutes and we won the NIT [National Invitation Tournament of New York].
I told [Johnny] Bench once, 'If you had come with me, you could be the principal of a high school by now'.
I asked [Bud] Koper after the game why he didn't show up to eat and he told me he wasn't hungry. If I had a rule that said you couldn't start or couldn't play if you missed the pregame meal, then we would have lost the game [Koper scored 44 points in a victory]. Sometimes it's better not to have that many rules.
Maybe it would be best for me to finish at 599. People seem to like you better when you finish just short.
