Philosophy & Style of Play
Greatness is not about someone who has the ability to be great. Greatness shows up when someone might not have the ability but finds a way to succeed. They out work their opponents. Greatness is not the guy who suppose to be all-world and you have to try and talk him into something. Greatness is the guy who has maybe just enough talent to be on the court but thinks he’s great, and willing to do whatever he can do to contribute to make the team better.
