We all love sports….well at least anyone who is reading this article probably does. But what makes us love sports? What makes us love basketball? Is it just watching the game itself or is there something more. I think that there is more to it than just the game.
At their best (just so we are clear, that means when they are not getting arrested) athletes inspire us with their accomplishments. Watching them succeed inspires us to work harder in our own lives. So, with that in mind, I came up with a short list of my favorite basketball quotes from basketball figures that I admire….figures that continue to inspire me. Here is the list:
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Until your good is better and your better is best. - Tim Duncan
Basketball doesn't build character it reveals it. - Author Unknown
Any American boy can be a basketball star if he grows up, up, up. - Bill Vaughn
Nobody roots for Goliath. - Wilt Chamberlain
Sometimes a player's greatest challenge is coming to grips with his role on the team. - Scottie Pippen
One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make a team. - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
This is the second most exciting indoor sport, and the other one shouldn't have spectators. - Dick Vertleib
There are, of course, many other great basketball quotes. If you know some or find some, be sure to bring them up on the Forum and we’ll add them to the list!
