Quotes about Michael Jordan
I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.
Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.
Make It Happen

The game of basketball has been everything to me. My place of refuge, place I've always gone where I needed comfort and peace. It's been the site of intense pain and the most intense feelings of joy and satisfaction. It's a relationship that has evolved over time, given me the greatest respect and love for the game.

If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
My father used to say that it's never too late to do anything you wanted to do. And he said, 'You never know what you can accomplish until you try.'
Never Too Late
My attitude is that if you push me towards something that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength.
You have competition every day because you set such high standards for yourself that you have to go out every day and live up to that.
There is no such thing as a perfect basketball player, and I don't believe there is only one greatest player either.
If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.
To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don't isolate.
My heroes are and were my parents. I can't see having anyone else as my heroes.
I've always believed that if you put in the work, the results will come.
There is no 'i' in team but there is in win.
Be true to the game, because the game will be true to you. If you try to shortcut the game, then the game will shortcut you. If you put forth the effort, good things will be bestowed upon you. That's truly about the game, and in some ways that's about life too.
Ultimately, if you can say that I'm a bad owner and we're winning championships, I can live with that. But if we're not making the playoffs and we're spending and losing money, then I have to look in the mirror and say maybe I'm not taking the necessary steps to doing what it takes to run an organization.
I've never been afraid to fail.
The game is my wife. It demands loyalty and responsibility, and it gives me back fulfillment and peace.
