Top Basketball Fans Quotes

Basketball Fans Quotes By Magic Johnson

You know I was a shy guy and people didn't know that and still don't know it today. I'm sure basketball brought my shyness out because of the fact that you have to do interviews, and that people are always talking to you in terms of the fans and everything. — Magic Johnson

Basketball Fans Quotes By Rushton

there is no stronger taboo today than talking about race. In many cases, just being accused of "racism" can get you fired. Yet, teachers in America know the races differ in school achievement; policemen know the races differ in crime rates; social workers know the races differ in rates of welfare dependency or getting infected with AIDS. And sports fans know that Blacks excel at boxing, basketball, and running. They all wonder why. Some blame poverty, White racism, and the legacy of slavery. Although many doubt that "White racism" really tells the whole story, few dare share their doubts. When it comes to race, do you really dare to say what you think? — Rushton

Basketball Fans Quotes By LeBron James

It's humbling to know that you have fans all over America and all over the world and they want you to play on their respective basketball team. It's very humbling that they respect the way I play the game of basketball. I can't discredit that. I can't say I don't enjoy it because you put in a lot of hard work to have fans. And for me to be a role model and for me to have fans all over is great. It's very humbling. — LeBron James

Basketball Fans Quotes By Bobby Knight

As I've said, basketball has been, I think, a real cooperative venture. There have been a lot of people that have been involved in it: coaches, administrators - not recently - fans and nobody, nobody any more so than students over the years. — Bobby Knight

Basketball Fans Quotes By Kevin Durant

I love Oklahoma. The fans have been with me every night. What more can you ask for? — Kevin Durant

Basketball Fans Quotes By Michael Jordan

The NBA is the strongest professional sports league in the world. The league and the game is bigger than any one person, Michael Jordan included, and they always will be. I hope that today players, especially our young players, continue to recognize that simple fact. Nothing is more important than the game itself and the fans who support it. — Michael Jordan

Basketball Fans Quotes By Shaquille O'Neal

Somebody out there was trying to use my language and trying to speak for me. Rather than have that happen, I thought I'd do it myself. It's a fun thing. It's a way for fans to connect. — Shaquille O'Neal

Basketball Fans Quotes By Mike Thibault

The University of Houston has made an excellent choice by hiring Ron Hughey as its new women's basketball coach.

Having watched him coach up close, I know his players will improve immensely and love learning from him. I look forward to following Houston Basketball in the years to come. — Mike Thibault

Basketball Fans Quotes By Don Meyer

Nobody travels better than Northern State fans and nobody knows the game better than Northern State fans. If I'd die and went to heaven and I was coaching, it would be at Wachs Arena. — Don Meyer

Basketball Fans Quotes By Allen Iverson

It's unfair because the people booing, I believe, wouldn't want to have their child booed. Fans don't understand our lives and what we go through. They don't look at us as humans. We love the fans because they support and love the game, but at the same time it hurts when they turn their back on us. — Allen Iverson

Basketball Fans Quotes By Don Haskins

I really did not think a thing about playing five black players to start the game; they were our best players and deserved to start. But if I knew all the misery it was going to cause me in the weeks following the game, I'd have thought long and hard about it. The players from Kentucky were gracious about it, but many of their fans and people from other parts of the country did not want to see it. — Don Haskins

Basketball Fans Quotes By Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

But people don't know if I can teach the game. I know I can. My experience in Oklahoma was positive. It opened my eyes to how the game is played - the interaction among players, fans and media, how all that works. You have to know about the business of the game and how the actions of players and coaches affect the business. I think I have it down now. — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Basketball Fans Quotes By Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

The Lakers fans have been great, even folks in the supermarket are welcoming me back! — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Basketball Fans Quotes By Hunter S. Thompson

March is a month without mercy for rabid basketball fans. There is no such thing as a 'gentleman gambler' when the Big Dance rolls around. All sheep will be fleeced, all fools will be punished severely ... There are no Rules when the deal goes down in the final weeks of March. Even your good friends will turn into monsters. — Hunter S. Thompson

Basketball Fans Quotes By Jim Larranaga

Just remember, their fans think their players are supermen. We'll we're the kryptonite, and we're going to win. — Jim Larranaga

Basketball Fans Quotes By Bill Laimbeer

I played in Joe Louis in a playoff game. I played there when the roof caved in for half a season. The facility is great for basketball because it goes straight up, so you feel like the fans are on top of you. — Bill Laimbeer

Basketball Fans Quotes By Neil Patrick Harris

We're trying to get as many people to become interested in seeing it, but if you like the theater and you're interested in seeing what live theater looks like in New York, you probably already set your DVR. It's gonna be a hard ask to get a bunch of college-basketball fans to tune in for three hours to watch the Tonys. — Neil Patrick Harris

Basketball Fans Quotes By Susan Cain

Studies show that the fear of public humiliation is a potent force. During the 1988-89 basketball season, for example, two NCAA basketball teams played eleven games without any spectators, owing to a measles outbreak that led their schools to quarantine all students. Both teams played much better (higher free-throw percentages, for example) without any fans, even adoring home-team fans, to unnerve them. — Susan Cain

Basketball Fans Quotes By Yao Ming

Every sound in the gym is so fantastic. The screams of the fans, the whistle of the ref, the teammates calling to each other, the sounds of the ball touching the wooden floor, the sneakers touching the floor, and the sounds of the fight, the muscle and the sweat. Oh, and the last one-when the ball goes through the net. Don't laugh at my sensitivity and romanticism - those sounds really attract me. — Yao Ming

Basketball Fans Quotes By Kim Kardashian

If you're a basketball player and you don't stop and take pictures with your fans, you can have an amazing game and everyone still loves you. — Kim Kardashian

Basketball Fans Quotes By Larry Bird

I can see why fans don't like to watch pro basketball. I don't, either. It's not exciting. — Larry Bird

Basketball Fans Quotes By Bob Cousy

Indiana gets credit for having the most rabid basketball fans in the union, but Maine is a very, very active basketball state. — Bob Cousy

Basketball Fans Quotes By Phil Wohl

Swish, the net sounded like the blast of a cannon, signaling the game was tied at 64. Dave then saw the second shot in his mind before even going into his pre-shot routine. The ball tickled the front rim, brushed against the backboard, and then dropped through the net. The home crowd erupted as Dave backpedaled toward the opposing rim. Central High attempted a last-second shot that fell short into Breslin's hands. The fans rushed onto the floor as the number two train came roaring into the station, bringing Dave back from his glorious past back into the oppressive heat of the present. — Phil Wohl

Basketball Fans Quotes By Larry Bird

You know when I played, you had me and Kevin (McHale) and some others throughout the league. I think it's good for a fan base because as we all know the majority of the fans are white America. And if you just had a couple of white guys in there, you might get them a little excited. — Larry Bird
