"The team is the star, never an individual player."


--John Wooden

In basketball, it has me made into a team player. I constantly try to look for the open person that has the better chance of scoring a basket than just try to shoot it myself.

In life in general, the quote has also made me into a person that's not selfish. Instead of just trying to do things that benefit only my self, I do things that benefit humanity as a whole.

The Great Coach Wooden
by: Joe Waters - webmaster

Coach John Wooden is not only the greatest basketball coach in the history of the game, but he also knew how to teach his players how to be responsible men on and off the court.

This inspirational basketball quote sums up Coach Wooden's approach to coaching, his team and the game in general. The team is and must always be the focal point, not the individuals of the team. Teams and players that realize this and can follow this simple rule are generally the most successful.

Thanks for the great basketball quote Gary.
