"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."
"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."
"I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying."
"Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen."
"I never looked at the consequences of missing a big shot... when you think about the consequences you always think of a negative result."
