Personal Quote:

On Coach John Wooden's Pyramid of Success philosophy: At the time it was like, Pyramid Shmyramid, Where's the party at? Where are the girls at? I didn't want to hear anything about principles and living a life of integrity at that time. But as you get older, and you have kids, and you try to pass on life lessons, now it becomes a great learning tool.
