My name is Justin. I'm 14 years old, playing basketball, and an active user on this wikia.
In my time here, I have learned many things, I have matured quicker than my peers, and learned a lot about life.
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do"
"Never say never, because limits, like fears are often just an illusion."
"Giving up is the worst thing that you could do."
"Pick yourself up off that ground. Get right back up everytime you fall. Because suffering is part of success."
"The people who have failed over and over again, have become succesful."
"Basketball is not just a sport, it's an art. You gotta perfect it, no matter the circumstances."
"To come through under pressure is something you have in you, all you have to do is believe"
"I've missed over 9000 shots in my career, I've been trusted to make the game winner 26 times and missed, I lost almost 300 games in my career. I have failed over and over again in my life. That is why I succeed.
"People wish, dream, or want it to happen, but there are people like me that make it happen"
"Pain is in your mind, block it out, because as you go through this tunnel, it's always a pursuit for happiness."
"When you want to succeed, as bad as you want to breath, then you'll be succesful."
"Pain is temporary. It may last for a minute, an hour, a month, or even a year. BUT EVENTUALLY it will subside."
"All or nothing"
"Hard work beats talent any day of the week"
"Look up, get up, and never give up"
"Hard work beats talent"
"Regular people do regular things. You're not regular."
"It takes every last bit of energy in you to win."
"You don't have to be them most talented or strongest player to win the game. To win the game, you must have passion, determination and trust for yourself and your teammates."
"You see, what you'll hear from all come from behind underdog is this. The other, may in fact be the favorite. The odds may be stacked against you fair enough. But what the odds don't know is that this. THIS isn't a math test. This is a completely different kind of test. Where.. passion always has this funny way of trumphing logic. So before you step up to the starting line, before the whistle blows, and the clocks start ticking. Just remember that out here, the results don't always add up. No matter what the stats may say, or the experts may say, or what the commentators may have predicted. When the race is on, all bets, are OFF! Don't be surprised when somebody decides to, flip the script. And take a pass, from yelling uncle. And then suddenly, as the old saying goes, we've got ourselves a game."
"Give me a star to reach for, and tell me what it takes. And I'll go high my feet won't touch the ground."
"It's not about how talented you are, how smart you are, or how great you are. It's about who wants it more"
