These guys were so competitive. You couldn’t play for an hour and a half with them frothing at the mouth, because they’d kill each other. A regular NBA team, if you’re lucky, has one or two of these guys. We had twelve. They don’t want to lose a drill, don’t want to lose a shooting game, don’t want to lose anything.
— Because I love oral histories, and because (as an NBA fan) I have a great interest in the Dream Team, and because GQ published an oral history of the Dream Team, obviously I have to link to it right away. The entire thing is fantastic, just chock full of delightful quotes and morsels. (Also: “You ever watch a lion or a leopard or a cheetah pouncing on their prey?” It’s a really great read.)
