"Never stop believing, Baby!"

Former Boston Celtics Coach Glenn "Doc" Rivers - as he gave KG a handshake as he was coming to the bench during our HISTORIC come from behind victory in Game 4 2008 NBA Finals.

The man practically willed that team to victory.

Will always love and appreciate what he did in BOS.

Alberto Salazar former marathon runner.  Something i used as a player and a coach.

Endurance is only how much pain the mind can withstand

No idea who deserves credit, but "Defense wins championships" is true and classic in my book.

‘Take this down. My name is Shaquille O’Neal, and Paul Pierce is the (very long expletive) Truth. Quote me on that, and don’t take nothing out. I knew he could play, but I didn’t know he could play like this. Paul Pierce is the Truth.’

None other than the Incomparable Shaquille O'Neal - as he gave our PP34 his enduring nickname.
