Leadership is diving for a loose ball, getting the crowd involved, getting other players involved. It's being able to take it as well as dish it out. That's the only way you're going to get respect from the players.

Other quotes by Larry Bird

Push yourself again and again. Don't give an inch until the final buzzer sounds.

But it is a black man's game, and it will be forever.

I mean, the greatest athletes in the world are African-American.

I'm a loner.

When it gets down to it, basketball is basketball.
