Great players are willing to give up their own personal achievement for the achievement of the group. It enhances everybody.
Other quotes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
When I was 17, I worked in a mentoring program in Harlem designed to improve the community. That's when I first gained an appreciation of the Harlem Renaissance, a time when African-Americans rose to prominence in American culture. For the first time, they were taken seriously as artists, musicians, writers, athletes, and as political thinkers.
