It’s an exciting time for college sports and a chance for friends, family, and colleagues to challenge one with their bracket selections. In honor of the determination, hard work, and skill displayed during the tournament, let’s take a look at insights from basketball greats.

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot—and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan

“Don’t let winning make you soft. Don’t let losing make you quit. Don’t let your teammates down in any situation.” – Larry Bird

“In basketball, as in life, true joy comes from being fully present in each and every moment, not just when things are going your way” – Phil Jackson

“Great players are willing to give up their own personal achievement for the achievement of the group. It enhances everybody” – Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

“Don’t confuse your path with your destination. Just because its stormy now doesn’t mean you aren’t headed for sunshine” – Mike Krzyzewski
