I’ve played in bands myself, and sat on the floor photographing some of the greatest bands in the world while they rehearse.

I can open the floor for other guys. I’ve always put the team first.
The advent of so much dribbling has created a different kind of player, and it starts at a very early age. We have so many gifted ball handlers. Everything is pick-and-roll.

I remember lying on the floor of my room, staring at a black-and-white television for most of the ’80s – watching ‘Diff’rent Strokes,’ ‘Facts of Life,’ ‘Silver Spoons,’ Saturday morning cartoons, and ‘Murder, She Wrote’ while eating an insane amount of Stouffer’s French bread pizza. I was sucked into it all.
The floor exercise is a way to express your personality.

What makes me unique is my ability to adapt to different situations and switch onto smaller guards and stay out there.

When you have 20,000 people yelling and screaming at you, four other guys can concentrate on the floor. So every time I touch the basketball and everyone is yelling and chanting and doing things towards me, well, four other guys can concentrate.
This is UCLA. The expectations are higher here than anywhere. The amount of success both in terms of championships and wins as well as success off the floor has been second to none in college basketball. I knew that when I took this job. I know the expectation level, and no one has higher expectations than I do.
I’m a numbers guy, and I think numbers sometimes tell stories and sometimes they don’t. When you look at the NBA, when teams shoot 45% or better from the floor, what is their record? And if they shoot under that what is their record?

When I was playing, I had that passion and fire, cussing everybody out, but I had the opportunity to change that being out on the floor. But now that I’m coach, I can still have my passion, but I just have to tone it down.
You run the floor. Kick the ball out, repost, keep moving around, search it out, get to the offensive board. You’ve got to sprint around. You learn when teams are double-teaming you – that’s what you have to do. You have to make the right play.
When it comes to the younger generation, anything on the floor I’ll criticize – not playing hard, not doing this, fighting, not giving your all. Off the floor, you guys are on your own.

When I was first started, when I was eighteen, I wrestled for a company that had a very hardcore fanbase and demanded a lot from its wrestlers. So, every single match, I would do every move possible.

There is this strange fog of being a young man that I would refer to as soft time. Time does not go forward there.

I’ll sit on the floor and cry if I’m having a meltdown. I don’t care.

Always bake in the center of the oven. A pan placed too close to the bottom of the oven will receive more heat radiating from the oven floor, baking it faster from the bottom. The reverse is true of something baked on the top rack. Always bake in the center for the most even baking and browning all around.
My mother ran the household. In grade school, I came home crying one day. She said, ‘What’s wrong?’ and I said, ‘This kid said he was going to jump on me.’ She grabbed me and slammed me on the floor. ‘If you don’t go out there and stand up for yourself, it’s going to be me and you.’ I didn’t want that to happen.

Ever since third grade – I never even noticed it until after the game – people were telling me how crazy my dad is.

I have high heels in my bags if I need them for a shoot. But I like sneakers. I like being comfortable. I like to sit on the floor with my team and work. I don’t like to sit in fancy chairs. It’s really important to the culture of my company that people understand who they’re working for.
I love to vacuum. There’s just something so satisfying about hearing detritus sucked up into a vacuum. Sand makes such a great sound when being vacuumed off a hardwood floor.

Words impress me. If a man can speak eloquently and beautifully to me, I just melt on the floor.

When you see the floor and you understand the game and you’re trying to break it down with what you have in front of you, you can do it offensively and defensively. And you try to take advantage of it both ways. You see where the offense’s head is and you can kind of read what you want to do.
But I would lie on the floor and analyze everything. I’d listen to all the strings and the background vocals on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack and try to pick out the different instruments.

I’m a different kind of Republican. I’ve introduced a five-year balanced budget. I’ve introduced the largest tax cut in our history. I stood for ten and a half hours on the Senate floor to defend your right to be left alone.
You’re not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on.
I was training in an old garage – just a roof. And when its snowed, it would cover the floor, so I would have to clear this first. I didn’t have a punch bag.

I’d think the house was the source of great sadness or pressure. I knew it wasn’t. I knew it was just where I lived. But I’d walk up the stairs and the second floor was just desolate.

When we first started in Huntington Recreation with John Capobianco, we put four kids in the Golden Gloves finals. We didn’t even have a ring. We trained at Stimson Junior High School. They give us the gym three nights a week. We used to box in the gym – no ring, just on the gym floor.

And seal it permanently.

The pace is different on a film set. It’s slightly slower, allowing for a little more wiggle room. Sometimes there is a bit more room to explore and work on the floor.

I always say that I know I’ll be done playing basketball when I stop fighting on the floor. If you don’t play with that edge or that competitive spirit, you’re just another player out there. I can only speak for myself, but when I don’t play with that fight then I’m just ordinary.

The ideal job letter starts with a brilliant light. Then we realize that this brilliant light is actually sunlight, shafts of it, pouring through trees onto a thick bed of pine needles.

As an agent – and I don’t like the word – you get the perception that it’s all about money. And it’s not all about that.

It’s going to be labor-intensive and time-consuming, but you need to take all the books down and put them on the floor. Take them down and spread them in one area.
