Cuban’s Words Of Wisdom

I was at a blackjack table in Vegas, and I didn’t know whether to hit or stick. The dealer says to me, “No balls, no babies.” Either you’re in or you’re out, right? The other thing was something from Bobby Knight—not his original saying, but he said, “Everybody’s got the will to win, but it’s only those with the will to prepare that actually do win.” Everybody’s going to tell you, “I’ve got the will to win; I’m passionate.” If you really want to know where your future is, look at your effort.
