He's showing the league what he's about. He's a really good point guard who does what's asked of him. You already know you're going to get good shooting out of him. But the way he's defending and running the ball club -- those are things every team wants. Free agency is going to be great for him this summer.

In the 21st Century, the anti-traditional marriage community is in league with the anti-life community, and together with the NAACP and other sympathizers, they are seeking a world where homosexual marriage and abortion will supposedly set the captives free.
It's just fun to have Mark in the league. He's easy to tweak.
One day he [Wagner] was batting against a young pitcher who had just come into the league. The catcher was a kid, too . The pitcher threw Honus a curve ball, and he swung at it and missed and fell down. Looked helpless as a robin. I was kind of surprised, but the guy sitting next to me poked me in the ribs and said, 'Watch this next one.' Those kids figured they had the old man's weakness, you see, and served him up the same dish - as he knew they would. Well, Honus hit a line drive so hard the fence in left field went back and forth for five minutes.
Well, I'm tired of being a wannabe league bowler. I wanna be a league bowler!
I lost the good stuff on my fastball. I had to come up with something to keep me in the league. The knuckler rescued me then.
I suppose that the first organized effort that might be considered something of civil rights was the Young Negroes' Cooperative League. Now, this offers certain contradictions at this point, perhaps, because it was stimulated by the writings of George Schayler who, at this point, is considered an arch-conservative, I understand.
I think that John is the best player in the league. We put a lot of trust in him and he has the green light. John is a terrific kid, a tremendous athlete and a fantastic leader. He will be on the field as long as he can physically handle it.
You have just got to face the facts, don't you? I face it head-on. I knew what I was coming in to. I didn't make the impact I hoped for and I believed in.
The thing I want to emphasize is this: We haven't done one thing that anybody else can't do. We have certain rules in the league. Here's the cap, here's the numbers, here's what you can spend. So everybody in the league can do what we're doing. It's just that many choose not to.
