1 - Jalen Hurts | WIN OR LEARN


After losing a close battle to the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2023 Super Bowl, Jalen Hurts was asked one final question in his post-game interview by @GioThePodcaster. He was asked, “What is one lesson that you learned from this game that you will take with you?”


Hurts said you want to cherish these moments with the people you’ve come so far with; the people you do it with and do it for. He said they had a big-time goal that they wanted to accomplish and they came up short, but the beautiful part about it is everyone experiences different pains and different agonies of life, but you decide if you want to learn from it and use it as a teachable moment.

Dejounte Murry is a young NBA star, and when he was trying to find his way on the court, he got some good advice from champion and Finals MVP teammate, Kawhi Leonard.


He said, “Kawhi is part of the reason I made the defensive team in my second year. He told me, ‘Don’t worry about trying to get 15-20 points, go make the all-defensive team. I guarantee you - defense gets you on the court, and if you are on the floor, you will have to play offense too.’”

Grant Hill was an absolute star at Duke, and he had a great start to his NBA career before injuries slowed him down. In an interview on the Knuckleheads podcast, Hill talked about competing and fighting on the court.


He said, “We as athletes are naturally conditioned to fight. We can be playing against Michael Jordan, and we believe we have a chance and feel like we are going to win.”


He also said, “When you have your weapons, and you step out there, you have to have a belief, I don’t care who you are going against, you have to feel like I’m the best player, or I’m going to win this matchup.


He finally said, “You know when somebody is scared, and you know when somebody wants to compete. You respect when someone wants to square up with you and compete. You may win or they may win, but you respect that they aren’t scared.”
