Andre Iguodala, on the key to success:

"This continues to go under the radar, but communication is key defensively when you're guarding players like that. It's not me stopping him; it's us as a team trying to get stops and trying to make life tough for him. So when we communicate and we front on guys a certain way or we scheme the right way or we're communicating, that's when we have the most success."
Putting Andre Iguodala on LeBron James helped the Warriors close out the Cavaliers in last year's Finals. Now that James has more help, guarding him won't be so simple this time.

Steve Kerr reminds us that colleagues are not fungible:

"I mean you develop this bond where you're together every day at home and on the road, you go out to dinner on the road, and you watch tape together, you joke, you talk s--- to each other, and you laugh constantly, and then that person goes to a new team. That's it. You see them four times a year, maybe twice a year. I'm gonna miss the daily interaction with Luke. He's going to be tough to replace."

Chris Herrington, on the Griz season:

"Life gave them lemons. They made lemon juice. There was really nothing else they could do. At some point, the season ceased being about triumph or surprise and just became about survival, about maintaining your dignity while pounding a rock that may never break. It’s like that sometimes. Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life."

Luke Walton, on the process:

"That's part of the message we give the team every year. Every year is completely different. There'll be new players next year. There'll be different coaches. Every year is uniquely special. You have to enjoy and embrace the journey of trying to do what we're doing instead of just constantly thinking about the end goal. Have fun with each other and embrace what a special time this is."

"All the rest in the world doesn't protect you from an unexpected wet spot on the floor."

Steve Kerr, on ambition:

"All the guys I hire for the staff are cut from the same cloth. They're all unselfish and committed to the team but ambitious and hardworking. I think ambition can go two ways. You can be ambitious and be part of the team, or you can be ambitious for your own career. I like people who are ambitious for the team."

Software development lessons from WWII:

" Nothing is more infuriating to men who have fought a hard exhausting battle under adverse conditions, seen friends killed or wounded, and seen others make almost superhuman efforts, than to be told that some general in the rear thinks they ought to try harder."

Ronald Spector, Eagle Against The Sun, p314.

Dan Kim, on Java:

"I’ve been a Java guy for 15+ years.
I know it’s not a particularly cool thing to say, but for all its warts, Java has served me well. And as Android’s native language, it’s been a true blessing in disguise. Who knew all those years of writing shitty webapps would turn into such an awesome mobile opportunity?"
After a month with Kotlin, I finally understand what the hell DHH has been saying about Ruby all these years!

Steve Kerr, on living in the moment:

"There’s no guarantee that any of us are going to be here tomorrow night. I hate to say that, but it’s true.

Guys get hurt, people get sick, things happen. One of our approaches as a team is to enjoy the process and to take joy out of what we’re doing – we’re among the luckiest people on earth."


(Photo courtesy the AP’s Janie McCauley.)OAKLAND–I didn’t expect this kind of emotion coming out of Steve Kerr’s Coach of the Year presser, and I’m not sure GM Bob Myers and Kerr expected it, either. But once Myers got the microphone… Continue Reading →

Ken Berger, on Kobe's motivation:

"It was simply the process of showing up and putting in the work -- a restless curiosity about what steps were needed, in what order, and at what time to produce a result he could live with."
Like he said he would, Kobe nailed the perfect last scene in the Kobe Bryant Saga.

Dan Lyons, on attracting recent college grads:

"How can you get hundreds of people to work in sales and marketing for the lowest possible wages? One way is to hire people who are right out of college and make work seem fun. You give them free beer and foosball tables. You decorate the place like a cross between a kindergarten and a frat house. You throw parties. Do that, and you can find an endless supply of bros who will toil away for $35,000 a year.

On top of the fun stuff you create a mythology that attempts to make the work seem meaningful. Supposedly millennials don’t care so much about money, but they’re very motivated by a sense of mission. So, you give them a mission. You tell your employees how special they are and how lucky they are to be here. You tell them that it’s harder to get a job here than to get into Harvard and that because of their superpowers they have been selected to work on a very important mission to change the world. You make a team logo. You give everyone a hat and a T-shirt. You make up a culture code and talk about creating a company that everyone can love."
