What’s Really Important

“What you are as a person is far more important than what you are as a basketball player.” – John Wooden

The above (quote) is from John Wooden, Hall of Famer and one of the greatest basketball coaches of all time. The Greenwich Stars Basketball Organization preaches this and uses this quote often in our regular messages to our players and families.  Yes, we are a large and successful basketball organization – but there’s a lot more to life than basketball. We want our Greenwich Stars basketball players to be the best they can possibly be off the court. What you are as a person is much more important than how you play the game of basketball. We always tell our basketball family: “Be an honorable person, be a proud and good person, be a kind and caring person, love your family and friends and always try your hardest.”
