Sue Wicks QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
As far as starting or not starting, that means more to some players than others. And if it means more to someone else, I think you should let them start and just go out there and do your job when it's your turn.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
Cheryl Miller came along and we could see her on TV. She was like the biggest star in women's basketball, ever.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
Every year I try to keep in excellent shape and improve some part of my game. I play in the offseason overseas to keep my game tuned up and hopefully improve a little in some area.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
For anyone to go outside of their culture and experience another culture is a great thing. It really enriches your life to be able to say I lived in Italy for a year, or I studied Japanese, or I was there for this political crisis. It's great for you not just as a basketball player, but as a person.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
For me, being a starter doesn't matter. Of course, I'd like to be in at the end of the game, to be a big part of the team, and to play as many minutes as I can play. But starting and coming off the bench are two different challenges.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
For me, the money isn't a big issue. I'm at the end of my career and I'm just happy to play.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
I even believe if you're killing a team, you shouldn't stop. You should respect your opponents enough to play 100 percent the whole time. And by the same token, if you're getting killed by the other team, you should never quit.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
I think it's good to talk more about the team atmosphere, chemistry, and leadership, because not everyone is cut out to be a star.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
I think sportsmanship is knowing that it is a game, that we are only as a good as our opponents, and whether you win or lose, to always give 100 percent.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
I try to never lose sight of what a special time it is to be a women's basketball player.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
I was a Knicks fan since I was a kid, so those players were my real idols. I grew up watching the guys play all the time.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
I was surprised I won the award because I've always been a very aggressive player and I earn my share of fouls on the court. I play rough, and because I'm an older player, of course I use tricks on the younger players.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
I was very pleased that the positive things about me and my game outshone the aggressive style of play I use. I would never tone that down, because I believe in that style of play, and I believe that you can play rough on the court and still be a good sport.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
I'd like to coach the Liberty. That's my dream. But maybe I'd coach a college team. Either way, I'd like to stay involved in sports and to coach.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
In preseason camp, there are no friends. when newcomers arrive trying to take not only your job, but maybe your best friend's job, you work together to try to help each other. Everyone is an outsider until you're given a uniform.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
It's funny, 'cause it seems like just yesterday that I was the youngest player just starting out. But now there are young players all over the league, and they'll ask me questions about playing overseas or finding an agent.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
It's not to hurt anyone, but basketball can be rough.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
Now it's harder to recover after games and from long trips. Because no matter how hard you work out and keep in shape, when you get older, it takes a little longer for an injury to heal or get over fatigue. So I have to work hard to keep in shape, eat right, and take care of myself.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
Once you know what to expect, it gets easier and easier. And now I know what I have to do to prepare for each season and what to expect through each season.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
Players should know that if you can't make the contribution of the winning shot, that your attitude every day when you come to practice, or the positive contribution you make through cheering and keeping up team morale, is just as important in the overall picture.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
Rookies are also coming in from college programs as big stars, whereas when we came in, we were just happy to be there. We were happy to be playing in a big gym, to be on television, to be playing in America.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
Sometimes people think that if you're always helping people up and never hit someone with a hard foul, you're automatically a good sport. I don't believe that.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
There's a lot of room to grow, and the women who believe they're worth it are the ones who are going to make good things happen during the next period of WNBA growth.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
There's lots of charity stuff that I can do. There are actually a million things to do here, but it would be very hard for me to stop going overseas, because I've been doing that for longer than I've been playing in the WNBA.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
To be on television and have my nieces and nephews see me, and seeing them wear my shirt to the games and be proud, it's so sweet. Sometimes it feels like it's just a dream.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
We used to all play baseball because my neighborhood was very into sports. But nobody played basketball except one guy down the street. And I went down there one day, we started shooting baskets, I fell in love with the sport, and I went out for the j.v. team when I was in 9th grade.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
When I come off the bench, I'm looking to add energy, and then I play defense and rebound. Also, at the end of the game, I have the experience to go out there and help us win.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
When I see these young girls who are dreaming the dream that I'm living, it's very very exciting and it puts a big smile on my face.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
When I went to college, we had a very good local following, but stations only televised two or three NCAA games a season. And when I went to Europe, once in a while we had a good crowd, but usually not.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
When we leave Madison Square Garden, it probably takes me another hour to get through the fans, signing autographs and stuff.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
When you're an older player, that's part of your job-to give a little mentoring, give a little advice, and to help the players-they can be a little intimidated or overwhelmed, especially when they're coming to New York City.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
You have to demand things and believe you're worth more. And once you do demand them, you're usually going to get them. The players who first came in were very humble because we came from obscurity. Today's players, on the other hand, have a sense of entitlement.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
You shouldn't just work on your jump shot. You should work on being a better person, a better teammate, and a better friend.
Quotation of Sue Wicks
Your role changes as coaches ask you to increase your role or diminish it. And depending on how you look at it, either can be a positive.
