Reggie's great quote:
"I showed up each and every day to play. I played in 80 percent of my games, maybe more. I played hurt. You never knew when someone was coming to an Indiana Pacers basketball game for the first time – maybe on a dare, maybe they had just gotten tickets – but you never knew if they were coming for the first time. And I always wanted that person to go away thinking, "Man, who was that 31? He's a really great player." I always wanted them to remember that they had an enjoyable experience when they saw the Indiana Pacers play, and that always drove me to come to the gym early, get my warmup done early, mentally prepare, watch my tape, get ready and it's worked for 18 years."
