Post by John Rancke

To execute his plans, he recruited Charlie Scott, the university’s first African-American scholarship basketball player. We bring to you some thought-provoking quotable quotes and sayings by the legendary quotes shared both within and outside the court. Read through the quotes and thoughts by Dean Smith and get inspired.

“If you treat every situation as a life and death matter, you’ll die a lot of times. “

“Basketball is a team game. But that doesn’t mean all five players should have the same amount of shots. “

“I’d never get elected if people in North Carolina realized how liberal I am.”

“There is a point in every contest when sitting on the sidelines is not an option.”

“I think the real free person in society is one that’s disciplined. It’s the one that can choose; that is the free one. “
