"If you never do anything to make yourself seen… like really seen, the type that makes people point, then you don’t deserve to be seen at all. That’s my theory, and not only on a basketball court, to look good while you’re doing it is just as important as doing it good, and combine both and you’ve got it made. Presence is where it’s at, but not the going out of your way to be noticed presence, but sneaky, shy presence (though it’s all a part, you’re still always aware). Presence like a cheetah rather than a chimp. They’ve both got it, but chimpy gotta jump his nuts around all day to get it, shy cheetah just sits in total nonchalance or moves a sec or two in his sexy strut."
