Alan Alexander Milne, better known as A. A. Milne, was an author and poet from England, who was particularly famous for being the creator of the character Winnie the Pooh. Milne was educated at the University of Cambridge and initially worked as a playwright; however it was as the writer of Winnie the Pooh in 1926 that he became famous. It was followed up by The House at Pooh Corner two year later. Other than that, he was a prolific writer who wrote children’s short story and poetry collections, newspaper columns, plays and had also been a columnist for the popular magazine Punch.
If I'm playing for North Carolina, and Eric Montross goes up and dunks one, I might jump up and hug him like I was his girlfriend. It's supposed to be that way, in my opinion. Players should be able to express themselves and grow.
I've always gotten a kick out of leading my team in assists.
I've always worked hard at being a well-rounded player.
People don't realize this, but throughout my career, I grew up patterning my game after Scottie Pippen's. I admire him for his versatility.
I've always been a big-time Scottie Pippen fan. That was my guy growing up!
I want to be a guy who helps the team a lot of different ways.
Michigan is a proud university.
I realize everything's on me as far as what kind of player, person, and student I'm going to be.
I'd just shoot until I got tired. I wanted to improve my outside shooting and my ball handling. I wanted to improve everything.
I felt I could have been the kind of player Denver needed, but there were too many things going on with the team.
The idea of playing the point and leading a team to the NBA championship is what drove me to get up every day and work on my game as a kid.
Most of the time, before you get traded, there are rumblings. I wasn't totally surprised that I was going to get traded - I anticipated it happening. And I wasn't surprised that I got traded to the Knicks, either.
