Является лидером по количеству набранных очков в регулярном чемпионате за всю историю НБА . Также он больше, чем кто-либо был признан самым ценным игроком НБА . Больше всех принимал участие в матчах всех звёзд , 15 раз включался в символическую сборную всех звёзд и 11 раз — в символическую сборную защиты. Кроме того шесть раз выигрывал титул чемпиона НБА и дважды признавался самым ценным игроком финала. В 1995 году был введён в Баскетбольный Зал славы, а в 1996 году включён в число 50 лучших игроков за всю историю ассоциации.

„Your mind is what makes everything else work. Ваш ум — это то, что заставляет всё вокруг работать.“

„You have to be able to center yourself, to let all of your emotions go. Don’t ever forget that you play with your soul as well as your body.“

„One man can be a crucial ingredient on a team, but one man cannot make a team.“

„Many people are born into their religion. For them it is mostly a matter of legacy and convenience. Their belief is based on faith, not just in the teachings of the religion but also in the acceptance of that religion from their family and culture. For the person who converts, it is a matter of fierce conviction and defiance. Our belief is based on a combination of faith and logic because we need a powerful reason to abandon the traditions of our families and community to embrace beliefs foreign to both. Conversion is a risky business because it can result in losing family, friends and community support.“

„He had breath in him once,” he declared. “He is to be treated with respect, no matter the cost.” “Now is not the time for empty ritual,” Holmes thundered. “Now is precisely the time!” Douglas thundered back. “When we ourselves are empty, it is the ritual that turns us human again.“ Mycroft Holmes

„I looked down the line of the wonderfully successful people on either side of me and wondered if each of them had a Coach Wooden who, to quote President Obama, “helped make me who I am.” I hoped so, because without Coach, my life would have been so much less. Less joyous. Less meaningful. Less filled with love. Later“ Coach Wooden and Me: Our 50-Year Friendship On and Off the Court

„Pride goeth before destruction,” he quoted, “and a haughty spirit before a fall.“ Mycroft Holmes

„You cant win unless you learn how to lose.“

„The foolish will tread where the wise will not,” Holmes replied. “If we waited for the wisdom of this venture, Douglas and I would still be in London.” “To fools, then!” Little Huan exclaimed. “To fools!” the others declared.“ Mycroft Holmes

„The person who has some awareness of the past knows how to fashion a rudder and which direction land is.“ On the Shoulders of Giants: My Journey Through the Harlem Renaissance

„Many of the people I write about were deliberately left out of the history books that we were forced to read in school. For me, that history was "written wrong" and needed to be corrected. My intention was to make them visible so they could be role models for others. To show how each, in his or her own way, dribbled gracefully around that obstacle in the narrow corridor.“ On the Shoulders of Giants: My Journey Through the Harlem Renaissance

„I went back two weeks running, then three months after, just to be sure, and then a year after that. So punctual are they that they have trained the local birds to fly in for their breakfast.” Holmes sighed as he took a pull of his Partagás. “Rich or poor, Douglas, we are all creatures of habit.“ Mycroft Holmes

„Despite Coach's admonishment, some of us on the team smoked marijuana. I had been exposed to it back in New York and had occasionally indulged with my friends. At college, though, using it seemed hipper and more of a counterculture statement than just a way of getting high. Plus, it helped with my migraines, which were becoming more frequent.“

„Regarding faith, my adherence to Islam had not diminished over the years since my conversion, but I had modified it from the intense orthodoxy I had followed at first to a more streamlined version that I felt was more progressive and inclusive. I practiced quietly on my own without the need to proselytize. I had been able to separate my faith in the theology from using it to make a cultural statement about black Americans. My only interest in Islam was spiritual and ethical guidance, not politics. In“ Coach Wooden and Me: Our 50-Year Friendship On and Off the Court

„If you get yourself too engrossed in things over which you have no control, it’s going to adversely affect the things over which you have control.” His“ Coach Wooden and Me: Our 50-Year Friendship On and Off the Court

„If there is moral insanity," he said in a conspiratorial whisper, "then there may be the reverse, immoral sanity, if you will, that comes upon one suddenly, like a fever.“
