Just do the things that have made you successful. Just continue to be positive. Just continue to attack this health crisis the way you attacked the basketball court, the way you attacked your music career. Just continue to do the positive things that have made you successful.

There's not a soul that I can remember — I'm talking about our football, basketball, baseball teams — who greeted each day with a smile as much as Wayman Tisdale. The cup is always half-full with Wayman. Really, I never saw him down. I never saw him where he was dragging. I never saw him where he was depressed.

It just seemed like life was made for Wayman Tisdale.

He greets each day with a smile; I can't see it changing. He's gone though his whole life on the sunny side of the street. I don't think there would be anything that would change.
