“I brought that to their attention because it's like a family thing,” Spears said. “Their sisters already have one. I said, ‘Just think, your sister got one, you got one, just think if you get two.'
“It's fired them up pretty good. Sometimes they're too fired up and they're missing layups and things because they're not being very calm.”
