D'Antoni: Finding something positive in every situation

Loved the story in today's NY Daily News about Mike D'Antoni.  A couple of highlights:

On humility:  "At the end of a chess game, the kings and the pawns all go back in the same box."

His mother on how she raised her kids:  "I'm not raising you to like me, I'm raising you for other people to like you"

On his attitude:  "He knows how to find something positive in every situation, and how to transfer that optimistic view to the people around him."
