"It's not a failure. It's steps to success."

  • NBA superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo was extremely disappointed. After a tough battle, his number one seeded Milwaukee Bucks had just been knocked out of the playoffs by the eighth-seeded Miami Heat.   And then the question came from The Athletic reporter Eric Nehm: "Do you view this season as a failure?"
    • "You asked me the same question last year, Eric," replied Antetokounmpo. "OK. Do you get a promotion every year? On your job? No, right? So every year you work is a failure--yes or no? Every year you work, you work toward something. Toward a goal, right? Which is to get a promotion, to be able to take care of your family, to be able to, I don't know, um, provide the house for them or take care of your parents. You work toward a goal. It's not a failure. It's steps to success."
