"Every year you work is a failure": Watch this NBA star shut down a smug reporter with a valuable lesson on losing
I caught this clip of Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo I wanted to share. It's a similar conversation I have with my niece when a game doesn't go her way. Plus as conservatives, seeing any reporter get it thrown back in their face for any reason whatsoever gives us the warm fuzzies.
Though I cop to not knowing much about the NBA other than a) Giannis is really good, b) he's Greek (shout out Pantellis), and c) I'm supposed to fear the deer. The Bucks got knocked out of the playoffs. A reporter asked Giannis if it means they were failures.
Giannis is outstanding: “There’s no failure in sports. There’s good days, bad days, some days you are able to be successful, some days you are not, some days it is your turn, some days it’s not. That’s what sports is about. You don’t always win.” pic.twitter.com/aTnFpnGtdx

Do you get a promotion every year on your job? No, right? So every year you work is a failure, yes or no? No. Every year you work, you work towards something, towards a goal, right, which is to get a promotion, to be able to take care of your family. Provide a house for them or take care of your parents.
Exactly. You are either winning or you're learning. I got that from MMA coach Duke Rufous. He's out of Wisconsin too. It must be something in the cheese.
You lose a competition, sure. It's a competition. There can be only one winner, and if you aren't playing to win there's no point. But sometimes you're in the locker room next to the one they're spraying champagne on each other in.
What you do next is what matters.
There’s no failure in sports. You know, there are good days and bad days. Some days you are able to be successful, sometimes you’re not. Some days it’s your turn, some days it’s not your turn. ... We’re going to come back next year, try to be better, try to build good habits, try to play better, not have a ten-day stretch with playing bad basketball, you know, and hopefully we can win a championship.
A valuable lesson everyone from all walks of life can stand to remember.
