The only time I’ve ever been knocked out in my entire life was in a rugby game when I was about 13. I used to play on the wing. The opposing winger has the ball in his hand and he’s running full speed at me. I go down to tackle him and he jumps up and his knee hits my temple.

Years ago, I picked up figure skating. How hard could spins and jumps be, I thought? It’s just applied Newtonian physics.

I’ll try anything, but the pig testicles in Taiwan were a little much. Eh, it wasn’t half bad. There was this one dish I had there, the translation is, ‘The Monk Jumps over the Fence.’ It’s a fish dish with all these spices. It was beautiful, man – it was poetry. It had a whole story.
Steven Adams
Perhaps… I mean there are people who defend that it as an art. I don’t. I like it but it’s not an art form as far as I’m concerned, and yet it’s a similar thing, once you can’t land those jumps, you’re disqualified – that precludes it from ever becoming a serious art form.
Mark Morris
These big jumps take a big toll on the body, especially a young body. So, it’s kind of risk or reward, I guess.

Mark Schlereth
When I was younger, my coach, Liang Chow, made all the decisions. I would go to the gym for practice, do exactly what Chow told me to do, go home, come back and start all over again. If Chow told me to do 50 squat jumps, I did 50 squat jumps.
