When playing water polo at my high school in San Diego during my sophomore year, our coach used to try to "motivate" us in bizarre ways. Trying to get us to elevate ourselves higher out of the water to the point he could see our belly buttons by using our legs in an egg beater like rotation, he further motivated us by saying that we should just imagine someone is shoving a Popsicle stick up our butts. I will never receive better words of wisdom in my life.
Whenever one of the players on my middle school football would get injured during practice and begin to cry and complain, our assistant coach would run over in his tiny shorts, with his foamy mouth and scream, "You think that's pain, boy! You think that's pain? Try having one of your testicles blown off in Vietnam!" (By the way, he showered in the away locker room after we played a game in the freezing rain, and it was true.)

How many NBA players have you slept with?
All of 'em, any of 'em that have been in front of me over all these years.
And Glen Rice is one of those players?
What do you remember about that night?
Rears his head and comes into the air space.
I see. That is very detailed. What did you say to him that initially caught his attention?
Drill baby drill.
