Ray Lewis motivational speech to the Stanford basketball team

Here is the Ray Lewis motivational speech that Lewis gave the Stanford basketball team before they took on UMass last night at Madison Square Garden. I think Lewis is one of the best motivational speakers out there. Stanford won the game vs. UMass and I am sure this speech by Lewis had a lot to do with it.

Stanford now will take on Minnesota for the NIT title on Wednesday night. My favorite quote by Lewis is when he talks about "being pissed off for greatness."

Below the videos is the full transcript of Lewis' speech.

Click here to see another great speech from Lewis to the Elon football team.

I can't thank you guys for the opportunity. Let me tell you something,if tomorrow wasn't promised, what would you give for today? Forget everything else. Forget everything else. Forget that there was any sunlight left. What would you spend today thinking about? Yourself? Or the man that's beside you? Or the man that you know you'd give everything in your heart for?

We get one opportunity in life. One chance in life to do whatever you're gonna do. To lay your foundation. To make whatever mark you're gonna make. To leave whatever legacy you're gonna leave. Leave your legacy! And it's found through effort.

Wins and losses come a dime a dozen. But effort? Nobody can judge effort. Effort is between you and you. Effort ain't got nothing to do with nobody else. So that team that think they ready to se you? They think what they seen on film. They ain't saw what film shows. Because every day is a new day! Every moment is a new moment!

So now you got to go out and show them that I'm a different creature now than I was five minutes ago. Cause I'm pissed off for greatness! Because if you ain't pissed off for greatness, that mean you ok with being mediocre. Ain't no man in here ok with bring just basic. So let's do what we do. Tonight, we ain't gotta worry about taking no breaks!

Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website could undeniably
be one of the very best in its niche. Amazing blog!

Currently it seems like Expression Engine is the top blogging platform available right now.
(from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
"You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
off topic but I had to tell someone!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd definitely
appreciate it.

Ray Lewis sounds like a moron in that speech. Nothing he says makes any sense. If an elementary child spoke like that in any context he would flunk. Joe Flacco didn't even understand what he was saying.
