“Losing is just the worst feeling in life, at anything,” Curry said. “Cards. Golf. Basketball. Whatever it is.”
“I hate losing. I mean, it’s not even a question,” Jordan responded. “But I do respect losing, because losing is a part of winning. You’re never going to just win. You’ve got to lose to win.”
