Video: Jimmy Valvano’s 1993 ESPY Speech

On the afternoon of the Jimmy V Classic, it’s only appropriate to link a clip of Jim Valvano at the 1993 ESPYs, quite possibly my favorite sports speech of all-time.

I know you’ll see it on TV tonight, but it’s worth watching twice.

“Gentlemen, we’ll be successful this year if you can focus on three things, and three things only: Your family, your religion, and the Green Bay Packers.”
