There was a time last season, late at night, when he could not sleep and was wondering about such things as how to make basketball, or at least his team, perfect. "You know, what I'd really like to have is a talent," he mused. "What I'd like to be is someone like Glen Campbell. Or did you see Andy Williams at the game tonight? I thought about it. Wouldn't you like to be someone like him? You just stand up and sing, and do it so easily and naturally, just like we're sitting here talking. That would be some talent to have. And that's what I'd like to have, a talent."
In the case of Mr. Motta, that's being too modest.
