The Lineup: 8 superstitions you didn’t know ESPN commentators have

1. Jay Williams, ESPN college basketball analyst

“Every day since my junior year at Duke, I’ve written ‘Be Great Today’ in the palm of my hand. I was listening to Coach K [Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski] and he was talking about saying we should strive to be great every single day, and I started writing it down on my hand as a reminder. How many times do you look at your hand throughout the day? It’s always there in your face so it serves as a constant reminder to keep positive thoughts in your head.”
