There are not a lot of athletes that are going to get their own shoe.
– Keyshawn Johnson
I’m not a savior.
I know talent when I see it. I know frauds when I see ’em. I know players that can play and can’t play.
Only a handful of professional football athletes have had a signature shoe, unlike in basketball where there have been a number of guys.
The championship, in my eyes, in television, is obviously an Emmy.
When I’m on television, I’m talking to millions of people, so the conversation is totally different. My words are different. My diction is different because now I’m really talking American English and not homeboy English.
I was the first athlete, from a training standpoint, with Adidas to have their own signature shoe.
When I came out of college, shoe companies can identify marketable people, and I think I was identified as someone who could potentially move some units and merchandise.
So many times in my life, people have tried to make me a failure.
I never really called people out. It was more along the lines of teasing a person. It started for me in fifth grade on the basketball court.
The definition of swagger, in my opinion, is you have to have that arrogance, that confidence that you are the best out there at all times.
I’m not even thinking about going back to play football at all. My mind’s made up. I’m done.
I’m smart enough to know, ‘Don’t try and make any headlines.’
If you were ever to interview me after a football game or at a football game or around me during football season is totally different than when you catch me away from football.
How can you not respect somebody like me? If you don’t respect me, it’s because you got hatin’ all over you. If you don’t like me, you don’t like yourself.
There are already gay players in the NFL and have been for a while.
I’m trying to build a brand, so I can sell Keyshawn Johnson products in stores. You know, paint, rugs, carpet, drapery, fabrics, blankets, towels, hardware, plates.
The wide receiver position is such a complex position.
At the end of the day, all I want to do is protect my kids.
No man is invincible.
