“There is no ‘I’ in team, but there is in win”

“There’s no ‘I’ in ‘team’” is a popular saying about teamwork, first cited in 1960. “There is no ‘I’ in team, but there is in win” is a sports saying that has been printed on many images. “There’s no I in TEAM, but there is in WIN!” was posted on the newsgroup alt.overlords
The “I in win” saying has been credited to basketball superstar Michael Jordan since at least 1999, but there’s no evidence that he was the first to say it.

Replying to @ikepigott
@ikepigott Oh, no! Not the “I” and “me” thing. Here’s one: There is no “I” in team, but there is in “win.” Okay, everybody groan in unison.
