Getting ready to kick off 2016 version of Adidas Global. For many future NBA prospects - from around the world, this event is where they get their introduction to standardized athletic testing.
Last week I spoke with one of our partners MAXSC out of Seattle. We talked training testing etc. In that discussion he showed me a message board that he came across that I really liked.
Here’s what it read:
10 THINGS THAT REQUIRE ZERO TALENT:
- Being on time
- Work ethic
- Body language
- Being coachable
- Doing extra work
- Being prepared
All of these are fundamental pieces of being a great athlete, and have nothing to do with skill, size, ability or strength. Athletes can simply CHOOSE to have a good attitude, give a great effort, be on time, do extra work, and so on.
Every coach wants a team full of athletes who do these things well. Improving them will undoubtedly make your team better and increase your chances of playing at the next level.
