Understanding Whats Needed to Have Success

  • What it feels like to be a senior (the sacrifice for the team)
  • How much time the coaching staff puts in trying to prepare the team for life, practices and games
  • How much time the coaching staff spends thinking about what is best for the team
  • Your team is only as good as the last player to buy in (weakest link) – you have a “true” team only when every last player has bought in
  • When you win with a “team”, the victory tastes much sweeter
  • Team chemistry is the most important thing in the game of basketball – without it championships are hard to come by
  • That the “team” is not the coaches’ team, it’s your (players) team
  • That it can take an entire season to build a “team” and one incident to destroy the chemistry that was built
  • How you play in practice ultimately affects your performance in the game
  • If you want to be the best player, you have to be the hardest worker
  • It doesn’t matter how good you are if you are not mentally tough
  • That you win games by preparing properly in practice and not just lacing up the sneakers on game night
  • It’s hard as a coach to sit a player who makes hustle plays consistently and works hard in practice
  • The importance of ball pressure and jumping to the ball and how to play it properly
  • Communication is a must to be successful on and off the court
  • I have a better chance to play if I am a great defender vs. A good shooter
  • The sooner I realize that everything starts with defense the better i will be able to prepare myself for the practices and games
  • The key to becoming a great rebounder is putting forth the effort to go to the glass and ability has little to do with it (rebound sequence)
  • A good team defense is built with the foundation of trust
  • It’s not who starts the game, it’s who finishes the game – be a finisher
  • You have to have a great second half warm-up physically to get yourself ready mentally (perceived ability that we are ready to go)
  • That you can control two things in life: 1. Attitude 2. Effort – and more often than not, positive words and actions create positive reactions
