August 17 | The 3-Point Play
Whether you are a point guard dribbling and looking for an open man, or a forward wanting to drive in for a layup, the important thing that you must do is MOVE the defender who is guarding you.
It is not enough to merely keep the ball from them. Nor is it adequate to hope to fake them out by using a move you’ve practiced on a playground. Your purpose, very definite, is to MOVE them. Make them go places. Make them do things. Make them move to guard you.
“Influence always outpaces authority. And leaders who consistently leverage their authority to lead are far less effective in the long term than leaders who leverage their influence. Practice leading through influence when you’re not in charge. It’s the key to
leading well when you are.”
– Clay Scroggins
“No matter how significant or life-changing your greatest hit or miss might be, neither even begins to define who you are. Each of us is a product of all our experiences and all our interactions with other people. To cite calculus, we are the area under the curve.”
– Colin Powell

3-Point Play: On ducking out of sight, uncovering your potential, and training your attitude
Players trying to get open to receive a pass too often jockey back and forth, working very hard but not really going anywhere.
3-Point Play: On “FAT” defense, making courageous decisions, and passion vs. fear
FAT can be anything that indicates to the player with the ball that you are about to do something that you are not really about to do.
3-Point Play: On click passes, scattering sunshine, and keeping your promises
The only way you can make a click pass is to know before you get the ball what you are going to do with it.
