Nov. 03 | The 3-Point Play
If you are content to do something in a slovenly way because the competition happens to be easy, you have to realize that you are not preparing for tougher competition.
If you fail to improve in practice, the increased effort won’t be enough when crunch time comes. You can’t only increase your effort to be successful in a championship game, you have to improve your skills and performance every single day during the months leading up to that game.

“If you have a talent, use it in every way possible. Don’t hoard it. Don’t dole it out like a miser. Spend it lavishly like a millionaire intent on going broke.”
– Brendan Francis
This one’s for the “cool kids”…
The kids who like to sit in the back row and goof off…
Unless you are trying to make a bad impression, always make it a point to get to class early and sit in the front row. Get over yourself, and you might just be surprised at how much you learn and how much easier it is to pay attention when there’s nothing but a few feet of air and no distractions between you and your teacher.

3-Point Play: On foot fakes, accumulated actions, and being a successful student
Foot fakes are extremely useful when you have the ball in a scoring position and haven’t used your dribble yet. To do a fake-and-crossover well and make it work, be sure you don’t just move your foot.
3-Point Play: On measuring performance, bouncing back, and study buddies
You are your ideal opponent. The best way to improve is to compete ferociously against your perfectly matched competitor, You-Yesterday.
