Dec. 16 | The 3-Point Play
Do coaches have favorites? You bet they do.
Here’s how to become one:
Be a scrappy, hard-nosed, screen-setting, ball-diving, defense-loving, in your face, “I won’t back down” type of athlete.
Coaches love those players.
“Winning has a price. And leadership has a price. So I pulled people along when they didn’t want to be pulled. I challenged people when they didn’t want to be challenged. And I earned that right … Once you join the team you live at a certain standard that I play the game (at) and I wasn’t going to take anything less … I wanted to win but I wanted them to be a part of it as well.”
— Michael Jordan in The Last Dance
Explore the edges of the sandbox.
Color outside the lines.
Spill some milk.
There are many ways to play, coach and live, and you must walk the path that fits you best.
Be creative. Be unique. Be YOU.

3-Point Play: On getting cut, good leadership, and being boring
No one gets cut from their team because they can’t make a step back or fade-away.
3-Point Play: On being ahead, changing the world, and comparison
Comparison is the thief of joy when applied broadly, but the teacher of skills when applied narrowly.
3-Point Play: On practice speed, the efforts of many, and habits
Practice at a speed that makes you uncomfortable so, in a game, you feel confident playing at a speed that makes your opponent uncomfortable.
