Dec. 09 | The 3-Point Play
Adopt a “singles and doubles” philosophy.
- Less home-run plays. More smart plays.
- Play under control
- Make the next right pass
- Take the on-balance, in-range shot
- Space the floor
- Go off 2
The turnaround fadeaway looks cool but doesn’t help your team win.
“The responsibility principle:
If things aren’t going well, you have one person to blame— yourself.
Somehow, you haven’t communicated well enough or explained clearly enough or taught convincingly enough what it is you want.”
– Dick Devenzio
“An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside.”
– Goi Nasu

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.
