Hands. Feet. Eyes. All working together as one. The speed of the game can be a challenge for some. Players find out reel soon that something, something, just aint right (singing in my Keith Sweat voice). It’s one thing to simulate game speed in practice, it’s another to be able to perform when it counts. Big time players make it look easy, some would say even appearing to play in slow motion. All while still able to show killer instincts when it counts. Pull the dagger you feel me.
Many who are in the lab, working on their game, find out the hard way family. It’s a two way street: game preparation vs. game time performance. Picture this…You practice with the best trainers, putting in hours of work in the lab. You compete in practice and go to work during pick up games. Unfortunately, when it’s time to shine under the lights, you just can’t seem to develop that magic needed to excel and impress the powers that be – D1 scouts. Players showing up from other countries with skills of their own, are finding out real fast they must step their game up to “a hole ‘notha level” in order to compete with the big boys.
It will be interesting to see those who truly want to make it to the big dance and those who just want to be a part of the team. 2017-18 should yield some true thoroughbreds, punching their ticket to a college campus of choice. Like those Gatorade commercials folks…is it in you? If you know deep down inside you don’t have what it takes to make an impact, step aside for soldiers who truly want to make a difference. Sorry for being blunt fam’. Game recognize game.
Become great at what you do
