Why has sports become all about the numbers? Whether scoring, rebounds, assists, etc. This often drives athletes to no longer play the game for their teams but for themselves and how they are rewarded.
What ever happened to winning being enough?
Nowadays, athletes would rather lose by 20 points as long as it meant they got their 15+ points.
I challenge you to watch and observe a game (a FULL game and watch what the players do when they DO NOT have the ball), don’t only create an opinion based on stats, highlights, and social media. Recognize those players who are the real MVP’s, who are those who will dive on the floor for a loose ball, deflect a pass for their teammate to get the steal, one who has the PASSION and PRIDE to not let their opponent score.
We NEED these REAL athletes who will do whatever it takes to WIN!
Check out this video.. Don’t only watch Rondos awesome hustle play but his teammate who deflected the pass to make Rondos play happen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyhx0i27-Cc
Unfortunately, this is so true. I’ve seen it time and time again ranging from high school, to college, to professional athletes. I personally feel like it makes games less enjoyable to watch. I would love to watch a game where all the players played as a team and not just for themselves.
I completely agree, a lot of those hustle plays also add a lot to the game and make it more fun to watch.
I think kids are looking up to players like Labron, Curry, Kobe and see the numbers game. They want to be in the spotlight to stand out when most teams with 1 great player don’t win championships
LEBRON : )
Yes definitely. ..the role players are just as important as the superstars
