I’m not a huge NBA fan. That’s probably a generous description for someone who watches the Finals and selected ESPN highlights. But what I am a fan of is confidence in action, something that has been vividly on display in three recent games. Watch these clips:
Do you think any of them doubted for a second that they could make those shots? If they had second guessed they would have missed. There was no time to doubt. They just had to take confident action and follow through.
And there lies the only life lesson I’ve learned from basketball that is not related to Coach Wooden. Maybe I’ll watch a few more games this season (or maybe I’ll just continue to watch old NFL clips while counting down the days until preseason begins).
