Know Your Role

And make sure you don’t say anything stupid. That seems like a good plan, especially when you’re a 20-year-old point guard in his first year under a veteran coach.

For example: in the most recent issue of ESPN the Magazine, athletes were asked how often their coaches were wrong on a scale of 1-10. Most didn’t give huge numbers. Out of the eight athletes asked, the highest numbers were two 6′s. One of those was Larry Bird, which isn’t all that surprising.

The lowest? Jrue Holiday – who said about Doug Collins: “One. Why? Because I have to say that. And why do I have to say that? Because I like playing.”

Good answer, Jrue, good answer.
