“It seemed to exist only to maintain itself.” Joan Didion
Decisions are hard to make
Especially when feelings, egos, and basketball are concerned.
There’s enough alpha in these guys that they think,
Just maybe, they might become LeBron or Stephen,
So it hurts when they hear something different.
I learned coaching girls earlier this year
That there is something more to games than
Winning or losing and the sports are not coached,
That’s what makes a day like to today so difficult.
Hopefully, the guys not making the team
Understand the reasons why; we talked.
Hopefully, they will take on the next step of their journeys
With basketball in mind and resilience overriding
A temporary set back.
