What is your favorite event of the year? For some people it’s the Superbowl, Grammy’s, Oscar’s, but for me its March Madness, hands down, its not even close.
March Madness does not only represent a tournament where the best college basketball teams get together and play to see who is #1 (sure, of course I’m rooting for Duke and want to see Coach K cut down another net), but it also is a time of year that represents change.
The seasons are changing, from a cold and long winter, into a season of spring, renewal, hope, and adventure. It’s also nostalgic for me because of all the memories associated to March, from Spring break days, to skipping school with my best friends every year for the Thursday and Friday games which always will provide the biggest upsets (sorry Mum), to all the emotion that the best college players in the land share on and off the court.
To honor this very special time of year I want to share with you a motivational / highlight reel of the All-Time leading scorer of Duke Basketball history and NBA superstar JJ Redick. He’s one of the hardest working people I’ve had the privilege to work with, dedicated to his family and strong man of God.
I hope the video inspires, motivates, and helps you take your game to the next level. If you cheer for Duke during the NCAA tournament that would be a bonus. So get your popcorn out no butter needed, hummus and celery, coconut water, and Zesta-C, tissue box (because it does get emotional), and pick a favorite team.
PS: A new season of the Coaching Conversation with yours truly is starting up in April with some special guests and a new look and feel. Hope you enjoy and as always, leave your comments and questions below and I’ll be sure to answer them.
GO DUKE !!!
