Killer mindset checklist – Are you a tough player?

Here’s a quick list of what basketball killers do.

  • Do you refuse to lose at any game, drill, situation that you are in?
  • Are you motivated, or irritated when your opponent talks trash to you?
  • Do you get mad when the opposite team scores?
  • At the end of a basketball game – Do you think about your points or if you won the game?
  • When you lose but scored a lot of point, are you secretly happy?
  • When the opposite team gets a fast break, do you always try to sprint back to prevent the basket?
  • When your coach gives you an instruction, do you implement it the next time down the court?
  • When you just missed a shot, do you remain confident, or do you stop shooting?
  • Do you win every running drill in your team?
  • Do you really train harder than anyone else in the world?
  • Do you fight for loose balls?
  • Are you scared of contact?
