Here’s how most interviews with Gregg Popovich go:
“What does your team need to do to overcome this deficit?”
”We’ll need to execute.”
“A rough second quarter, what are they doing defensively to slow you down?”
”They’re executing better than we are.”
“Your team was down 10, now up 15, what was the difference in the third quarter?”
Now, this may be an oversimplification, but what if it’s not? We get so caught up on the score, the results, that we forget our assignments when it matters. Sure, every now and then, take a step back and have the end in sight, but let your constant focus be on executing today.
