Characteristics of a Basketball MVP and how to acquire them
🏀 An MVP is an actual Leader
Loving Basketball means loving your team. Loving your team means that you have to do everything in your power to make the team grow confidence and maintain its cohesion. Even if it requires sacrificing a shoot for a teammate missing the spotlight. You have to do it in order to keep your team involved. Outstanding players like LeBron do it, and you should try it too.
A leader may be a low profile athlete, but his value is revealed when a team rises. Always remember…teamspirit is critical for victory. If you want personal growth you should focus on your team’s growth and inspire others to do so as well.
🏀 An MVP works hard
More specifically, works harder than he/she thinks that a player should. Afterall, becoming an MVP has more to do with general effort than natural skills. You should develop consistent ethic work, be punctual at your practices, follow a schedule, avoid mistakes and give more than 100% of your strength at each game. So, aim at becoming not just a great Basketball Player technically but also an outstanding athlete. Put that extra effort into action. You have always have some more to give. So give it.
🏀 An MVP has versatility
Scoring alone doesn’t win games and Championships. Cameras and claps are awesome but if you truly wish to become great, you can’t focus only on what you do best. You should try to become great at EVERYTHING. Keep working on your shoots, try harder to guard or assist, focus on becoming a helpful rebounder, create opportunities for others etc. Every position and move matters.

Or the new star of Milwaukee Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo, who became the first player in NBA history to finish a regular season in the top 20 in total points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks. What these guys have in common? Their STATS of course 📈! Both players act smart and develop equally all Basketball skills. They track their stats and focus on improving them simultaneously.
