Now that January is here a lot of teams are beginning league and conference play and many players are dreaming about eventually being named MVP.
Nationally renowned basketball strength and conditioning coach Alan Stein recently posted his own thoughts on being an MVP. (The entire post can be found at www.blog.strongerteam.com)
Every player on the planet should have one goal for the New Year – to become an MVP.
No, not the Most Valuable Player. There can only be one of them.
Every player should strive to become a More Valuable Player! Everyone can be that type of MVP! Becoming a More Valuable Player will help you increase your playing time, make your teammates better, and improve your team’s ability to be successful.
Most Valuable Players are usually a matter of opinion and are only named after some type of voting process. Some times the voters get it right and some times they don’t. However, More Valuable Players don’t require a vote – they only require hard work, focus, and dedication and as a result that distinction is within the grasp of each and every player.
