Raising Basketball IQ – What Causes a Player’s Stupidity and Defining Terms
Have you ever wondered why some players just do not seem to be able to grasp any concept that you teach, why do they always look dumbfounded when you are talking to them and end up doing the complete opposite of what you told them to do? Or better yet, the exact same thing they did last time that you just told them not do do????? This can cause a ton of frustration for both the player and the coach. As the coach you can become frustrated or angry with the player, give up on teaching that kid and move on to those “who listen”, “who follow instructions” and “who are coachable”. For the player they can lose self-confidence, get defeated, stop trying and eventually they will quit if only in spirit.
