How does a 6'-1" point guard get 18 rebounds in a playoff game?? Along with 29 points and 13 assists?? Wow.... Here is a young player with a lot of skills, surrounded by perennial all-stars, REALLY stepping it up on the big stage and leading his team to victory against King Lebron James and the Cavaliers.
It was pretty exciting watching Rondo work his magic yesterday. He had great visibility and mastery of the court. He used his skills of speed and quickness to their fullest, wasn't afraid of going up against anyone (think 7"+ Shaquille O'Neil). And he had an uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time to get all those rebounds. That's called anticipation, and he did it better than any of the other players on the floor.
Anticipation, visibility, using strengths to their fullest, being positioned right, having no fear..... hmmm, could those attributes be important in other aspects of life? Like our business perhaps?
