Thank you for your interest in the Jalen Brunson Skills Academy. I am excited to meet you and share my love for the game of basketball.
This week is about YOU. What are you willing to do to become the best player you can be? Being the best player doesn’t mean that you are the fastest or score the most points or win the most games. Being the best means that you are committed to learn and develop a mindset of hard work, discipline and focus. This will create a winning combination towards becoming the most coachable player and best teammate you can be.
When I was your age, I dreamed of playing basketball on the biggest stage, taking and making that winning shot and just playing the game that I loved. I was eager to learn whatever I could from my coaches, teammates and by watching other famous players. The one thing that occurred to me most was the work that I would be required to put in to make those dreams become a reality, and more importantly, my willingness to do the work.
Over the next few days, the goal is for you to learn many of those very same skills and techniques that I attained along my journey. I believe this will help you develop that same mindset. Together, we will work hard, play hard and begin to pave the path for you to become the best player you can be. Let’s get it!
