Tarik vs.Tech: One More for the Road...

  • Black gave a clinic in the process of post play against a weak team. If he can do it again against the muscle of WVU, then we mAy have the missing piece to take the team beyond talent to a well-oiled machine. Either way, Joel needs to watch the tape to add the craft of post play to his growing knowledge of the techniques of post play. As Sade once sang, Tarik was a “smooth operator.”

    “Joel needs to watch the tape to add the craft of post play to his growing knowledge of the techniques of post play.”

    Absolutely! Joel may even improve more right now by studying the game and visualizing how he should play instead of spending his time and energy running up and down the court. The Russians proved it years ago by studying their Olympic athletes, and when they took time away from physical training and put it towards mental training, they lifted their performances.

    What a great add about the Russians, slayr. I never knew that they did that research and had that finding. That is really interesting.

    Also, to all board members, I FORGOT TO FOOTNOTE SLAYR FOR THE MISSING LINK CONCEPT. HE SAID IT FIRST in an exchange we had yesterday.

    “In the 1980 Olympics the Russians (Soviet) team did the following scientific experiment to boost the skills of their athletes:

    I) Group one did 100% of physical training.

    II) Group two did 75% physical training and 25% mental training (visualization).

    III) Group three did 50% physical and 50% mental training.

    IV) Group four did 75% mental and 25% physical training.

    Result: The fourth group showed the greatest improvement in performance. The Russian Olympic coaches concluded that mental training (creative visualizing) produced the following: a) Increase in personal motivation. b) Boosted athletic confidence because they visualized themselves winning their events. c) Improved Attention-Span by eliminating distractions from intruding on their training sessions.”


    Google “creative visualization” and find several good sources.

    Now… if we could just get Putin to try it every time before he makes a decision…

    Putin visualizes Obama and comes up a winner every time 🙂

  • @jaybate 1.0 good song btw
