Dur­ing my NBA Career I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to play in 75 Play­off games. Every sin­gle one of those games was excit­ing. The crowds were loud­er, the media atten­tion increased and a pal­pa­ble buzz could be felt in the lock­er room and around the city. Play­ing against the best of the best to see who would come out on top was invig­o­rat­ing. It was a time we dou­bled down on prepa­ra­tion and turned up the inten­si­ty of our play and communication.


Before every play­off game our coach­ing staff would pre­pare us with moun­tains of per­ti­nent sta­tis­tics. We knew how many times James Wor­thy drib­bled left or right and his cor­re­spond­ing shoot­ing per­cent­age; Gary Pay­ton’s favorite tar­gets on the move and how many times Hakeem Ola­ju­won went to the mid­dle ver­sus his base­line jumper. It was impor­tant infor­ma­tion but we had to keep it all in con­text. As play­ers we had to focus on our strengths and com­mit to a high­er lev­el of com­mu­ni­ca­tion to win. Each pos­ses­sion was so impor­tant the only way to stay on top was to keep a close eye on our team­mates and our com­peti­tors. We talked out on the floor and in the hud­dle, mak­ing small adjust­ments as each play pro­gressed. Most peo­ple close down when the game gets stress­ful, we had to do just the oppo­site. Exchang­ing our ideas in real time gave us the edge we need­ed to get to the next level.
