Manu Ginobili Lacks Confidence

If you’re the San Antonio Spurs, this is perhaps not something you want to hear from your most dynamic player: “Ginobili says self doubt has robbed his game of much of its effectiveness. ‘I’m lacking a lot of stuff, mainly confidence,’ he said. ‘I’m still hesitating, doing things I don’t usually do — passing up shots or not attacking the rim as hard. Maybe I’m thinking too hard, or worried because I already missed six games. I really don’t know.’ Ginobili’s crisis of confidence has put Spurs coach Gregg Popovich in a tough spot. He needs Ginobili to be one of his go-to guys down the stretch of close games, but only if he is making good decisions.”

    Flopping takes guts, I mean you might actually hurt yourself doing it.

    I heard Mike D’Antoni once killed a player because he lacked confidence. His reasoning, “if you don’t believe in yourself, I’m supposed to kill you, after all I am Mike D’ Antoni.” Then he shanked him with a Denny’s spork.
