Some thoughts about the Denver Nuggets Brawl

Some thoughts about the Denver Nuggets Brawl
If you're a basketball player, basketball fan, basketball coach, you have seen and heard about the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks brawl.

Then NBA game was a very nasty scene once again for all, and while the NBA commissioner David Stern came down hard on the player who participated in the brawl by giving out some stift fines and suspensions.

So why do we bring up this situation? Because in all of situations, fights, brawls, mayhem, there's a lesson to be learned.

Not only athletes, but we feel that everyone should train themselves to be in control of themselves, thier actions, and how they react in certain situations. One key in doing so is always trying to find the positive in every situation, no matter how bad or how big the situation my seem. We know that not everyone is going to be playing in the NBA and get failed really hard, but we do know that everyone is going to have a bad day here and there. Through this bad days, tough situations, or even mistakes that often teach you the most not only about yourself but what it takes to succeed in life.

One lesson that we thought everyone could take from hearing, seeing, and talking about this NBA brawl is that self control is a key role not only in the game of basketball but in life.

What does it mean and take to have self control?

The players that we know and see mostly let their game do the talking. A player with true celf control is the one that does not show their emotions during stressful times. These players or not the ones that talk bad about they organizatoin, players, coaches in the locker room. These players are the one that own up to their personal responiblies and say yes "I took the game winning shot, and I missed it.", or the one that comes into practice early because they missed that last second free throw. If you want success, you have to earn it through having true self control starting with your emotions, your tongue, and your actions.


A true self control players play under control, while making strong moves to the basket, finishing plays, taking good shots, never getting too upset or too excited. True self control players don't let themselves lose control because they know they can't play at their best when they lose control. Great players maintain control both mentally and physically.

A lot of people watched the Knicks - Nuggets fight a few days ago and have now forgotten about it. But you're an athlete. If your a true self control player your goal is to get better every day. Everyone else has forgotten about the fight, but you just took the situation and have used it to help improve your game.

That's what great self control athletes do. That's what great self control basketball players do.
