I walked away last night having made some disturbing observations:
- The majority of young players are not being taught [or not embracing] the concept of team basketball; a ton of one-on-one play is what I saw Monday:(
- The fundamentals of the game seem to have been lost. Last night I was never boxed out on a rebound. I never had a screen set for me. I never saw a pick and roll. It was a sad state of affairs.
- The cursing was out of control. In the first hour that I was in the gym I know I heard 20-30 curse words. I've never expected the lost to talk like they're saved but I have to say that it broke my heart to know that these young men were so "disconnected" with God that they would walk into a church gym and drop the f bomb like they were at the park.
As I've had time to reflect on the contrast between the "new school" versus "old school" I have to say that the game seems to be changing. And though it's not all for the bad I sure do miss a good pick and roll:)
