Good post. Many people are skilled, but mental toughness and desire is what separates a lot of people. And its more than just wanting to win. Its taking on criticism from your teammates, trash talking shots not falling ect... Its knowing how to not get too high or too low within a game

When things aren't going your way and you can turn it around, that impresses me as a player. That's how i know a person really understands how to play and is good. Because any1 can be confident when their having a hot game. Its when the opposite happens, what do u do then?
