Default If you could play basketball at an elite level what kind of mindset would you have?

I would start off like Kobe/MJ just because I hate losing and then probably turn into a Lebron mindset if I don't win cause I wanna enjoy my millions without the stress...

Serious question.

I have a huge ego IRL and am very competitive. I'm generally even-keeled and mild-mannered when conducting business, but when I get pumped up I'm unstoppable and talk a lot of trash.

Kinda remind myself of KG when I'm turned on on the court.

I'd be really nice, too nice to win a chip. I would be a soft leader.

I'm kinda soft spoken and "socially awkward" like rose...I wouldn't give a damn to do interviews before, during or after the game... But I would occasionally to let the fans know I respect and thank them for allowing me to get paid for playing the game I love....If I didn't have a family I'd honestly live in a basketball court...Put my mattress at half court and practice every damn day lmao.

I'd also play for minimum contract even if I was a major player/star. I play for the game and the game only...**** publicity, and **** big money. I don't need anything fancy, just give me a court, some shoes and a ball and I'm set.

No situational narcissism for me thank you very much lol..

I'd be serious as **** on court, and I'd do w/e it takes to win. Simple Fundamental team ball with a quite obsession/rage to win.

I'm not comfortable with being an alpha dog, probably gonna enjoy my career being a roleplayer enjoying 3 mil a year.

Same here, but I'd be a Rashard Lewis type of role player. $20 millie a year.

I'll try to have 1 career season and make some dumb owner stupid enough to give that type of money.

I would throw team mates under the bus to divert attention away from me, and pull lots of war hero faces in clutch time, meaning its irrelevant whether I make the shot or not.
