Marcus Brown summed it up quite nicely in his interview with FIBA after an extraordinary game with Zalgiris Kaunas. Brown is an American is balancing basketball and winning by having more interaction with the country, team, family and other outside of basketball activities. I agree 100% with Marcus, because if you’re only concentrating on basketball it could overwhelm you and become stressful which is not fun at all.
In his 5minute interview he speaks very well about his team and what they are trying to accomplish. Good luck!
