The Greatest To Ever Play?

One of the classic debates that'll come up every so often in basketball circles is the question of who is the greatest to ever play?

It's a difficult one to answer because we've had the privilege of watching so many greats play the game.

Micheal Jordan won six championships with the Chicago Bulls and dazzled us with his jaw dropping aerial acrobatics.

Magic Johnson brought excitement to the fans of LA with his flashy no look passing ability and award winning smile.

Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain and Shaquille O'Neal are all fine examples of what dominant low post play looks like.

Whether you're developing your skills on the court or as a leader, it's key to recognize what our individual skills are and that they count for something.

Here are three quick points to understanding leadership development.


Effective leadership has to be impactful. In other words, your actions must mean something to those around you. Leadership isn`t what you do for yourself, rather how you make a difference to others.

Not all leaders are built the same. Each of us have our own unique personality styles like players on a basketball court. While there could be similarities between individuals at the end of the day, they`re `still different.

There isn`t a specific mold one must follow.`It can be whatever you want it to be as long as the end result meets the condition of my first point. Is it impactful? Does it meet the basic rules of effective leadership?


Taking the the time to understand what you bring to the table are critical to your developing leadership skills. Perhaps you're a good listener or maybe have a great sense of humour. Whatever it is, know that there is a place for them.
