Everyone loves winning, and everyone loves a teammate who can score in the clutch; but when a player transforms from a scoring predator to a filthy ball hog, team unity can fall apart. Just look at Teen Wolf's Scott Howard.
To help separate the shooters from the scorers, try hitting up this recommended reading: Everyone Hates a Ball Hog, But They All Love a Scorer, by Coach Koran Godwin, founder of JumpStartHoops.com.
Coach Godwin's book offers a complete guide to being a team player, both on and off the court. He discusses his philosophy about basketball and life and offers advice on being a good teammate, drawn from his experiences as a former player and all-time leading scorer at the University of North Florida. Other topics include how to score with your head, not just your feet; the importance of studying film; prioritizing your life off the court; and how to use basketball to excel in life.
