Stop counting our pockets and dehumanizing us NBA Players

We missed last week… we apologize! We are back today… but AJ Richardson is NOT but we are proud of our guy for going out there and grinding. The NBA has been crazy but we did call it. Will the Warriors get back to their championship level. The Jazz ain’t playing and we (the Mavericks) got work to do. I want to stress for the second episode in a row…. WE DON’T go out there and purposely want to play badly. We are human and we can’t play perfectly all the time. Last but not least we get some special guest appearances and some new guests on the way.

Bench Decorum - The Theo Effect

Yes…we’re talking about “Bench Decorum” we all know about the infamous white shirt incident in Golden State. Today we clear the air and explain what this means and what to expect this coming season. Regardless of your occupation if you’re not having fun doing it you’re not going to win. You can see it on the faces and body language of opposing teams when they walk onto the court. Bringing a positive mindset leads to winning and at the end of the day regardless of how you contribute, winning matters. This upcoming season I’m prepared for the opportunity and when my name is called ill be ready!
