BASKETBALL CAREER IMPROVEMENTS, MEMORIES & EMOTIONS: GRAPHS AND CHARTS

A Basketball Career in Charts and Graphs

I will start with a disclaimer: no scientific data was collected during my basketball career that contributed to the making of these visuals.

It was a completely subjective assessment on my part in determining how to best represent what I did and how I felt during my playing days.

I’m a BIG visual learner and I believe some of the illustrations below can help young players make sense of and truly understand some important lessons not just about basketball, but also the life lessons that sports can teach you.
