As a member of the Indiana Pacers, current Denver Nuggets center Roy Hibbert embraced the idea of advanced mental preparation during the NBA season.
The NBA is comprised of many of the most extraordinary athletes in the world. Their captivating physical abilities are on display at any given moment throughout each game played. Much work is put in by trainers, doctors and coaches of the team to make sure players are in the best shape, able-bodied and knowledgeable of the game plan. These factors seem to be the most important areas in the maintenance of a functional NBA player.
However, the league’s promotion of player mental preparation has been on the rise in recent years. As vital as physical conditioning is, it is only half of what is required to help players succeed.
