It’s playoffs time in the NBA and to those who are avid fans of this event like me, we all know that it is very exhausting to players. Whether it be physically, mentally or emotionally, every game and every series take too much from the players.
It is very important though to have at least one “badass leader” in the team who can motivate and maybe show his teammates the energy and will that are needed to get the W.
I remember last year when Dwyane Wade’s Miami Heat was down with a game in their Best of Seven Series against the tactical team, San Antonio Spurs. Wade, I think, is the best example of a badass leader who can motivate his team and will convert this into a big comeback win.
How did D Wade do it? He just took chance to talk in a huddle and led the whole team (with all his emotions and toughness) to a Red Lines inspired WE FIGHT chant. It was all about his will that led the Heat to a win that also made a statement that his team is not done yet.
Take a look at this real badass huddle chant. It’s one of the best.
You’ll even hear the commentator saying: “They seem desperate, they seem hungry, they seem a little angry.”
I am hoping that there will be another player and team for this playoffs who will steal the limelight just to show how driven they are to get the Larry O’ Brien trophy.
