Short Memory

A great Shooting Guard has a very short memory. He doesn't remember the last shot he missed, he only knows the next one is going in. He knows that he put in the work in practice, and that every shot he's taking is a shot he can and will make. Jon Starks of the New York Knicks had a short memory(maybe too short for some Knicks fans). In Game 7 of the 1994 finals, Starks went 2-18 from the field. This included an 0-11 fourth quarter. Yet if he was open right now, I bet you he would still be shooting. That's what a great Shooting Guard has, and Jon Starks was a great Shooting Guard. A short memory.
