Welcome to our self-help seminar.
I’m pleased to see the your faces today, the elite superstars of the NBA.
You know what? You've already made a big step just showing up here today. Go ahead and give yourself a hand.
(Dwight Howard, looking around, smiling and clapping. Kobe gives him an annoyed look.)
LeBron, Carmelo, it’s good to see you here. I'm glad you all could make it.
I understand from your colleagues that some of you aren’t always tolerant of criticism. Well, that’s OK. Today, we will walk together through the process of self-reflection.
Kobe, please don’t make that face.
(Kobe face turns to Kobe shrug.)
Please, everyone close your eyes. Imagine a world of no criticism. A game of love: a ball, your teammates and a tender coach. No one is here to hurt you. You’re free to express yourself.
How do you see yourself? How do others view you? What changes do you need to make? But mostly, what lessons have you learned about yourself so far this season?
Slowly open your eyes. Now please, everyone open your journal.
Write what comes into your mind.
