So I was watching my favorite movie the other day – “A Bronx Tale” – and when Lorenzo the bus driver told his son C, “The saddest thing in life is wasted talent,” it really got me thinking about all of the athletes around the country whose wrong decisions seal their fate of being playground has-beens.

Or players blessed with all the talent that just didn’t have the work ethic to get them to that next level.

It’s truly sad.

Young athletes should use those examples, and there are plenty in every city or town, as fuel for their grind to become the best player they can be.
