SAN ANTONIO – Nothing washes away the stench of disappointment and underachieving better than hope.
Okay, winning does too. But first there must be hope.
The NBA Draft is the perfect example of what some would call “hope trafficking.”
Front office executives beam at the opportunity to sell fans hope.
They use every opportunity to tell fans that whoever was selected will be a vital part of the organization’s fabric.
That this player has the exact missing skill set needed to field a winner. That they will be coachable, work hard, and be part of a winning culture for years to come.
