1. Reinvent yourself
Michael Jordan never stopped improving. Throughout his legendary career, we can see multiple instances of him reinventing his game and taking it to another level.
His first major development came from accepting the triangle as an offensive system. No longer would Jordan shoulder the offensive load himself. Instead, he began to buy into a team-oriented playstyle.
Then, later in his career, Jordan had to come to grips with his athleticism slowly declining. He couldn’t simply outjump opponents in his 30s. To overcome this, Jordan became a master in the post, perfecting the fadeaway jump shot.
The Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry need to match this energy. They can’t enter the 2020-21 season expecting things to work as they did before. There will be major changes with Kevin Durant and Andre Iguodala gone.
The road to another championship will not be the same for the Warriors next season. The team will need to improvise and learn how to adapt in order to climb back to the top of the mountain.
