Ridin’ The Pine

If you spend more time in the bench than in the game, this is okay. Getting upset about it to the point where it lowers your motivation will only hurt your game play. If you want to get in the game, you have to give something to the team. Be a defensive specialist or work hard to get rebounds. If you work hard, your coach will notice it, and you’ll get game time.

Be like this bench player:


In the short term, if you’re playing with better players than yourself, then this will help you improve your skills faster than if you were playing with players who were less skilled than you were. Use your bench time to motivate the players in the game or learn from their strengths and weaknesses. Be active on the bench. Sitting there being upset you aren’t playing won’t get you in the game, that’s for sure.
