It's amazing to meet the difference in mentality between guys like Kawai Leonard and, say, Alexis ajinc Darko Millicic, Kwamé Brown, and so many other supertalented guys who have the physical tools to be stars in the league, but don't have the mental edge to make it happen. That is something that you cannot coach. Ironically, being coachable and being a learning type of person who just gets better by applying himself is something that you either have or you don't, like either being 7 feet tall or not, or being quick or not. So many times we think the raw physical aspects of the game are the only things that are either there or not there. But time and time again we see that the mental aspect is also something that you either have or you don't.
