If you play any sport, you know that nothing beat hitting the game winning shot or having a walk-off base hit to win. But doing that at the NBA level is a whole different ballgame. NBA’s Brooklyn Nets player Paul Pierce can attest to that. Pierce recalls his most memorable game winning shots was back in 2010, when he was with the Boston Celtics, at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks. It was a very hostile environment for him because of the rivalry the two teams had. There was only a few seconds left on the clock when Pierce got the ball to take the game winner. Pierce says, “I have been practicing this situation my entire life, so I knew exactly when to make my move.” After extreme preparation, Pierce made a step back game winner. The adrenaline rush was so unbearable, he couldn’t help but run around making victory laps even though there was still a timeout being taken. This goes to show that your childhood dreams of practicing that game winner can always come to life. Don’t ever give up on that dream, because some day, it could come true!
