#28 “Studio Sounds: The Game”

SERVING the Game.
OBSERVE the game, its rules, it’s mechanics, it’s fundamentals, it’s history, it’s beauty, it’s ugliness, it’s purpose.
It can one day lead you to observe all of the above within ourself. Know yourself in order to know the game.
Discover the importance of empathy, humility, experience.
As officials we are the stewards of integrity.
It’s about the game, our partners, then ourselves.
This game is choreographed by the basketball gods; know your role and play your position; allowing the players and coaches and fans to experience otherworldly competition. Be a disciple of the basketball gods and practice discipline. We must adopt a businesslike approach to helping the game mean something.
Let’s be impeccable communicators, not only with players, coaches and peers, but with ourselves. Be your toughest, most honest critique during our deep assessment of self.

Operate under the 5P’s:

What we give to the game we will exponentially get back in return.
This game was here long before us and will live on forever as long as we do our part to nurture it in this present moment. No play is more important than the play that’s happening now and no game is more important than the one we are now serving. When we serve the game the game becomes self-serving.
