The reason you are losing……
“Here’s why you are losing. You are all 22 year old and you are suffering in this league because of that. You are all 22 year old and that is not helping you right now, not in a league where the older, more experienced teams are winning. You are all 22 year old and if you could dominate this league at 22 then you wouldn’t have much of a league. You are all 22 and you look at things personally and not collectively, and that is the main reason why you’re not successful. You are all 22 and if you don’t stop caring about your personal stats and your contracts and your individual performances, then you are not going to be successful. There are people telling me we have to get older to be successful, but if you start acting older and stop worrying about your individual statistics, then we are wiser beyond our years.”
