1Hey Coach,
I'm a 13 year-old girl and I play forward in basketball for my school. I was the best player on both guys' and girls' teams until this one girl came. Now we're in a huge competition about scoring the most and I want to do all I can to be as good as she is. Do you have any tips on how to become a more versatile player and be able to make a lot of the shots I take. I think my problem is I get discouraged when I miss a shot and I need a way to keep my game and my confidence up the whole time.

Hey eaglesbball213

It sounds like you've let this new player affect your game and you may have a case of KSS, otherwise known as Kobe-Shaq Syndrome. Kobe Bryant and Shaq are superstar players, who worked well together with the LA Lakers for several seasons and won three titles. But the team fell apart when both players wanted to be "the go to guy" who gets all the big stats. Kobe-Shaq Syndrome causes two very talented teammates to concentrate more on scoring points and putting up stats individually, rather than concentrating on helping their team win games. The competition by the two teammates usually results in less on the court team success and more dysfunction.

It sounds like you want to be the "go to girl" on your team. But you and the new girl shouldn't be in a "huge competition" about scoring the most points. You should be working together to help the team win more games. A little healthy competition between teammates is okay, but it shouldn't be something that takes you off your game or takes away from team success. You'll become a better and more confident basketball player by learning to work with and learn from your new teammate, rather than competing against her on the court.
