Mike Conley Jr.: How to Be a Fearless Competitor
NBA point guard for the Utah Jazz and all-time leading scorer for the Memphis Grizzlies, Mike Conley Jr., joined host Michael Redd to talk about how to develop a winning mentality, why preparation and mental toughness are the keys to great achievements, and his journey as a pro athlete.
“The reason players aren’t afraid is they don’t think of the moment. For me, you don’t let the moment overtake you, you don’t think about the score, you don’t think about failure. You think about the opportunity that lies ahead.” – Mike Conley Jr.
The fourth overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft is a three-time NBA Sportsmanship Award-winner and was the franchise leader in multiple categories during his 12 seasons with the Grizzlies.
Mike Conley Jr is considered one of the best point guards in the NBA, and is certainly one of its toughest competitors. He was the highest-paid player in the NBA at one point and is also an impassioned philanthropist.
