Champions are NOT the same as super stars. A super star looks good in the stat book, shines in front of their fans, does things that make themselves stand out above their teammates, seeks titles, glory and ego-building praise.
Champions make their team members better. They shine with their team and not above them. Champions are champions when people are watching, but also when there is no recognition at all. On the side lines, champions are as game changing as they are when they have the ball.
Are you a champion, or a superstar?
