It’s the recent NBA final series and the worth of our “Delly” as he has become affectionately known but in real life goes by the name Matthew Dellavedova, which had me thinking about the worth of players in any sport? There is always the ridiculously talented who’s fame becomes plastered upon billboards and advertising merchandise that we all know and identify with. Well maybe not identify with, perhaps just idolise in a fashion that only Sports stars or Rock Gods can be. I believe that these are carefully balanced by the somewhat less talented player, often coined with the terminology of; “Where did he/she come from?” “How did they get so good without any of us noticing?”
Well I’ll give it a try. Is it because they never had that natural talent and rather that they kept on going when everything was in their way? Was it that they never gave up and at every heartbreaking juncture, they simply got up, dusted themselves off and tried again, only this time even harder?
Yes that is my supposition.
