Because it is almost impossible as the length of time and dedication it takes makes it tough for many players to actually go through the process and get better over time. The training and development process weeds out everyone but the best quality, the brightest, and most disciplined players and even the vocal ones. But most importantly training weeds out the individual players from the team players. I cant figure out why more players can see themselves as a professional when all they can do is brag about how good they are, or how many points they put up. You never hear players talk about their flaws and the things they need to work on or how they gave up scoring for the game to focus more on the defensive side of the ball. Or the fact that they still have a lot to do to improve and get better. This is the unfortunate REALITY of this industry and until all these so-called professional owners and coaches stop pretending these players are good enough for the next level and stop telling them they are good, these players will continue to walk around with an ego and attitude about their ability to play "professionally". So to end this, all I can ask you is: When will this minor-league industry be able to actually see these players begin to develop into professional athletes with high level training and development, instead of assuming they are already there and do not need any EXTRA WORK outside of shooting a ball and running up and down the floor for exercise? I think it will happen when these leagues begin to show uniformity and a structure that puts all teams liable for a training and development program instead of just focusing on playing the game basketball for a few bucks. Yes it takes time, but if your a true owner and coach, this is what your players come to you for. To get what they NEED not what they WANT.......
