Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals…
Kawhi Leonard, All-NBA player, misses a free throw with 10.2 seconds left in the game which would have put the Toronto Raptors up by 3 points. The resulting rebound in corralled and leads to the tying basket.
90-90…4.2 seconds left.
Nick Nurse, the coach of the Raptors, draws up a play…for Leonard. He takes the ball right shoots a high arching shot over 7ft center Joel Embiid. After a few bounces, the shot was good.
As educators, it's very easy to dwell on our mistakes. Lessons won't always go the way they were planned. Tools will fail. You won't always reach all students. Those things can't stop us from continuing to strive to be the best we can be.
