If you are remotely interested in what’s been happening in the NBA over the past few days – or you have heard anything about a certain player with the initials LBJ – you are keenly aware that several teams are courting him to be their “savior”, hoping he will take them to the promise land of the championship. As hard as it might be for his new team’s fans to accept, it is not a foregone conclusion they will automatically win a championship trophy because he’s there.
Why? Because one superstar doesn’t make an entire team. A few good players with team chemistry will usually beat a team with a superstar (or even a few of them) that doesn’t have players who work well together. Coaches at every level will tell you that no matter how many great players you have, it’s team chemistry that makes the team successful.
Team chemistry is essentially everyone committing to a mutual goal, working hard together, getting along, and being willing to sacrifice their own glory for the benefit of the team. Team chemistry comes down to getting the job done while not caring who gets the credit when the team wins and accepting accountability when it loses.
Oversized egos have destroyed many teams, not just in sports, but also in businesses, churches, education, non-profits and community groups. Just because you hang around the same people all the time doesn’t make you a team. Don’t let your team be the next victim.
