How is March Madness going for your team? March Madness is a term that has become synonymous with the NCAA basketball tournament played every March. It comes from the fact that many games end in crazy maddening ways. There are also lots of upsets that add to the, well, madness. This makes predicting the winner of the tournament almost impossible. What I can predict is the team that will win will be the team whose players play together as a team.
Let me illustrate. How many of you have heard of Lebron James? LeBron James is arguably the best basketball player in the world. The Los Angeles Lakers acquired James, but they have a losing record this year. Why? Because one great player does not make for one great team. Lebron gets the headlines but that hasn’t translated into wins for the Lakers. As the saying goes, there is no I in team.
